Mobile phone services – read calls – have also become 7.1% cheaper. “The time when calling your aunt in Australia costs 5 guilders a minute is far from us. We now use WhatsApp, FaceTime and Skype,” says the CBS economist.
In addition, call minutes have also become cheaper. “Because the mutual competition is so great.” The price of headphones and e-readers fell by 7%. “Same goes for TVs, they just get cheaper over the years.”
The seventh place is with a decrease in the price of 5.5% for tablecloths, napkins, towels and washcloths. “This may have to do with savings campaigns, which are pushing prices down.” The price of computers and software fell by 4%. These prices have been falling for years.
The price of children’s shoes fell 3.1%. Upholstery and curtain fabrics closed the top ten with a drop of just under 3 percent. “In both cases it is conjecture about the cause,” concludes Van Mulligen. But these things got cheaper.
