Five Ways to Live Like a Millionaire Even If You are Broke

You don’t have to be among the world’s wealthiest people to have a rich lifestyle. All you do need, however, is an idea of how you want to live and a willingness to let go of the stuff and habits that are keeping you from the lifestyle you truly desire.

A Latte a Day

You really can have your latte whenever you want one. If this is a guilty pleasure of yours, then do yourself a favor: buy your own espresso machine for about $25 at a discount store and learn to make your own. Just because you’re not willing to throw money around at boutique coffee shops doesn’t mean you have to live without these luxuries. The machine could pay for itself in one weekend.

Visit a Spa Every Day

We know that it’s unrealistic to spend a day at a day spa every day of the week, let alone once a year when you live on a budget. However, if you give your bathroom a simple makeover, you could at least feel as if you’re visiting a day spa each time you use this often-neglected room. Clear off all the counters of any junk, toiletries or make up. Find some clever ways to store them in a drawer, a basket on a shelf or in a medicine cabinet. Replace all the clutter with cut flowers from your garden, an aromatherapy candle, essential oil or anything else that is simple and makes you smile and feel refreshed. Make your bathtub shine and keep it clean so that it’s always ready for an impromptu bubble bath or a romantic get-together with your significant other. Buy a couple of thick, luxurious spa-style towels, keep a thirsty robe nearby and some bath salts then not only can you visit the spa, you’ll be living there.

Your Room is your Castle

How do you feel about your bedroom? When you walk through the doorway, do you find yourself suddenly relaxed, or do you tense up? If your room is filled with too much stuff, too many pieces of furniture and more clutter or piles of paper than you can deal with, it’s no wonder you can’t sleep and don’t want to spend more time curled up with a good book. To make your room more special and a place you adore, you have to start eliminating the distractions. Think about a hotel room or a beautiful bed and breakfast and you’ll start getting ideas for how little you actually need in your room. Get your clothes put away, thin out the closets so you’ll have more space for the things you must store, and start making this room your sanctuary instead of a drain on your energy.

  1. I like your point of view. You don’t have to be a millionaire to be happy, you have to be able to do things you enjoy. I find that saving 90% of the time and splurging 10% also makes me feel rich. If you can be rich for two days a month that’s enough to keep you going.

  2. Jotter, thank you for your comment and kind words. I like your percentages — I think they are appropriate for most people. There do need to be rewards for working hard and doing all the right things in life. For me, I’d rather go out to one great restaurant a month, than to a bunch of so-so fast food places each week. One is a treat, the other is convenience. I’m willing to pack a lunch so that I can really enjoy my dining out.

    All the best,
