The 12 Most Frugal Celebrities

We aren't the only ones to use coupons. Some of Hollywood's A-listers regularly look for discount deals and practice money-saving habits.

Coupons.com compiled a list of penny-pinching celebrities, and we've added a few of our own.

From stars who clip coupons to those who bargain buy, here are the celebrities who know how to stretch a dollar.

1. Jay Leno doesn't spend any of the money he earns from "The Tonight Show."



The late-night host revealed in a Parade column that he only spends money from comedy routines.

"When I was a kid, I had two jobs," wrote Leno. "I worked at a Ford dealership and at a McDonald’s. I’d spend the money from one job and save the money from the other. That’s still the way I am now. I live on the money I make as a comedian, and I put all the TV money in the bank. I’ve never spent a dime of TV money—ever."


2. Singer Carrie Underwood clips coupons for weekly shopping.



While taking Everyday with Rachael Ray through a day in her life, Underwood shared that despite forgetting coupons sometimes, she does make a habit to cut them out.

"Doing the weekly shopping, I stock up on stir-fry kits, Amy's meatless burgers, and armloads of onions and garlic. I put onions and garlic in everything. Ack—as usual, I forgot my coupons. (Yes, I do clip them!)," shared Underwood.



3. "Mad Men" star Vincent Kartheiser lives in a one-bedroom Hollywood apartment and takes public transportation.



The "Mad Men" actor told The New York Times in 2010 he prefers to travel mass transit as opposed to a car.

“It’s wonderful,” said Kartheiser. “Instead of driving and being stressed out about traffic, you can work your scene, you can do your exercises or whatever on the bus."


4. Despite being one of the richest supermodels in the world, Tyra Banks relishes in saving.



“I am frugal. I’ve always been this way," Banks told The New York Times. "When I was young, my mom would give me my allowance, and I’d peel off a little each week and have some to spare.”


5. Actress Jennie Garth purchases new clothing to complement her daughters' existing wardrobes.



Garth told Access Hollywood when it's time for a new school year, she'll try to save money by finding ways to reinvent her kids' old attire.

"We usually buy new things that can be mixed and matched with their existing wardrobe," said Garth. "Back-to-school is a great time to clean out their closets, and anything outgrown we donate or [sell]."

6. "Twilight" actress Ashley Greene takes pointers on cash-crunching from her dad.



The actress told Marie Claire that just because she was in the successful "Twilight" franchise it doesn't mean the fame has gone to her head.

"I'm lucky because my dad taught me to be frugal and save," said Greene. "And that's important because I want to know that I don't have to take an acting job for two or three years if I don't want to and that I'll still be able to make my house and car payments and buy food for my dogs.”
