We always think that rich people get their fortune from multi-million companies, investments or their craft, but it is simply brash to generalize. There are well-known affluent personalities whose wealth ballooned through the help of being frugal.
Having tons of money doesn’t mean you need to spend it in one go – in fact, most, if not all, financial advisers suggest limiting your expenses and spending less no matter how much your income is. Take a hint from these rich bunch who proved that being wealthy doesn’t mean they can’t and won’t shop at bargain shops:
The Toxic hitmaker may be worth $59 million, but that doesn’t mean she would hide her love for Target – and yes, she loves the place because as per court documents, she visited the shop 80 times in 2018 alone. This information was released as part of her conservatorship requirement.
The former Destiny’s Child member may be busy designing clothes for her line with Adidas right now but who can forget how people went wild when she shopped at Target wearing an eye-popping orange jumpsuit last year? Yup, Beyonce, who has an estimated net worth of $400 million, is just like any of us who love bargains.
As per the photos that circulated, the songstress was at the diaper aisle, so perhaps she was shopping for baby items for Rumi and Sir. While the appearance surprised shoppers, this was not the first time Queen Bey went to a Target – in 2017, she bought stuff at the San Clemente branch with mom Tina Knowles and daughter Blue Ivy in tow.
Even the members of the reality TV family can’t escape the black hole that is a bargain store. Kylie Jenner, long before she was regarded as the youngest self-made billionaire, was spotted shopping at a Costco in 2014. Along with big sis Khloe Kardashian, the two, who sported matching clothes, bought house staples like toilet paper.
It’s not just the two who adore Costco, even the matriarch, momager Kris Jenner, is a fan, even referring to herself as a bulk girl.
Prince Harry, Kate Middleton
The royal family may have always come under fire for their lavish lifestyle that usually is carried by the taxpayers, but some of them have a frugal side. Prince Harry, who is worth $25 million, was seen visiting a TK Maxx, an off-price retailer, and coming out of the store with a bag of clothes in 2013.
Kate Middleton, who has been lauded for affordable outfit choices, is also a huge fan of the store, as per an insider, who claimed that the Duchess loves mixing designer pieces with bargains.
