In an interview with CNBC a few weeks before his death, Charlie Munger said that he and Buffett had witnessed many wealthy friends build very beautiful mansions, but almost all of them made people less happy, not happier.

Munger said,"Having a house that meets the basic practicalities of living in is really helpful, but having a very luxurious house is a very expensive thing to do and it doesn't do you much good."

For him, living in a relatively simple house is not an accident, but a conscious choice that he has always made.

Munger believes that another fatal disadvantage of owning a huge mansion is:Such displays of wealth may spoil children by making them spend money.He had nine children from two marriages, including two stepsons and a nine-year-old son who died of leukemia.

He said:"[Buffett and I] have both considered bigger and nicer houses, and I have a lot of kids, so it makes sense. But I still decided not to live a life that looked luxurious and not live in a mansion. I did that on purpose. 's... I think living in a mansion is bad for children."


If you don’t move for 70 years, the most important thing is that the house is comfortable

Although Munger said that the house he lives in is not a mansion, for ordinary people, this house is already very luxurious.

Like Munger, Buffett has always been known for his frugality.

The 93-year-old billionaire bought his home in Omaha, Nebraska, in 1958 for $31,500, and Buffett has lived there ever since.

The house was originally built in 1921 and underwent several additions until it was a comfortable 6,500 square foot residence.

Buffett reportedly said at Berkshire Hathaway's 2014 shareholder meeting,"If he owned six to eight houses, his quality of life would be worse."

In addition to the house, it is rumored that he collects discount coupons to buy things, buys hail-damaged cars at low prices, often eats McDonald's breakfast, etc...

Netizens were surprised to find out that the consumption views of rich people are different from what we imagined.The richer people are, the more they save, and from time to time we buy coffee worth more than $4 a cup. No wonder we are poorer.

This is even more true for Munger. According to Reuters,Although Munger accumulated a net worth of approximately $23 billion during his lifetime, but he lived frugally and even drove his own car, although he used a wheelchair in his later years.


He was never extravagant in his life, but he was a generous philanthropist; since Munger studied at the University of Michigan in his early years, he was a major donor to his alma mater throughout his life.

He said in interviews that he owes his success and longevity to a long history of "caution."

Munger said in the interview:"Avoid madness at all costs, madness is more common than you think. It's easy to slip into madness. Avoid it!"

Just like living in the same house for decades, even if he stands at the top of the world's richest list, he does not show off at all. Being frugal, humble and low-key has always been Munger's attitude towards life.
