When it comes to splashing the money around you’ll not find it more publicized than with a celebrity, and with some of the biggest movies stars and singers having millions to spend like it was a chocolate bar, why shouldn’t they? When Victoria Beckham was first seen with her gold iPhone 4, reports suggested the device was a 24-carat iPhone from Stuart Hughes, apparently worth over £20,000, although this rumor was quickly denied by Beckham’s PR team and the said price was meant to be under £1,000 for a standard gold iPhone. These are not the choices of frugal celebrities.
If you think that iPhone is stupidly expensive than you should see another, which costs around £5 million and includes 100 carats of diamonds. You can read more about that device here, although cheaper versions have been bought by a number of showbiz stars including Stefano Gabbana and Karl Lagerfeld. Other high priced gadgets that are targeting the rich and famous include a 24ct Gold iPod Touch 4G for over £200,000 (we wonder if an iPod touch 5G will be made), a white iPhone 4 with diamonds for $20,000, a $3 million iPhone 3GS, and even a Nintendo Wii in solid 22ct gold for more then $400,000.

Anyone that has studied frugality will understand it means you aim to acquire different products, including gadgets, in a manner that is more restrained and this is especially the case when it comes to prices. This may be easier for those of us with normal incomes, but how hard must it be for frugal celebrities?
You may be surprised to find out that there are a few of them in the celebrity world, and this includes Jay Leno, Queen Elizabeth, Mick Jagger, Tiger Woods and Teri Hatcher, according to this article.
If you had the money of these celebrities, would you spend it sparingly?
