Have you ever wondered if what you spend on food is higher than the average family? And what about how much you spend on housing, clothing, or entertainment?

The Bureau of Labor Statistics annually reports the spending habits of consumers in the US. Most of the answers from this quiz were taken from this report. So, if you are curious about how much you spend compared to the national average take the quiz. (All the answer choices are approximations)
