We do have increased cost of living expenses for food, insurances (health, home and contents, cars, income) and registrations, power. We are managing okay and paying what we need to for these essential services and we don't have unnecessary services or expenses. I'd suggest people compare policies and premiums and shop around if possible for an alternative supplier and get rid of unnecessary subscriptions, fees etc. Refinancing a mortgage or changing bank accounts or superannuation for lower fees and better returns may be worth considering.
