They say money can’t buy happiness, but most of us would at least give it our best shot. Surprisingly, some millionaires and billionaires can be incredibly frugal, like these 10 cases:
1. John F. Kennedy – American President
Before he became America’s youngest president, Kennedy was the son of wealthy businessman Joseph Kennedy, and inherited a trust fund worth millions. But Kennedy was a notorious penny-pincher, and his favorite money-saving trick of all was to “forget” his wallet at home.
JFK’s friends, employees, and even his dates all picked up the tab for him, and as President he made a point of cutting the White House’s grocery bill. He even argued with Jackie about how much she spent on her iconic wardrobe.
