Unfortunately I haven’t bought any of these items in the last 12 months and have no intention of doing so – I have bought a fair bit of food and fuel though!
With the cost of bread now above £1 a loaf and petrol at £1.12 a litre, there seems no end to rising living costs. Just this week, the Consumer Prices Index, the Government’s preferred measure of inflation, shot up to 3 per cent. But there is some good news for shoppers. Believe it or not, the price of many goods is actually falling, and by quite large amounts. Below we outline the price of ten items that have fallen the most on average over the past year and give an example of each product.
