I'm sure there are going to be more sophisticated answers, but get a better router would be mine. I have a nicer Asus router, and it shows bandwidth used, and you can sort info by device (so you can see what device is using the most) and you can sort it by generalized web-traffic (ie: hulu, netflix, internet browsing, etc), so you can see what services are using the most bandwidth. I'm sure some of the nicer routers will give you similar info.
It's not super in-depth like some dedicated monitoring/analysis tool is, but when I had the same problem, I was able to see that I was burning up 10's of GB of Netflix, as it was the elephant in the room bandwidth wise. I went to the site, and told it to lower it's quality to the next lower tier, and checked back after a few days and the usage amount was more inline. I think it was sending me high bitrate feed since my internet speed was so good, but it was causing a problem with the cap.
I also was able to pinpoint a specific computer that was using more bandwidth than made sense. I believe the online backup was stuck in a loop and causing it to run constantly for a period of time. Rebooted the machine, and the usage went down to normal.
A movie will probably average around 4GB; HD, don't know.
10 or 15 "half-watched" movies, combined with the rest, and there goes your quota. Then there's browser versus an "app" watching movies. I'm convinced the browsers are way too busy, even when not navigating. Just idling, they use more resources than Visual Studio.

Don't worry, I will eat your share for you. I'm just nice like that.
Although, how can you not like pancakes? The beauty of them is that you get to make them taste however you want by choosing your own filling! There must be something you like that they could be filled with?! BACON!!! for example?
