Here are all the things Brexit is about to make pricier

Before the EU referendum, experts estimated that Brexit could leave the average Briton £580 worse off. But being a nation sick of experts, at least 52 per cent of us thought "Nope, we know best" and carried on our merry way. 

And now we're here. News of price hikes abound as the humble British pound continues to crumble, and thus the cost of importing stuff continues to rise. It will take a few months for you to really see these changes in the shops, but unless the pound gets bitten by a radioactive spider and gains super powers, rest assured these changes are coming. 

If you like little things like say holidays, laptops, and oh, we don't know, food, then oh boy, do we have some news for you.
