    I stopped having milk in my drinks a couple of years ago to lose weight, I think I lost about an ounce! 

    I have an occasional cheese and pickle sandwich though and I miss my cornflakes a lot. 

    All these rises are no joke though. Serious stuff.

    I have milk in tea, coffee, cereal sometimes. I think it might be a case of shopping around.

    I've also noticed the price of my usual products rising. It's certainly worrying, as it all adds up!

    I've been around for some time now. But I can't think of a time when the price of so many things went up at the same time, especially by so much. It will hurt everyone in many different ways. I feel sorry for those that are already struggling.
    It seems we are going back in time. This is not what I expected in the 21st century.

    It is a lot of things going up at the same time and by so much isn't it! I agree though, milk is not something I am willing to sacrifice. I need it for my tea and my daily sanity refuel. Plus, it would be more expensive if I brought tea out every day compared to if I brought some milk and made it at home  :D
