Ikea Billionaire miser

Why Ikea Billionaire Ingvar Kamprad is probably the World's Worst Miser alive!

Ikea founder Ingvar Kamprad: net worth $41.2 Billion, steals condiments from restaurants and toiletries from hotels.

Ingvar Kamprad is the ninth Richest Man in the World with a Fortune of  $41.2 Billion.

Here are his self-proclaimed feats of penny-pinching in order of thriftiness...

  • Recycles tea bags.
  • Steals toiletries from hotels.
  • Steals salt and pepper packets at restaurants.
  • Only wears second-hand clothes bought at flea markets.
  • Tries to get cheaper haircut when travelling in poorer contries.
  • Eats at Ikea cafe for free meals. Otherwise he frequent cheap restaurants.
  • Purchases Christmas paper and presents in post-Christmas sales.
  • Has a 1993 Volvo 240 but prefers to use public transportation.
  • His home is furnished with Ikea furniture he assembled personally.
  • Flies only economy class.
  • Haggles for bargains at common markets.
  • Lives in a modest house.
  • He flew his country for lower taxes in Switzerland's tax haven. Normal, a good business decision. Only idiots want to pay taxes!

Nothing better than a free hot-dog at one of his Ikea stores.

I admire his thriftiness.
