See where we fell on the cheap list.

It’s been a week of impressive rankings for our great city, but recent analysis by Coupons.com, has us scratching our heads: Philadelphia is ranked the 14th most frugal city in America.

On the one hand, that’s awesome! We’re outsmarting the man, one coupon and sale rack bargain at a time. On the other hand, we’re officially a city full of cheapos. With the cost of living in the Philly metro area clocking in at one of the lowest of most coastal cities in America (especially in the Northeast), isn’t it time to stop hoarding our pennies and maybe start splurging a little? It’ll help local businesses and also benefit, well, your closet. (And if you need help with that, well, check this out. And this. And, last one, this.)

Just sayin’.
