I am trying to come up with a list of these. I have noticed three in my own grocery/everyday expenses: Flour bag (nearly 6%), fare (5%) and bread (25-30% fr what i remember just a few days ago).
I suppose they were supposed to increase considering the loss of value for £ after Brexit vote. But I was too busy to take notice and only noticed these three.
Can we please try to document it somehow?

Not a stealth boast but I really haven't noticed the difference at all. Not in grocery shopping, nor job security etc.

There is a courgette shortage but don't think this is related!

Everything has gone up. 5p and 10p here and there and then some things have gone up by quite a bit.

Theweasleytwins Mon 30-Jan-17 22:24:10

Formula went up £1

Champagneformyrealfriends Mon 30-Jan-17 22:24:36

Formula-up from £10 to £10.85.

Nor me, but I've recently realised I was being a mug paying £2-3 for Colgate when Sainsbury's own toothpaste is 55p. See also Rice Krispies/supermarket cereal. Feel a fool.

I just notice everything getting smaller. A bag of store-baked cookies - you used to get 5 for £1, then 4, now 3. That sort of thing.

Baked beans have risen in tesco local.
Crumpets in Asda gone up from 50p to 55p

Butter - was 89p-ish before Christmas, was £1.09 for the same stuff today.

We have to buy a few medical supplies that are imported from the USA for a rare disease. Obviously they have increased in price dramatically - we are paying about 60% more due to the decline in the pound.

Formula increase has made a big difference to us with two formula fed babies - thank god they are now weaning and drinking less.
Also our rent has gone up £25.
We are really feeling the pinch sad

BillyButtfuck Mon 30-Jan-17 22:31:05

Ooooo and bloody cream eggs

ArriettyClock1 Mon 30-Jan-17 22:31:16

I haven't noticed anything going up.

Our oil and electricity have gone down though and I only noticed that because they wrote to tell us.

I'm with imperial,

Morrisons used to do 6 for a £1 on there pix and mix bread rolls, then it was 5, now 4.
Ive also noticed every day items have gone up too- peanut butter up to 2.35 from 1.99

Sainsburys butter. Autumn-time - 85p per pack. Pre-Christmas - £1.10 per pack. Today - £1.45 per pack. Almost doubled in 3 months.

I'm sure packets of things are slightly smaller and/or slightly lighter.

Good god their blush

The price of lettuce/salad has increased like 400% in the last couple weeks due to the bad weather in Europe/north Africa. Was £1.85 for an iceberg lettuce in Aldi yesterday!

healthyheart Mon 30-Jan-17 22:34:34

Petrol & diesel

clumsyduck Mon 30-Jan-17 22:35:25

I haven't noticed either but then I shop at Aldi for food and other bargain stores for cleaning stuff etc and they still seem as cheap as they ever were to me

leccybill Mon 30-Jan-17 22:35:27

Pepsi 2l bottle.
Was £1 since forever in Asda, this week up to £1.29.

FuckOffDailyMailQuitQuotingMN Mon 30-Jan-17 22:36:00

Someone commented on another thread that Aldi had increased.

FuckOffDailyMailQuitQuotingMN Mon 30-Jan-17 22:36:20

Yes, Pepsi Max definitely up.

ThePinkOcelot Mon 30-Jan-17 22:36:21

I notice things every week when I'm doing my online shop at Asda. The thing that sticks in my mind is the 500g box of grapes. Used to be £1.50, then £1.75 and now £1.95.

puglife15 Mon 30-Jan-17 22:37:33

My favourite chocolate has gone up by about 10-15% depending on the shop.

Bus fares here have gone up about 12%

Almond butter is extortionate, gone up about 25%

Some clothes seem slightly more expensive, I'm sure H&M's children's clothes have generally risen by about 10%

Nothing really , I don't track the price of food items though.
