There was a recent article in the GLOBE AND MAIL about rising costs of household expenses. You may be surprised with some of the findings.
Do you know that food purchased from stores spending was down 1.8% but food purchased from restaurants was up 3.6% from a year ago? Landline telephone services were down almost 6% while cellphone pager and text messaging services were up over 10%. Clothing and accessories were down almost 3%.. is that a result of more competitive pricing with US retailers coming to Canada?
The largest increase was surprisingly in pet expenses … may not reflective in higher food prices but rather additional health care bills as people to improve and extend the life of their dear pets.
This is all good information. It’s really important information to have if you are facing divorce and need to see how you’ll manage once you’re on your own.
