Tell us: how is the cost of living crisis affecting your social life?

The rising cost of living has led Britons to cut back on eating out, while pubs have described struggling to break even as customers visit their local less often.

Meanwhile, soaring fuel prices mean that for those living in some parts of the country, the cost of regularly visiting family and friends has become prohibitive. Nearly two-thirds of motorists either drove less during July, or reduced their spending in other areas, according to the AA.

We’d like to hear from people in the UK about how the cost of living crisis is affecting their social lives and wellbeing. Have you cut back on regularly seeing family, friends, or going to the pub and eating out? If not, are you making savings in other areas to maintain your social life? Have you changed aspects of the way you socialise to keep costs down?
