Investing legend Warren Buffett is worth an estimated $86 billion, which makes him one of the richest people in the world. But you’d never know it from his lifestyle. The 87-year-old billionaire still lives in the five-bedroom home in Omaha, Nebraska, that he bought in 1958 for $31,500. And he never spends more than $3.17 on breakfast. On his five-minute drive to the office, which he’s been making for the past five decades, Buffett stops by McDonald’s and orders one of three items: two sausage patties, a sausage, egg and cheese or a bacon, egg and cheese.
I tell my wife, as I shave in the morning, I say, ‘Either $2.61, $2.95 or $3.17.’ And she puts that amount in the little cup by me here [in the car],” he explains in the HBO documentary, “Becoming Warren Buffett.”
