While many may think the wealthy swims in their riches and work like there is no tomorrow, Entrepreneur has it that frugality is the secret to their success.

1. John C. Bogle has a net worth of $80 million. He is the founder of the Vanguard Group but he has always carried with him his frugal habits which came from his father's experiences during the Great Depression, according to Reuters.

2. John Caudwell who has a $2.7 billion net worth tag on him but he cycles 14 miles to work and cuts his own hair.

3. The $66.7 Billionaire Warren Buffet has always lived in the same old house he bought in 1956.
