Raleigh makes the Top 20 Frugal Cities list!

Posted January 20, 2010

Raleigh has made yet another list of top cities - and it's one of my favorites! The City of Oaks is ranked #11 on the 2009 Top 20 Most Frugal Cities list by  Way to go couponers!

Charlotte also makes an impressive showing at number 7. The South as a whole makes it's mark with more than 1/3 of the cities on the list being in the Southern Region. Seems to me that we know how to save some money!

Atlanta ranked #1 and Tampa came in second.  For the full press release and more details on the rankings, see the link above.

Basically, the rankings come from the number of coupons printed by folks in cities around the country. It doesn't really show how well people are living within their means as a whole, but it is interesting to see that we are definitely saving some big bucks with printable coupons. Keep it up, Raleigh! Let's break the top ten list and shoot for #1 next year!

    You are so welcome, yesnomaybeso (love your username!). I love the printable coupons as well. Many times they are a higher value than the coupons for the same products in the newspaper.

    i do my part in printing from! we have 3 printers (connected to 3 different computers) here at work that sit pretty much untouched. the office has gone almost paperless, but we still have leftover ink cartridges we bought years ago. so i pick up paper cheap (or free) and bring it in. (i still print in draft mode, of course!) :)
