Rick Ross’ net worth is $40 million so you may be surprised to hear that he’s very frugal when it comes to certain things. Instead of spending $1 million a year to maintain his 235 acres of land in Georgia, Rick says he cuts it himself…AND on top of that he loves to go to antique stores to buy things that cost 8-20 bucks and takes commercial flights as much as possible.  According to Rick “When I bought the Fayetteville estate, locals would see me walk out of a restaurant and scream, ‘You know Holyfield spent $1 million a year to cut the grass.’ So I decided that I was gonna cut my own grass. And that’s what I did,” Ross said in a new interview. “I went down to John Deere and asked to see the biggest tractor, the most efficient tractor. I told them I had 200-plus acres that I wanted to keep cut, and they pointed out the right tractor. … I may have sat in the same spot for two hours before I got everything working, but once I got it going, I didn’t stop. I cut grass for about five hours.”
