A Real Millionaire Next Door

“I don’t buy anything unless I need it,” he said. “And even then I try to find something used. Let other people buy the new stuff. I try to scrounge for everything I need. It may not seem like much, but it makes a real difference. By pinching my pennies right along, I’ve been able to set aside money to invest. And now I can do whatever the [heck] I want.” Read more.

Encouraging for those of us who get flack for living this way.

I just wanted to thank you for all your great finds, and in making us all "Millionaires". My Grandpa was like that, always shopping thrift, used, recycled. He passed away about 5 years ago, and left my father with more money than we ever imagined. I believe how he lived his life is a lesson for me. He enjoyed what he wanted, did what he wanted, but never overdid, and always saved. He lived a life he was happy with!
