    Tyra Banks
    [​IMG]

    Model, actress, author and host of “America’s Next Top Model,” Banks is one of many celebrities who live modestly.
    She saves money by collecting the shampoo, conditioner and soap from her hotel rooms and using leftovers the next day.**
    (**sounds like a few people I know!)

    Teri Hatcher
    [​IMG]

    “Desperate Housewives” star Teri Hatcher keeps her cars until they have at least 100,000 miles on
    them before trading them in. She also bakes for her daughter’s classroom rather than buying treats to bring in.

    Jennifer Lawrence
    [​IMG]

    Even after starring in the hugely successful “Hunger Games” trilogy, Lawrence still lived in her parents’ condominium.
    “I think it would be very bizarre to live in a big mansion by myself,” she told Elle.

    Lawrence eventually moved into her own digs, however. Variety reports that she bought a loft-style condo in New York City
    in early 2017 for a little more than $9 million.

    Royal thrift?

    Kate Middleton
    [​IMG]

    The future queen of England is well known for wearing the same outfit for multiple occasions —
    something royals are not known for doing. And her grandmother-in-law, the current Queen,
    has been known to turn off lights in empty rooms in Buckingham Palace.

    Conan O’Brien
    [​IMG]

    When comedian Conan O’Brien began starring on “Late Night,” he drove a 1992 FordTaurus.
    With a 2017 net worth estimated at $100 million, we’re guessing he’s upgraded by now.

    Tim Cook
    [​IMG]

    As CEO of Apple, Tim Cook took home $145 million in 2016, most of it in vested stock.
    But in Adam Lashinsky’s book, “Inside Apple,” Cook said he likes “to be reminded of where I came from,
    and putting myself in modest surroundings helps me do that. Money is not a motivator for me.”

    Buying personal stuff in bulk, and coupons?

    Hilary Swank
    [​IMG]

    Award-winning actress Hilary Swank lived in a trailer, and even out of her mother’s car for awhile,
    when she was younger. That experience instilled frugal habits that she retains to this day, like buying
    toiletries in bulk and clipping coupons.

    Another coupon shopper :cool:

    Carrie Underwood
    [​IMG]
    John Shearer—WireImage

    One of the wealthiest country music stars, Carrie Underwood admits she clips coupons when she goes grocery shopping. Further illustrating that there’s not that much difference between some rich and poor people, she also said she often forgets to bring the coupons with her to the store. And if you’re wondering what rich people eat, Underwood buys stir-fry kits and meatless burgers.

    Ashley Greene
    [​IMG]

    “Twilight” star Ashley Greene credits her father with instilling frugal ways in her at a young age. She’s grateful because she knows her meteoric rise to fame could turn around just as quickly. She spends carefully in case the next big acting job doesn’t come along for awhile.
