This study is planned and executed to examine the effect of a working wife on family expenditure and to clarify the similarities and differences between the working wife families and non-working wife families on this subject. The research has been performed in total 230 families determined by the Stratified Random Sampling Method in a large university in the middle of Turkey. The data were collected by utilising a research form developed by the researcher and administered to working wife (n=156) at the office, to non-working wife (n=74) at the home. Results showed that families who spend on child care, meals away from home and housecleaning services in working wife families are more than in non-working wife families (P<0.05) and as income level increases families who pay for these services increases (P<0.05).
