‘World’s cheapest millionaire’ refuses to buy ANYTHING new and eats 43p cat food – despite having £3.9m in the bankJanuary 27, 2021
DESPITE having a networth of £3.9 million ($5.3 millionaire) Aimee Elizabeth refuses to go a penny over her £730 ($1000) monthly budget.
The self confessed ‘world’s cheapest multi-millionaire’ refuses to spend money where she doesn’t have to despite having the means for a seriously comfortable life.
Aimee, 50, from Las Vegas, who appears on TLC’S Extreme Cheapskates, has sussed out ways to save money in every aspect of her life.
“I keep my water heater turned off, I need 22 minutes to heat it up enough to get a shower so I turn it on every morning when I get up” she says on the show.
“I set it for 22 minutes so I know exactly when my shower’s ready because God forbid I waste another minute on that water heater.”
It may seem petty, but Aimee claims it saves her £58 ($80) a month in doing so.
In fact Aimee saves a total of £146,000 ($200,000) a year by refusing to buy anything new.
She uses the same manky sponge until it falls to bits and only uses one knife which she refuses to wash up using water.
Her home is plush, but that was left to her by ex-husband Michael Murrey in the divorce who knew she would move into a “hovel” to save money.
And Michael is still very much in the picture, volunteering to clean the house for free so that Aimee can save £292 ($400) on cleaning fees.
Perhaps Aimee’s most stomach-turning frugal habit is that she feeds herself (and guests!) cat food so that she can save 22p (30c) on tuna fish.
Aimee’s job often requires her to travel to LA, but rather than fork out £182 ($250) she drives four hours each way in her 17-year-old car.
But when she’s told the 96 Mustang needs £730 ($1000) worth of repairs, Aimee dashes to the airport, where she hitches a free ride from a pilot.
She adds: “When I go to these extremes I think people see it and it annoys a lot of them but I don’t care.
“It saves money, you don’t understand that I don’t know how to speak to you.”
