WE'RE all concerned about the cost of energy rising again in October.

The price cap currently stands at £1,971 and impacts 24 million customers.
But one money-saving mum has a tip for those concerned about how they will heat up their homes during the winter month.
Taking to TikTok, the Duchess of Thrift shared the number one item you should buy now to help keep costs down.
She said: "You really need to start preparing now for when the energy prices shot up in October and the temperature drops."
The money-saving mum recommends buying an electric blanket before the price goes up during the winter to help save money.
"There's going to be high demand, people are not going to be able to put their heating on," she adds.
"Make sure you get them now because demand will drive the prices up on these things, I guarantee you."
Buying straight from the store can still be expensive, she revealed, as one retailer sells them for £99.Most read in LifestyleBUZZ OFF I was tired of flies coming into my house, but I discovered a hack to repel themREAL DEAL I'm an Aldi fan - I buy weekly groceries for under $26 by sticking to 13 itemsSTORE SECRETS Walmart knows you're stealing at self checkout & it's not because of camerasFASHION BIBLE I’m a fashion expert - 4 rules to follow so you don't look older than you are
However, the mum said you can find the exact same item on eBay for just £12.99.
"Buy your heated blankets now, the prices are really, really low," she explains.
The mum revealed that it costs around 4p an hour to charge - much cheaper than trying to heat your house up.
