A website has figured out in which cities parents are most likely to spoil their kids and Atlanta has made the list.
“During last year’s winter holidays, a survey of 6,000 moms revealed that 3 out of 4 mothers think their kids are at least a little spoiled -– and 60 percent said their own children are more spoiled than they were as kids. Now, Bundle.com, a website that analyzes how people spend their money, has looked further into who is doing all of this spoiling — specifically, where they live.”
“Bundle.com looked at how much households spend at children’s stores in aggregate. Then, they “identified all locations for which they had a reasonable sample size, and determined the average spend by these households over the past three years.” This analysis resulted in two lists — U.S. cities where parents spend above or below the U.S. average and towns that fit the same criteria.”
New York City, Brooklyn and Dallas aren’t big surprises to me. But Miami, Minneapolis and Tulsa are surprises. I know folks in Miami have a lot of money but I didn’t expect them to be that far up – especially not ahead of Los Angeles. And I didn’t know Minneapolis and Tulsa has a lot of money. I am also surprised that L.A. shows up so late in the list.
Are you surprised that Atlanta is on the list? Would you have expected it to be higher or lower?
