Calculator of household expenses

Have you ever found yourself at the end of the month wondering what happened to your salary? Well, you are definitely not the only one; every month we set up goals on where we are going to spend our money and decide where to cut down but sometimes we don’t realize how much we spend in daily activities where simple life changes could save us a ton of money.


At CUPONATION we wanted to finally answer the question: where does our money go? So we created this interactive infographic where you can see how much a Singaporean spends per day in various items such as weekend getaways to Hong Kong or Malaysia, shopping at Marina square or dinner at L'atelier De Joel Robuchon. You might be surprised to find out that we spend on average 16.66 SGD per day only on domestic help or 40.6 SGD on staying up to date with the latest trends. Also, did you know we spend, on average, 3.02 SGD on petrol per day while on cabs we only spend 1.96 SGD per day. The data covered was extracted from various global expat websites; sources that provide details about the cost of life in each country. In most cases, total consumption per year was shown in the sources, so in order to calculate it per capita per day, the total number was divided to the population and to 365 (days per year). In cases where consumption was shown per household, the total number was divided to the average number of people per household, and  then again to 365 to get the daily number.Many elements are shown by unit such as Coffee (cups), Beer (liters) and Electricity (Kwh), while others strictly in monetary funds. This was done to avoid complexity issues in some elements; Expenses would be clearer to the user this way. Please be advised that numbers may vary between sources. Each one uses its own research method that can provide slight differences.
