How much money does the average American spend in their lifetime?
Around $2 700 000 if you work until you die. If you retire at 65 then around $2 025 000. These amounts don't include possible debt and inheritance from friends, family etc. and these amounts assume you spend every penny you make.

In America a Dog could be any price from $250.00 to $2,000.00... but sometimes people post ADs in the newpaper and give them away for no cost
So this is a really rough estimate, but the average amount of money spent by an American household (according to Forbes magazine) is $43,395. The census bureau for 2000 said we have 105,480,101 household in the US. That would equal $4,577,308,982,895 (4.6 trillion) dollars a year total. This number …would probably never hold up to scholarly research, but at least it's a rough number.. Below are the revelant links. On the Forbes pages, click the link that asks you "click here to see how Americans spend their money". http://www.forbes.com/commerce/2006/07/19/spending-income-level_cx_lh_de_0719spending.html. http://www.census.gov/prod/2001pubs/c2kbr01-8.pdf (MORE)
How much money do Americans spend on Movies? well over $10 billion in 2009 ... but how many attend movies?..... an ever declining population in the wake of record ticket prices
I'd reckon an average American would spend around $100.00 a day. There are 2.8 billion people that live on less than $2 a day. Maybethe "average American" that spends $100 a day needs to stop beingso selfish. A sweatshop worker only gets 6 dollars a day, and the averagesweatshop worker has about 5… people in that family, or more, sojust think about that for a sec.... why don't we stand up for theirrights, so they can get some proper food and clothing for once intheir lifetime! The average American can get all they want. I comefrom a very poor family, and imagine what it feels like never tohave any normal life, just envying the people around you who throwand rip up dollars just for fun in school. Imagine. Americans needto cut down on being selfish, thank you for pointing that out,whoever wrote that top part. To the person who wrote this. How are we being selfish if everything in this country costs a lotmore? ADDENDUM: this is probably way inaccurate. For the average Americanto spend $100 a day, the average family of four would have to make$146,000 per year. That is not the average salary. The meanhousehold income is more like $46,000 per year... divide that by3.14 (about the average family size), divide that by 365 days in ayear, and the average spending per day would be closer to $40 perday. ANOTHER VIEW: Here is something to think about... the question is 'How much moneydoes the AVERAGE American spend per day.' The key word here isAVERAGE, also, they are speaking in the singular, 1 person, not theaverage family. So, here is my take on it.... the AVERAGE American makes a littlemore than $46,000 per year. Which translates to about $884 a weekGross income. Which works out to about a $675 Net income per week.Now that works out to about $96 per day. So, we have to assume thatthe AVERAGE American spends less than $96 per day. Obviously, theother person saying $168 per day is way too high. It would be very time consuming to really get an exact answer. Youknow the AVERAGE American can spend up to $96 per day. But youwould also have to consider in how much debt the Average Americanaccumulates per year. You would also have to figure in how much theAverage American puts in a Savings account each year. You wouldalso have to consider how much they invest each year. You wouldalso have to figure in the average number of people in an averagehousehold, this could dramatically cut down the cost of the Averageperson. If the Average household is 3 people, then the mortgage,utilities, would be split between 3 people, which would decreasethe Average amount of money spent per day. If it helps, I tallied up all my monthly bills (rent, utilities,food, gas, spending money, etc.), and averaged it out per day. Icame up with about $64.00 per day I spend to live. Now, if I livedwith someone else and we split the rent and utilities, it would godown to about $47 per day. I would definitely put my lifestyle inthe Average American category. (MORE)
I am currently an electrical engineer. I started working in 1974. I am now 51 years old. If I retire at age 62 I estimate I will earn 40.8 million dollars in my lifetime. ahaha yeah ok so you make a million/year? yeah right. besides, this doesn't help the question in any way, shape, or form. i…f you really do make that much then you are far from an average person, whom the asker was inquiring about. you didn't even bother to mention any statistics or numbers for any widespread demographic so why even post anything at all-just to show off and inflate your internet ego? that being said, from the other sites I've read through there's a general consensus somewhere a little over 2 million in a lifetime without calculating the deduction of taxes. If you've gone to college and obtained a degree you'll make significantly more, assuming favorable circumstances. If you haven't you'll likely come out much lower and balance out the numbers. http://usgovinfo.about.com/library/weekly/aa072602a.htm --- this site had a great breakdown of numbers and facts, if anyone wanted to sate a little deeper curiosity on the subject of earnings and schooling. An average person doesn't earn as much as this person is talking about, he shouldn't have even put this. He is just lying and bragging. I disagree. He is right. I have estimated that by the time I am 65, I would have earned about 70million dollars. I know it sounds great, but one must take off taxes, buying a house and everything else!! Let's put this into perspective! If you worked 50 years of your life and you started when you were 17, averaged $100,000 per year you would have earned $5,000,000 (5 million), and if you were making $150,000 when you retired and your retirement paid you 75% of your ending salary ($150,000x.75=112,500). If you live until you are 85--18 years after you retire--that would give you an additional $2,025,000, just a little over 7 million earned in a life that is not only long but also enjoyed living well above the average income. In short- you could not make $70 million or even $40 million in your lifetime unless you were making 3 million a year for around 20 years--in which case you would not be discussing it here with the rest of us average people. I think I will stick to around $2.5 million! (MORE)

The time on a telephone varies drastically according to technological status and from culture to culture.. From 0 (those without phones - and there still are billions of people who do not have a phone) to probably one tenth of a lifetime (there could be some hundred thousand who attain that level).….

That would depend on how much you smoke; but lets assume you smoke half a pack a day. That's about 183 packs per year. (I'll stick to round numbers) Assuming at this rate you live to the age of 76 (most smokers don't) That's 60 years of smoking 183 packs a year that comes to 10,980 packs of cig…arettes. The amount of money you pay will vary depending on the brand you smoke, and what he prices are in your area. Around here a pack of cigarettes varies from 6 to 12 dollars, depending on the brand and where you buy them; so lets say 10 bucks a pack. That comes to $109,800 assuming that the price of cigarettes stays the same for the entire time, as a rule however cigarette prices have consistently risen over time. (MORE)

i think it's somewhere around 50 000. seriously though, all these crazy canadians care about on Christmas is gifts. I'ts like they've forgotten the real meaning of Christmas, The birth of Jesus Christ
at the least Â£100,0000 The Average Canadian makes $43,000 a year, so I assume that they spend less than what they earn because most smart families save 10% of their income in case something happens.
I'm not sure about everyone else but me and my husband spent around 4550 a year buying two packs a day
its all about when they started smoking but lets just say they start at age 18. they live to age 70. they smoke 1 pack a week. and a pack costs 6 bucks (these numbers can vary) I would say about 16 thousand bucks if my numbers are correct
That depends on their budget but their are promotional items nowadays that you can get under $1.
To answer your question a little more informations would be needed. Would you like to know how much the average person spends on grocery shopping, or how mucy money is spend by the average family.
The average American does not spend money at Starbucks. The average cusomer of Starbucks (which is more like only 1/16th of the American cities population) who can AFFORD to purchase overpriced coffee from that enterprise usually buys about 3-5 Starbucks a week. So if you average $5 each time yo…u are spending $15 to $25 a week on specialty coffee. Many Starbucks customers have stopped buying from Starbucks because of the high cost and they can now get specialty coffee from other venues such as McDonalds, Dutch Brothers and other enterprises for half to one fourth the cost of Starbucks prices. Some rural people, believe it or not, have never even seen or tasted a Starbucks fancy coffee, but some have when they have visited the ciities to stock up on supplies. (MORE)
