Garland continues to stack up as a wise investment, as it was ranked No. 3 in the country in financial services website GOBankingRates’ recent list of “The 20 Best Places to Live If You’re Trying to Save Money.”

The study looked at incomes and costs of living in more than 100 American cities. Costs of housing, food and transportation were factored into the rankings.

Not only is Garland third overall, it has the largest median household income among the top 11 cities on the list.

“The city is also tied for the second-lowest local transportation costs,” GOBankingRates said of Garland, “which allows residents to save even more of their incomes.”

The list was published Aug. 27, then repurposed by the Business Insider site two days later as “The 17 Best U.S. Cities to Live a Nice Life and Still Save Money, Ranked.”

“For a small town feel just outside of Dallas, Garland, Texas, is a good option for savers,” Business Insider wrote.
