Inflation rose to 7% in March, mainly caused by price rises for motor fuels – both petrol and diesel reached their highest prices on record last month.

Food prices and non-alcoholic beverages are also up, rising by 5.9%. With so many challenges affecting transport, food and drink, will you be changing your Easter bank holiday plans this year to save money?

Easter social plans and traditions

In my family, a normal Easter is a chance for some down time together. My partner is the main buyer of all things chocolate in our household – we’ve stocked up on a few Easter eggs and novelties for our little one to enjoy an egg hunt in the garden.

We usually cook a traditional roast dinner and sometimes, weather-permitting, attempt to get the barbecue out over the bank holiday weekend.

But with the cost of everything going up, we’ve been looking for ways to save on the essentials.
