Aimee Elizabeth was a self-made millionaire who accomplished a lot through her extreme money-saving tactics on Extreme Cheapskates season 2, and she’s still finding success today. Even though she had enough wealth to live beyond her comfort, she chose to live like she was scrapping by just to save a dollar. Aimee didn’t like spending money unless it was absolutely necessary, and she had no qualms about eating cat food.
Extreme Cheapskates ran for three seasons on TLC, and Aimee was undoubtedly the richest person to ever appear on the show. Even though she had a lot of money, it still came with its sacrifices to get to that point in the first place. Aimee didn’t take her financial success for granted, which encouraged her penny-pinching ways even more.
Aimee Elizabeth Wrote A Book
Aimee wrote a book titled Poverty Sucks! How To Become A Self-Made Millionaire to teach others how to invest in their future and build their wealth. The Extreme Cheapskates alum has a rags-to-riches story that she wanted to share with the rest of the world. As a teenager, Aimee found herself broke and homeless, not knowing where her next meal would come from, but once she envisioned a completely different life for herself and put in the time, hard work, and sacrifice, she was on her way to becoming a multi-millionaire, and was able to retire at the age of 38.
Aimee is active on social media and can be found on Twitter and LinkedIn. She has over 2,000 followers on Twitter, and uses her online presence to share her political views and beliefs on current world affairs. According to Aimee’s LinkedIn page, she lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, and uses her knowledge and skills to help others live the best life possible. Before her time on Extreme Cheapskates and living life as a retired multi-millionaire, Aimee was involved in several business ventures, including owning a nightclub, a pet-sitting company, and an indoor plant business.
Now, Aimee has expanded her experience and resume as an author, consultant, and educator in the world of finance. Her extremely frugal ways have continued to pay off, and she continues to build upon her wealth by investing in real estate and other streams of income. Aimee hasn’t slowed down or given up on her money-conscious ways since her appearance on Extreme Cheapskates.
Aimee went overboard to save a dime on Extreme Cheapskates, and her unconventional methods aren’t necessarily recommended. She had no issue substituting tuna for cat food, or continually using the same kitchen sponge to wash her dishes until it disintegrated. Such extreme money-saving techniques aren’t for everyone, but Aimee has proven them to be a recipe for success for her, and it still continues to be.
