If you live in Arlington, congratulations, you live among the most prolific spenders in the country. Personal finance web site Bundle.com has compiled a list of the most spend-thrift cities in the U.S., and Arlington (which is technically a county, but we’ll let it slide this time) ranked fourth, behind Austin, Scottsdale and San Jose. The District placed 11th.
Arlingtonians, on average, spent $56,746 on average household expenses (not including mortgages or rent) in 2009, according to Bundle. That’s $7,315 more than D.C., and $40,300 more than Detroit, the most thrifty city in the country.
