According to doxo's 2021 United States of Bill Pay Report, the average American household spends about $ 22 per year, or about $ 666, per month on their household expenses, which is about 1% per annum.

The 10 most common home accounts, including:

  • Mortgage
  • Rent
  • Car loans
  • Utilities (electricity, gas, water and sewerage)
  • Auto Insurance
  • Cable TV, internet and telephone
  • Health insurance
  • Мобильный телефон
  • Alarm and security
  • Life insurance

Nationally, the average amount spent on household expenses varies greatly from state to state. Hawaiians pay the highest amount - an average of $ 2 per month. This is 731% higher than the national average. New Jersey and California rank second and third in the state rankings, respectively.

Meanwhile, residents of Arkansas, Mississippi, Indiana, New Mexico, and West Virginia are getting more affordable bill payment rates. Households in West Virginia spend an average of $ 1 on monthly bills, the lowest in the country.

“When it comes to differences in household spending across states, the four biggest drivers — mortgages, rent, utilities and auto loans — are the main drivers,” said Jim Craienhagen, vice president of marketing and consumer services at doxo.

Those total costs in Hawaii are double that of West Virginia, Craienhagen said.

Housing in particular is the driving force behind volatility. “That is, the more expensive the housing, the higher the other bills,” Kreienhagen explains, although he notes that there are exceptions. For example, in Wyoming, housing costs are high, but other costs are relatively small.
