Most Frugal Award: Ingvar Kamprad
IKEA founder, Ingvar saves money by using public transportation, flying economy, driving a 1993 Volvo and recycling tea bags. His extremely frugal lifestyle is what makes him one of the most eccentric.
“If you look at me now, I don’t think I’m wearing anything that wasn’t bought at a flea market,” Kamprad proudly said. “It is in the nature of Smaland to be thrifty. Normally, I try to get my haircut when I’m in a developing country. Last time it was in Vietnam.” It sounds like living like that is embedded in him and he loves to do it.
