Many billionaires choose to live below their means with frugal habits and lifestyles. Those people who consistently commit to saving more, spending less, and sticking to a reasonable budget are more likely to become millionaires and even billionaires. Many millionaires emphasize the freedom that comes with spending below their means. For instance, the great American money manager Warren Buffett indicates no desire for having multiple houses, multiple cars, or any other kinds of material items. Buffett still lives in his modest Omaha house, which he bought for $31,500 in 1958 and should be now worth about $276,700 after proper inflation adjustments. Instead of using a high-tech smart phone, Buffett continues to use a flip phone (although he invests substantially in Apple equity stakes).

Also, the self-made British billionaire Richard Branson spends little on clothes, fair watercolors, and luxury items. With modest middle-class roots, Branson indicates that it would embarrass him to enjoy a lavish lifestyle. Further, Facebook cofounder and chief Mark Zuckerberg drives a modest set of wheels. His main daily uniform comprises a simple T-shirt, a hoodie, and a pair of jeans. Many millionaires and billionaires enjoy more quality time with their family and friends than lavish lifestyle changes.
