How much electricity does YOUR house use a month?

Every house will be different. If you have a 100 Watt light bulb lit all day you would use 2400 watt hours in a day. You can find out by looking at your electric meter at the start of a day and write down the values on the meter. Then read the meter again at the same time the next day and subtract. To get an average value, look at your electric bill for the month and divide by the number of days in the billing period. You will then know the average amount per day.
