Clever Guy Hasn’t Spent a Single Cent of Own Money in 36 Years, Thanks to Vouchers

He actually has stocks worth 300 million yen ($2.9 million) but a 71-year-old Japanese guy has not spent a single cent of his own money in 36 years! So, how did he pay for all his expenses? You’ll be amazed to learn that he’s only been using vouchers all these years.

At 71, Kiriya Hiroshi amazed everyone after sharing his incredible experience of using only vouchers and not spending a single cent of his own money for over 36 years! According to this wise old man, he started investing stock when he was 35 years old.

He learned that investors in the Japanese stock market are given vouchers they can use for various items, depending on the company and rewards program they have. By investing wisely, he was able to receive lots of vouchers for the products or items that he needed.

To date, he has stocks in over 900 companies – and receives hundreds of vouchers each year. Instead of money, he has dozens of different vouchers in his wallet. He uses these to buy food, pay bills, travel, or even buy a bike.

It is astonishing, actually, that he owns nearly $3 million worth of stocks yet he only uses a bike to get around the city. Many people were amazed to know that he owns that much in stocks because that meant he’s really rich yet he lives a frugal lifestyle and has been using the vouchers for many years.

At his age and despite his riches, he sticks to a strict budget and does not spend more than the voucher cost. It is amazing that he managed to live for many decades with this kind of mindset.

Many netizens expressed admiration over this wise guy of saving his money, but a lot say that they won’t go as far as just spend vouchers if they have that much money! Many were also concerned that his descendants will just spend the money he worked hard to save for decades, without him enjoying a single cent of it, literally!
