Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – When a person becomes wealthy, many assume that that person’s life will be prosperous, prosperous, and able to help others. Even so, this assumption is not always done by rich people.
One of them is Aimee Elizabeth. He is a billionaire from the United States (US) worth US $ 5.3 million or Rp. 80 billion.
Instead of living in prosperity and helping others, Aimee actually behaves in a way that according to her is “frugal”. Even so, many people consider this attitude not thrifty but stingy.
How could he, who is now 52 years old, show behavior that makes the public shake their heads. In exposure News Corp. AustraliaIt is known that this woman has a maximum monthly spending limit, which is only US$ 1,000, aka only Rp. 15 million, no more.
Indeed, these figures can be said to be very reasonable. However, again his attitude made many people think.
In order to reduce expenses, Aimee only wants to take a shower every morning with warm water for exactly 22 minutes. He doesn’t want to exceed the time limit because it can change his monthly electricity bill.
Not only that, to meet food needs, he is willing to eat cat food. to channel TLC TVAimee said that canned cat food is cheaper than human food.
After all, even nutritionists don’t forbid humans from eating cat food, so Aimee thinks it’s fine to save expenses. In fact, even to the guests he was willing to serve it with the cat food, as a result only a few people want to visit his house.

It didn’t stop there, when he finished eating he refused to wash the dishes and other cutlery. He just cleans it with a towel or sponge before placing it in the drawer.
All of this is done to save on water expenses. What’s worse, he is so stingy, he doesn’t want to replace the towel or sponge if it hasn’t been so badly damaged that it rots or crumbles.
This attitude does not only occur at home, but also at work. Aimee, who often commutes Las Vegas-Los Angeles for 430 km, refuses to use the plane.
Even though as a billionaire he is very capable of buying plane tickets even to first class. However, in order to save money he is willing to drive the car alone for hours on end.
In the end, many people saw that Aimee’s attitude was not thrifty but stingy on the worst scale. Even though Aimee is aware that her attitude makes people surprised and quite uncomfortable with her, she still doesn’t care.
“It saves money. You don’t understand it, I don’t know how to explain it to you,” he told me TLC.
Thanks to this saving method, Aimee has succeeded in reducing expenses by US$ 200,000 or Rp. 3 billion each year. That number is indeed big.
However, seeing Aimee’s attitude, it seems that it is something that is not exemplary. No wonder he is known as the most stingy billionaire in the world.
