Internet charges are higher in Spain, white goods and clothes etc more expensive. Wine is cheaper but only the bottom end. If you want to buy a decent bottle of French or Australian eg. then it is usually cheaper in the UK. as is champagne. My gas/electric bills are the same as they were in Spain 2 years ago…and we don’t skimp! You can get a menu del día for around 8€. On the other hand I can get a good carvery here for £5.95 or with pudding £7.
