Wealth and material things do not give happiness, at least this thinks this multimillionaire 4 called Swedish Ingvar Kamprad, who owns the great company IKEA.

Although he stopped working at the age of 87, he resisted his retirement because he liked to work.

Despite being extremely rich something that impacted me from his life is that he handled a Volvo of about 20 years ago.

But this is not all because it also decorates your home with the low cost furniture that manufactures your company, you wear clothes. But this is not everything as it also decorates your house with the low cost furniture that manufactures your company, you wear second clothes hand and sometimes leaves the Volvo at home to use public transport to move.

In addition, although its house is large and beautiful, it is not the typical luxurious house and acres that are allowed these multimillionaires.

Another fact about this man is that he buys most gifts after the holidays because there are more discounts.

His fortune is around 64 billion dollars, and yet he has decided to live in this unique way. Many people think that it is stingy, others who are saver and others who simply understand that living with little is more rewarding.

What do you think is the reason why this man has decided to live like this?
