Discretionary spend-o-meter alert: Bundle’s latest report goes deep into which cities, age groups and households spend the most on travel, cable and entertainment. I personally love this topic — it’s what sets apart the gamers from the sunbathers.

The overall big spender? Arlington, Va., is the No. 1 travel & leisure-ist city in the U.S. (Avg. household there spent $5,615 in 2009.)

More beautiful charts here: Cable spending and Entertainment spending. Much love to Chris Pace and Janet Paskin for their gorgeous work.

Major high-fives and thank-yous to Nicholas Felton for creating this. 

And a fun factoid from Janet Paskin, who wonders whether we can actually cut back on auto spending:

The average household spent $5,477 on gas and auto expenses last year, according to Bundle data, an amount which accounts for about 14.5 percent of daily spending (not including mortgage/rent). That’s more than we spend on groceries or utilities, and more than we spend on travel, entertainment, clothes and shoes, and hobbies — combined.
