Remember the new frugality? Apparently not, says new data from Bundle.

A couple other notes on this… from Paskin:

“What we bought varied considerably. New Yorkers spent 11.3 percent more on clothes. In Columbus, spending on cable and satellite services jumped 21.9 percent. Los Angelenos went back to the spa and re-upped their gym memberships, spending 13.5 percent more on personal care. And in Chicago, spending on healthcare rose by 9.7 percent. Across the country, though, the revival was fueled by one group in particular: the wealthiest Americans.”
