Interesting Fact - Cost of Living in the UK

According to a study compiled for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, couples with two children  now need just under £40,600 between them to afford a decent lifestyle.

(The biggest problem is, the actual cost of living in the UK has risen five times as much as earnings since before the recession.

So, £40,600 is enough to provide ordinary food, clothes, and leisure activities, for a small family, as well as items judged necessary to survive in modern Britain, without extravagance.)
