I've grown less adventurous and more cautious in what I pay for things. Not so many outings and activities with the children, less takeaway food, not so many evenings out with a meal and tips. Not much fun, a resident in Kristianstad tells us.

We've taken a closer look at how expenses have gone up in 2018, 2021 and 2023, to get a better picture of how people in Kristianstad have been affected by inflation.


Because of delays in the accounting of incomes and pensions it is impossible to show exactly what effect the rise in prices has, but one thing is clear, people in Kristianstad feel how things are developing.

It is shown in a questionnaire that Kb/NSk's readers answered during week 19 .
