Excluding fuel where have you really noticed this?

My semi regular lunch baguette has gone up from 60p to 70p and I paid 99p for a bag of onions the other day which seemed a bit steep.

Not really to be honest.

Gas and Electric has though, I've noticed that.

Not cost of living per se, but certain things I enjoy blowing my money on (guitars, second hand vinyl, 35mm negative film) have been getting stupidly expensive over the last couple of years.

Morrisons own brand cheesy flavoured corn puffs. Have increased in price from £0.80 to £1.10. Only difference I can see is a quick glance and you would now mistake them for the leading brand.

On a serious note not really noticed it too much. However, i've been on a fixed tariff for Electricity and Gas which runs out this month. I'm sure i'll start to notice it then.

Greggs sausage rolls have increased from £1.00 to £1.05, such an inconvenience to those whole pound holders like myself.

Costa have added 30p to the cost of a medium white Americano. That’s me done, flipping waste of money as it was. Even if you do buy 8, get one free.

I get one free Nero a week from my health insurance. The funny thing is they then give me a loyalty stamp, so I get free coffees on top of my free coffees!

My workday vice is a large Starbuck Americano which goes for £3.50

It amazes me how much some people spend there - especially school and college students.

I have noticed price increases right across the board - in food shopping, in utilities (that has doubled) in clothing etc, etc, and not by 1 or 2p either by much more

The price of Petrol

1.456 per Litre (£5.512 a Gallon)

I can remember paying 1/6d per Gallon.

So a 15 Gallon tank used to cost £1.2s.6p to fill up, now costs £82.68+
