How have you been affected by rising prices in the UK?
The BBC will be looking at the impact of rising prices on people's lives in the UK on Tuesday 18 January.
We want to hear from you about how the VAT rate rise from 17.5% to 20% has affected you and your family.
Has your wallet been hit hard by the price rise of petrol? To save money do you now walk to work instead of driving?
Have you had to budget more efficiently to ensure you can afford the weekly food shop or thinking of buying second hand items instead of new ones?
Are you keeping up with your mortgage interests payments or have you had to dip into savings? Or perhaps you planned for the rise of VAT and have some suggestions on how to beat soaring costs?
Thank you for your comments. You can read some of your stories here.
