5 Celebrities Who Don’t Splurge and Live a Simple Life

Business tycoons and celebrities are often associated with private yachts, jets, stately mansions, and rare sports cars. After all, some of them spend millions on monthly expenses and investments.

However, some are still intent on living frugally despite earning millions. Whatever reasons these thrifty stars may have, they are sure to make their wealth last for generations.

From pop stars to professional athletes, here are five celebrities who still live on a budget.

Rob Gronkowski

Robert Gronkowski or Gronk is one of the best American football tight ends in history. He earned a degree of exceptional popularity playing for the New England Patriots for nine seasons. Currently, he plays tight end for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

As a vital blocker and receiver, he has won four Super Bowl Championships and is highly regarded as one of the NFL’s most popular players.

That being said, Gronk has an estimated net worth of $40 million. However, despite earning millions with his professional football career, he shared in his book, It’s Good to Be Gronk, that he has never touched his NFL contract money or signing bonus.

The Buccaneer tight end added that he lives off his marketing money and hasn’t spent any investments on expensive jewelry, tattoos, or cars. In fact, he said he was still wearing his favorite jeans from his high school years.

Ed Sheeran

The recent decade has been more than profitable for musician Ed Sheeran. He released his debut album back in 2011 and has been one of the industry’s biggest pop stars. He has also sold more than 150 million records worldwide.

The singer-songwriter even earned several Grammy Awards and is amongst the biggest pop stars of the recent decade. Even though he is ranked at the top 100 wealthiest singers globally, he is known to be thrifty.

To Sheeran’s credit, he still gives himself an allowance. He shared with the Irish Examiner that he still uses his Barclays student account so that he won’t have all his money in one account. The singer added that he’d probably spend all his money if he had them all in one account.

The Shape of You singer also famously crashes at other celebrities’ houses. In 2014, he was reportedly staying at Courtney Cox’s spare room.

Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett is one of the richest tycoons in the world. His investments have earned him an estimated net worth of $117.4 billion, while he has been known as the largest shareholder and Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway since 1970.

Despite being a billionaire, Buffett is famous for his adherence to value investing and personal frugality. He lives in a modest house that he purchased way back in 1935 for only $35,000. This is a stark difference in comparison to his fellow billionaires.

Kristen Bell

Kristine Bell has starred in several blockbusters throughout her career. She rose to fame when she played the lead role in the series Veronica Mars. Her films include Forgetting Sarah Marshall, You Again, and Bad Moms. In addition, she is a talented voice actress, being part of Frozen and Ralph Breaks the Internet cast.

Despite earning millions in Hollywood, Bell shared in an interview with Conan O’Brien that she almost exclusively shops with coupons. One of her favorites is the Bed Bath and Beyond coupon because the shop has a 20% off.

Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood earned a degree of international popularity, winning the fourth season of the reality singing contest American Idol. Since then, she has won several Grammy Awards and has sold over 60 million records.

During her guest appearance on Rachel Ray Every Day, the country singer shared that she still clips coupons, does her own grocery, and makes all her meals. In the rare chance that she splurges for her lunch, she buys a sandwich from Subway.
