Teaching Warren Buffett and Mark Zuckerberg live below their means - here's why you should too

Warren Buffett and Mark Zuckerberg live below their means - here's why you should too

Warren Buffett's net worth is more than $84 billion, and yet he drives a used car and still lives in the house he bought before he amassed his fortune. It was only 2010 when Apple CEO Tim Cook moved out of his small rental home into a 2,000-square-foot condo, and 2011 when self-made billionaire Mark Zuckerberg moved out of his rental into a 5,000-square-foot five-bedroom house — both still modest for Silicon Valley standards. These frugal billionaires might be onto something. When it comes to smart financial advice, "live below your means" may be one of the best tips there is.
