Most Frugal Cities

Here is a little morning trivia for you. What cities in the U.S. do you think are the most frugal?
Hint: During a time of economic recession, most folks go into “save” mode. Some find it hard to change their ways. Yet, most Sustainos are already “natural savers” as they often consume less and conserve more through a variety of ways (e.g. growing your own veges vs. paying an arm and a leg at the grocery store).

Answers (top 5):
1. Brooklyn, NY
2. San Diego, CA
3. Portland, OR
4. Miami, FL
5. Indianapolis, IL
