List Highlights Movie Stars, Sports Personalities and TV Celebrities Who Love Saving Money
Mountain View, Calif. – February 1, 2012 – Rich and famous are adjectives that often go hand in hand to describe celebrities, but that doesn’t mean stars don’t know the importance of spending their money wisely. Plenty of celebrities are frugalebrities and are proud of their savvy shopping habits and financial prowess.
“Celebrities may be thought of as living lavish lifestyles but the truth is, like most of us, many stars love a good bargain,” said Jeanette Pavini, Coupons.com Household Savings Expert. “Whether it’s shopping around for a deal, clipping coupons or being smart with their spending, these ‘frugalebrities’ know the value of a buck.”
