  • According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, an average household earning $63,563 gross spends $1,874 on apparel/services and $5,129 on "other" ($7,003 total.) Assuming that $3,500 (half) is for goods that can be replaced, a household can save at least $1,750 to $3,500 by reusing and recycling (50 to 100 percent).
