Cost of living is going up here.

August 5th, 2013 at 01:11 am

With each bill rising, some by $36.67 per month, I think I will need to add an extra amount on to annual bill money and find saving elsewhere. That can only be from my daily living allowance area. By how much I will have to wait and see but it s over $700 for the year so far!

My last water bill was $148.25 but my water usage per was $4.80 for the quarter or 17 KL of water, not a lot by any standard, on this bill you have sewage charges too! Power has gone up by 22% on the last year. I have some solar panels so my cost are less than the norm but it will go up somewhat too! The list goes on so I will budget for around $1000 extra and put aside any extra for next year s hikes.

Today I had a senior coffee for free and penny pitcher Carmel Sundae for $1.20 at full price these would have cost about $6.40 for both, I ended up paying only $1.20 for the Sundae.

    Kitty, everything is going up here in my neck of the woods. It seems that everyone wants your money.

    We've also seen huge increases in food costs and anything transportation related like gas for car or flights. Airlines added $50. to check a bag and charge for meals that were free last year. Does anyone know the added fee for security? A lot of cars have new features that seems to be sending purchasers to new vehicles. Low interest rates and demand has increased the price of some brands.
