Abstract: In the pandemic situation most of the people changed their expenditure patterns. An analysis of this change is very essential for the families to understand their financial situations and what adjustments they needed to make and how they overcome these financial gaps. Hence an attempt was made to analyze the changing expenditure patterns of households in Nizamabad district which is located in Telangana state. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the researcher?s location was selected randomly for convenience of data collection. Exploratory research design was followed for the present study. Total eighty respondent?s data was collected because of pandemic restrictions. Pearson?s correlation coefficient test was run by using SPSS. Results revealed that there is a significant relationship between independent variables like income of the family, size of the family, occupation of the respondents with dependent variable expenditure pattern before pandemic.
