The purpose of this study was to get a picture of the level of welfare of the slum areas of Bandung through its consumption spending patterns. The study was conducted in Babakan Surabaya in the District of Kiara Condong. Babakan Surabaya is one of the villages in the District of Kiara Condong and is a densely populated area. Most residents occupy houses whose buildings are prone to fire, not far from each other, lack of quality waste disposal facilities, drainage, and existing clean water networks. This condition shows that this area is included in the slum area. So that low income people tend to choose to live in this region. Our Observation show that the people can buy luxury goods such as hand phone. Babakan Surabaya, which is located close to a shopping centre, makes it easy for people to do their consumption expenses and follow the consumption patterns of higher-income people. According to Samuelson, consumption patterns are also influenced by environmental factors. Household consumption patterns are one indicator of household / family welfare. It is therefore important to discuss how people’s consumption patterns in Babakan Surabaya describe their level of welfare. This study uses a quantitative descriptive research method using the Lingkert Scale in its measurement. The Lingkert scale is used because it can assess a problem based on the opinions / perceptions of respondents who are then given a score. The results of the study showed that the people of Babakan Village in Surabaya had a low level of welfare. This condition is based on consumption patterns where the biggest allocation of income is to buy food, such as rice and vegetables. Purchase of durable goods is only to replace the old one and generally buy not in cash but in instalments. For education and health, they still use government facilities so spending on education and health is still low. While the amount of savings is very small and not fixed. They also do not specifically allocate their income to recreation and even use their free time to work to increase their income. Purchasing some luxury goods does not reflect a better level of welfare. But it shows the process of demonstration effect because of its location in the city centre.
