Even those making millions can be frugal 🙂
You see those things in Washington too, but there’s also a conversion van, a bicycle, a handful of worn-out sedans and a beat-up old Mazda that rolled off the assembly line more than two decades ago.
That’s because the surprise NFC East champion Redskins have a group of stars who are obsessed with spending as little money as possible.
“Maybe someday I’ll have enough saved and I’ll see what I can get,” said starting quarterback Kirk Cousins, who drives a dented GMC Savana passenger van to work. “But it’s better to buy appreciating assets than depreciating. No yachts, no sports cars.”
“There are guys who take [saving money] to heart and try to live that frugal lifestyle,” said offensive lineman Tom Compton, who shared an apartment with Cousins for three years.
