6 Frugal Habits Of The Super Rich

What would your weekly supermarket run look like if you had a billion in the bank? For oil magnate T. Boone Pickens, grocery shopping is less extravagant than you might expect: composing a strict shopping list and taking no more cash with him than the list dictates.

Of course, what he writes on that list may well be astonishingly expensive, but the point is that Boone – like many others among the rich and famous – does not use his infinite chequebook as a license to splurge. – These people are FRUGAL!

You Don’t Need That – My Minimalist Room

If you don’t need it don’t buy it. Minimalism isn’t a sacrifice it’s a joy. It’s a mindset that will make your life less cluttered. It’s a lifestyle that will bring you peace of mind from simplicity.

Just think about it…. Would you want to clean a room that has stuff packed in the closet and all over the floor? Or would you want to put three or four things away?

Material things don’t bring happiness. If you are always trying to fill the hole with stuff, eventually you will run out of room.

Be smart with your all mighty dollar.

If you don’t use it, sell it. Trade it. Give it away.

There is peace and love in simplicity.


I am a simple living creature that finds joy in things that money doesn’t typically buy. I have been called a “frugal minimalist”. How about you? This is my top ten list of things that I do not buy or just simply stopped spending money or time on. Enjoy!

Join me on my journey as I enjoy the benefits of living in financial freedom and come along to learn how I did it:)
