I thought it would be interesting to look at our annual household expenses between 2017 and 2018. I wanted to see what changed. Did we spend more? What about less?
I didn’t look at every expense item, but focused on some that stood out. In the end, I picked twelve items that I’ve tracked spending on, and looked at how they stacked up between 2017 and 2018.
Some of the results surprised me. Others I expected.
Increase In Annual Household Expenses
Out of the twelve items I tracked, seven saw an increase in annual household expenses.
Netflix raised their rates from $9.99 to $10.99 so we saw an increase in our costs. Minor, but from a percentage standpoint, it’s at least interesting.
