Let’s have a look at everything that increasing in price. Food, almost 25% increase and each time I go back to the supermarket, I notice increases. Energy, has been predicted to rise by 20% And salaries? Well, they are the same. This all means, we will have to decrease the amount of food we buy even further and decrease the amount of heating, hot water and lighting we use altogether. This will mean more veg and lentil soup, more blankets on the bed and on our laps in the evening. Fewer uses of the washing machine and wear the clothes for longer. Less of everything and yet, pay the same! I think I’ll cope.
We’ll all have to discount store shop and then, with a small list, stick to it and eat it slowly!
Dearly Beloved will have to stock up on pasta to fill him up.
We’ll all have to eat less.
Plus, some of us are facing pay cuts, redundancies, pension cuts and will have to be even more creative with even less. Downsizing will not be an option, it will be a necessity. What will you have to do with less of and what are you expecting to pay more for and not even get as much as you do now.
We’ll all have to be creative together!
