In the world of Save. Spend. Splurge.: The one way people can tell if you’re rich

Psst! I gathered all of my money Instagram posts into one custom hashtag: #savespendsplurgemoney

Would anyone be interested in a book condensing all of this into one concise read? Let me know.

…and it isn’t with what you wear, luxury items, or fancy cars. People can tell if you have money just by looking at your face.

I agree with this article because if you think about it, rich people have money to buy contact lenses and not wear glasses, or to have Lasik surgery.

They also have money for better skincare, are able to fix their teeth, whiten them, and “waste” money on things like appearance and not have to worry about putting food on the table.

Then speaking of food, they are able to buy organic, buy fresh fruits and vegetables which ARE expensive, and better cuts of meats or foods. They aren’t likely to eat from a dollar store, food bank or to buy fast food because it’s the only thing they can afford.

They also have trainers, or access to gyms and the like, and keep in shape for the most part. That said, people who are extremely skinny (to me), look like they have no money at all as it brings to mind not having enough food to eat.

Thoughts?

Yes I really did spend $800 CAD (total, taxes in) on a Dyson Airwrap Hair Styler Complete Kit and I love it. My full unbiased review on the Dyson Airwrap here, plus tips and tricks.

I have been so sensitive to smells lately that it has been hard to find a shampoo that doesn’t make me want to throw up. The winners? Aesop’s Nurturing Shampoo fits the bill with its essential oils as scents…. and I also like John Masters Organics Shampoo. Their zinc one smells SO divine.

I am going to leave you some cute Ellen videos of super smart children:

They’re all so cute. They all in some way, remind me of Little Bun (of course) with their eager little faces.

And she isn’t a young little genius, but I love watching Michelle Obama in any way possible.

I absolutely love lion imagery in jewellery like in this necklace (I hear that it means I am an arrogant, overconfident bouffant psychologically speaking), but there is something powerful about it.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    I think the exception is glasses–lots of rich people wear glasses. They’re sort of a fashion statement in certain high-powered professional circles, too…think about Sarah Palin’s signature frames, or how Prince William sometimes wears glasses, Oprah’s signature frames, etc. Also, good glasses cost way more than contacts do–even a two year supply of contacts runs you less than a good pair of designer prescription glasses at an eyewear shop.

      I have to definitely keep an eye out for this.. I am not even perceptive enough to notice such things but I do feel like I look like a woodland forest animal with glasses on. 😉

    Hahaha not true at all. Some of the richest people I know had no time for this stuff. They favored wearing the same thing over and over again and again, pulling heir hair back and being extremely minimal with make up and had less than zero time for cosmetic procedures (the teeth whitening would be one). Money is not so much the issue as time to do all this.

      “Not true at all” is a very broad, general statement. Just because the people you know don’t do these things, doesn’t mean other rich people don’t do them.

      Instead, why not say: “Not the ones we know, but perhaps it is because we live in a low key area”…

      And for the record, they may not have spent time on getting surgeries or any of that, but they certainly have less wrinkles, health, teeth and skin issues than someone who lives with less money. Money pays for basic dental work, health care, eye surgeries for when your eyesight goes, and when you have money, you aren’t frowning and stressed all the time. You have a car that you can ride in, that shields you from the damaging UVA / UVB rays that cause wrinkles and sun spots. You have less wear and tear on your body in general, not having to take the bus and lug heavy groceries all the time.

      People with money, look better. Period.

      They don’t necessarily need surgery, to your point, but they have money to eat better, eat organic, and time to work out, read, do stress relievers like that, which all affect the way you look.
