Good question. I pinch pennies, drive a paid for two older cars, have zero debt, and eat at McD's. I do my own hair (saving minimally $200 per six weeks) and deposit checks even if they're as low as $0.50. Thank you Dave Ramsey.

How's that?

The 'bots and their human handlers are more devious than you can imagine. Your data are already sold/rented, now they just want regular updates.

Good for you. I pick up change in the Walmart parking lot, drive a 15 year old car, my wife has the newer one, and this week end used a coupon at McD's for breakfast before we went on a 5K charity run. My wife enjoys looking at Goodwill for our yard work clothes. We frequent used book stores, garage, and estate sales. We bring our lunch to work. I wash my own car, mow my own grass, and clean our own house. We have money but that is not what makes us happy. BTW, I enjoy listening to Dave also.

To the person who does not like rich people: Well, Bless your heart. There is a lot of people that I do not like and avoid, but I don't make up my mind regarding that by looking at their net worth.

Not rich but I buy good quality coffee and tea. I don't spend a lot on food but do try to buy organic and other better quality food. Go to England every few years.

But I always pick up loose change in the parking lot, I fly coach, stay at quaint low priced old fashioned hotels, drive a 2005 car, buy most clothes on ebay.

No matter if you're rich or poor, it's all a matter of priorities.

Rich? I am not sure what you mean by rich. It's all relative. On one trip to to India I was showing my driver some pictures of my family, my home, my car, etc. ... and he said to me "you are the richest person I ever met."


Not rich, but surely "upper middle class" ... I am a single guy who owns a six bedroom three story Victorian home (c.1895) in one of the best neighborhoods of my city. Typically homes in this neighborhood go for between $400,000 - $800,000, but there are several larger ones that fetch over $1 million. I furnished the house over the years with antiques, original oil paintings, crystal chandeliers, etc.
