When we think of some of Hollywood’s finest, we imagine them living expensive lifestyles and splurging cash on the latest cars, yachts, and private jets.

That’s why we rarely bat an eye when we hear that one of these celebrities has gone dead broke after living life on the fast lane and milking their accounts dry.

That being said, there are surprisingly some celebrities out there that live frugally despite having millions under their name.

For instance, founder of IKEA Ingvar Kamprad, who passed away in January 2018, lived a relatively modest life despite being in the 1 percent.

Heck, he even rode around town in a 20-year old Volvo, flew coach, and purchased second-hand clothes! That being said, he isn’t the only notable celebrity that lived thriftily and was budget conscious.

Indeed, here’s a list of other celebrities that would rather spare their change for a rainy day!

Despite their celebrity status, some celebrities live a relatively modest lifestyle

Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran is no doubt one of the most revered musicians in the world. Interestingly, despite the massive wealth he has amassed from hit after hit, the musician still prefers to live with an allowance.

In fact, Ed still uses his Barclays student account and has never considered updating it because he doesn’t spend a lot of money.

Additionally, he doesn’t put all his money on one account and prefers to give himself an allowance. When quizzed on how much his monthly expenses were, he responded by saying that they totaled about $1000, with most of it being taken by taxis.

Moreover, Ed is famously known for crashing at people’s places for weeks!

Carrie Underwood

She is truly one of the most iconic musicians of our time, and despite bagging several Grammys, Carrie has stayed true to her origins of budgeting.

Indeed, we would expect a 60 million record-selling artist to do it big, right?

Instead, Underwood still does all her grocery shopping, prepares her meals, and even clips her own coupons!

Kristen Bell

The lead star of Forgetting Sarah Marshall is also another celebrity on the list considered as the coupon queen. Indeed, on an interview with Conan O’Brien, she revealed to him that she almost entirely shops with coupons.

Moreover, her favorite sport for grocery shopping is Bed Bath and Beyond using their coupon.

The likes of Carrie Underwood choose to live on a budget despite their massive wealth

Warren Buffet

He was at one time the wealthiest man on the planet. We’re talking about renowned investor Warren Buffet whose current net worth stands at a staggering $90 billion.

Interestingly, instead of splurging his cash on a gigantic mansion, Warren opts to live in a modest home that he bought in 1958 for $31,500.

Tiffany Haddish

Tiffany Haddish finally became uber-famous and burst onto the scene thanks to her epic role in Girls Trip.

Despite her newfound fame and wealth, she has not changed her lifestyle in any way. Indeed, the actress admitted that she still drives a Honda HR-V hybrid.

Moreover, the last bag she bought herself was a $45 Madden Girl backpack. Ideally, the fact that she was once homeless has motivated her to live with a budget, and she believes she will continue to do so for years to come.

Rob Gronkowski

For many athletes, their careers go synonymous with a flashy lifestyle where they get to flaunt their wealth and their possessions.

Nevertheless, there are a few exceptions to this rule. One of them being Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots.

In fact, in his book It’s Good to Be Gronk, he reveals that he has never used a single cent of his signing bonus ever since he joined the NFL.

As a matter of fact, he states how he only lives off his marketing money and has never blown it on expensive jewelry, cars, or clothes.

Not having a budget can lead to financial constraints in the future

Dave Grohl

As a rockstar famous for his time with the Foo Fighters and Nirvana, we would expect Dave to be splurging his cash on a number of expensive things, right?

Instead, all the money that he earns from shows and endorsements goes straight to his bank account. He also drives a family car and owns a modest home.

Conclusively, it goes to show that just because our celebrities receive fat paychecks, not all of them spend it sans budgeting. Indeed, more money doesn’t always have to necessarily mean more spending.
