A couple of weeks ago, we had a chance to sit down with a couple of guys at a hardware store and talk about the best, and worst, things in your home.
We had a lot of questions about the state of the modern kitchen, but none of them were as compelling as this one: how much money are you spending on appliances?
In the course of a few months, we spent almost $1,500 on kitchen appliances, according to data from the Federal Trade Commission.
That’s a pretty big chunk of money—almost a third of our budget—but, of course, most of us aren’t spending this much on appliances.
The majority of us are probably spending less than half of that on appliances, and that’s because most of our home appliances are used regularly.
So, in some cases, we actually don’t spend much on them at all.
But how much do we spend on appliances in the first place?
Is it really worth it to spend so much on an appliance?
Let’s break down the data and see what we can find out.
Here’s the chart from the FTC, which includes the spending on new appliances from January 2015 through June of this year.
It shows how much of your budget goes into the new appliances.
The number one appliance category is dishwasher, which has been the number one category of spending on the average American household for years.
In fact, that’s the category where the most of your spending is going.
That is, nearly half of the spending for new appliances is on dishwashers, with the remaining half going to washing machines, ovens, and other basic appliances.
It’s a fairly clear pattern, and it’s a trend that will continue.
Most of the other categories include electric or hybrid vehicles, but not nearly as much as the dishwasher.
In the US, electric vehicles account for about half of all new vehicles sold.
There are plenty of other vehicles in the mix as well, but that’s just the beginning of it.
The other big category in the chart is microwave ovens.
In that category, the number of new microwave oven models sold has been fairly steady over the last few years, with a big bump up from the previous year.
However, it’s not as if these models are replacing traditional models, as new models are still coming out regularly.
The only new microwave models we have seen in the last couple of years are the newer Model B and Model C models.
The top three appliances in this category are dishwasher, microwave oven, and dishwasher combo.
That makes sense given the overall trend of spending increasing on appliances over the past few years.
there are some other interesting trends that we found, too.
The next biggest category is electric car, which is the third most important category.
While the percentage of new electric vehicles in America is on the rise, the percentage that are new electric cars is actually very low, with just about half going into the market in 2017.
That means most of the cars we are buying in 2017 were purchased years ago.
This trend is likely to continue as more and more people choose electric vehicles.
While the number two appliance category in this chart is ovens and cooktops, the other two are dishwashing and vacuum cleaners.
This is not surprising given the fact that most of those things are still being manufactured in factories.
This means they’re not being replaced as frequently as they should be.
And, of the vacuum cleaners, the Model S is the most popular, with almost half of households owning one of these models.
There are also a few appliances that are not new at all, but are going up in price.
A couple weeks ago we reported on the top three most expensive appliances in America: the KitchenAid Mixer and a Samsung DLP-E200-series blender.
The price of these appliances is up significantly over the year before, and they are currently on the high end of the price spectrum.
We’re not saying that these appliances are going to be affordable by the end of this decade, but we think they will likely be in the $1K to $2K range.
A couple of other interesting categories include home theater systems, video games, and audio equipment.
It looks like there is some overlap between these categories.
The last category is electrical appliances.
These include televisions, radios, video cameras, video game consoles, and the like.
While most of these things are getting more expensive, there are still some of these devices that are going for under $100.
It is possible that the price of this category will drop as people transition to the next generation of smart devices, but it’s hard to say for sure.
The top three products on this list are TVs, radios and video game controllers.
These are probably the most expensive items in this group, so if you want a TV, you might want to consider buying one of the older models.
