The average British family now needs to bring home £27,373.20 a year just to break even – a 10 per cent rise on last year, a survey revealed yesterday. Researchers found the typical household is now paying £2,571.69 more for basics such as mortgage or rent payments, utilities, food, insurance, loans and motoring. The biggest cost is the weekly food shop, which now sets us back £5,077.28 a year – an increase of £586.04 or 13 per cent since last year, up by almost £100 per week.
