ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – With Black Friday just a few days away, which state’s residents have the loosest wallets – Missouri or Illinois?

It’s Missourians by far, according to a new study from the financial website

Missouri is ranked as the state with the sixth biggest spenders, and Illinois is No. 39.

Missouri places in the top 10 for most spending on health care, food and beverages, as well as people spending more than they make. The Show-Me State ranks 25 for number of cars per household, auto and credit card debt and spending on gasoline, housing and utilities.
