Billionaire Bill Gates uses popular watches
Bill Gates is the boss of the Microsoft empire, one of the richest people in the world during the past decade. The tech tycoon’s estimated net worth in July 2020 is $ 111 billion 800 million. With this money, Bill Gates would have been able to enjoy life “whatever you want”. But Bill Gates dedicates most of his fortune to charities instead of buying luxury items.
This billionaire always advocates for a reasonable shopping, reviews and analysis of the value of items and compares the brands carefully before buying something. At the same time, to use effectively what you have rather than swing your hand for fancy things but not much value.
The most prominent example of this billionaire’s frugality is that even though he owns hundreds of billions of dollars, he still believes in a Casio watch that costs only about 70 USD (1.6 million VND).
Billionaire Warren Buffett never spends more than $ 4 on breakfast
Many people believe that billionaires often have breakfast combined with lunch at the most luxurious restaurants with premium dishes. Or they even hire their own chef to order whatever dish they want at any time. However, this is completely not the case with Buffett. His daily life has no concept of spending money on expensive food.
According to CNBC, he usually starts the day with a meal at a fast food restaurant McDonald’s on his way to work.
For more than 50 years, legendary investor Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, has been said to have a single breakfast, and his meals never cost more. 4 USD.
Accordingly, on days when the market rallies, he will spend $ 3.89 for an egg cheese sandwich with bacon. On days when the market is gloomy, he will only buy cheese egg sandwich with sauce for $ 3.19. On really bad days, the billionaire bought just two sausages for $ 2.38 and drank with Coca Cola.
In addition, Mr. Buffett has lived in a single house since 1958.
While most executives, billionaires own million-dollar cars, Warren Buffett drives much more modest cars.
In a BBC documentary, his daughter, Susie Buffett, says her father often buys cars that he gets discounts on, such as those damaged by hail. These vehicles were repaired so that they did not appear damaged and became a part of his daily life.
Billionaire Mark Zuckerberg is simple with simple T-shirts and jeans
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is still quite young compared to other billionaire banyan trees. But the amount of money this young billionaire earns is not inferior, when in July 2020, despite the chaos, Mark still pocketed a fortune of 88.2 billion dollars. Forbes currently lists Mark as the fourth richest billionaire in the world, above Warren Buffet.
However, not so that Mark has a liberal lifestyle or is only used for flashy things. The young billionaire often appears simply with simple T-shirts, jeans and drives a popular car.
Mark once surprised the public when he and his wife went to Costco, a chain of cheap supermarkets in the US to hunt for discount TVs. This is enough to show that Facebook boss is not wasting money on luxury things.
Billionaire Michael Bloomberg wears a pair of shoes forever
The former mayor of New York City and the ninth richest person in the world, billionaire Michael Bloomberg, is said to have used only two black shoes to go to work for more than a decade.

The man born in 1987 was arrested by police.
