Money-Saving Tips for the Ultra Wealthy

Turn off the lights in whatever wing you’re not walking around in wearing your long, feathered evening robe.

Consider cooking meals at home. With the purchase of a sous vide, culinary foam maker, atomizer, and some liquid nitrogen, you can whip up your favorite salad in the comfort of your own kitchen.

Did you know that you can reuse items around the house? Pillows, plates, and even some electronics may be used several times!
