    Household expenditure.

    "I do not spend anything on household expenditure (like electricity bill, water bill, food items etc)." "What do we say to the stock of food that we keep in our house? I do not spend on that as well."

    "I do not do any household chore."

    Please check.

    Re: Household expenditure.

    Before we start on the language, in what context might a person say this? If they spend nothing on food or utilities, how do they survive?

    Do you mean your father does spend money on food and utilities, but you don't?

    Please answer Matthew's question in post #6.
