There is talk about deflation, but in your daily life and shopping trips can you actually feel you are spending less money on necessities than previously ? Could you venture a percentage compared to, let's say, a year ago?

deflation is in the bank where I use to get 5% now 3% :(

No noticeable deflation but also only a few price increases over the past couple of years. A basket of groceries is still cheap.

But is it cheaper than say a year, two years ago?

No difference, but I do notice more special offers in supermarkets whatever that indicates.

I'd say a little cheaper, but that's just a feeling. Someone who buys the same basket of groceries every week would have a better idea. There are more temptations in terms of what used to be seen as luxury items, but as Jon says (and perhaps because of greater choice), there is more discounted stuff on offer. I am happy to report that the prices of essentials like wine and beer are steady. Prices at the pump have also stabilised, and LPG is really cheap now (under 2 PLN the last time I noticed). Perhaps I'm wrong, but the cost of good shoes and clothes seems to have risen.
