Virginia Ramsey, CEHE How Do Your Spending Habits Compare With "Average' If you're an "average" family, you're probably spending 18 to 20 percent of your annual in- come for food, and from 10 to 20 ,percent for clothing. ',Statistics tell us that the aver- age U. S. family is 3.7 persons, ,which, of course, is impossible," points out Miss Helen Miller, University of Wyoming ~Exten- sion home managemeent special- ist. 'There is no average family just as there is no average ex- pen.diture pattern which fits all families," she continued. It is possible, however, to apply some rules of thumb which will help in managing money, she said. Here are a few of them: 1. If you're buying a home, the amoun.t should not exceed twice your current annual income. 2. Upkeep and household op- erations should not exceed one 'percent of the house's total pur- ~chase .price. 3. Your total debts, including the mortgage should be no more than 20 percent .of your annual take-home pay. 4. No more than eight percent of your annual take-home pay should go for house furnishings. 5. An adequate emergency fund should contain three month's salary or around $1000. 6. It will cost you approximate- ly 10 cents a miIe to operate and keep your family car. If you drive 10,000 miles this year, the cost will be $1,000, including depreciation.
