milwaukee art museumMilwaukeeans are known for their frugality and love of a good deal, but are we the most frugal city in America?

Not by a longshot, according to a recent survey. has named Atlanta as the “Most Frugal U.S. City” for the fourth straight year in a row.  Surprisingly, our beloved Milwaukee ranks as the 20th Most Frugal U.S. City.  However, the Midwest dominates the list with more than twice the number of cities of any other region.

The way determines the rankings is by looking at each greater metro area’s total issued coupon savings on relative to its population size.  So, this ranking really doesn’t determine which city is the most frugal - it really is just a measure of which city uses the most.  For example, if you do most of your grocery shopping at Aldi, you are probably a frugal person but you aren’t using since Aldi doesn’t accept coupons.

The top 10 cities on the list are:

  1. Atlanta
  2. Orlando
  3. Tampa
  4. Nashville
  5. Charlotte
  6. Kansas City
  7. Boston
  8. Cleveland
  9. Sacramento
  10. St. Louis
