From Accidental FIRE …
I go to Trader Joe’s or Aldi about every two weeks, and usually spend about $100. But as the Tax Foundation’s recent report of the value of $100 in each state shows, I’m not getting as many groceries as millions of Americans in other states.
Color me annoyed, but I live near Washington D.C. and I guess this should come as no surprise to me.
The data come from the Bureau of Economic Analysis and have been published for three years now. The value for each state is in comparison to the national average.
