We would like to hear your experiences of “skimpflation” – a term used to describe when companies skimp on the quality of their products and services to save money instead of putting up prices. This can result in a worse experience, such as a long delay, a bad journey, or a poorer quality product.

For example, does something you buy regularly still cost the same but now seems to be made out of cheaper materials or ingredients? Have you noticed changes in local cafes or restaurants? What was your experience when you went on holiday? Did you get the service you expected? Were you charged for things that used to be free?
