Our comprehensive survey looks at a series of topics, including whether you are worse off financially than a year ago or cutting back on shopping and using your car?

We also want to know whether you are considering taking a second job or selling possessions to make ends meet. 

We've had dozens of responses so far, and will be compiling the results for a story on how the cost of living is affecting local people.
