Let’s be honest, with all the money our favourite celebrities have, one would think after investing some of it, the rest would be spent recklessly (well, according to us middle class people).

However, American professional tennis player, Serena Williams, spends her millions responsibly, to a point where she dubs herself as a “boring spender”.

The tennis star admits she finds it hard to treat herself, and plans to get herself some accessories this year. “I don’t spend money, when I do, it’s on my daughter. I usually invest my funds. I am the most boring spender ever, I don’t spend it, and I invest it. I am really bad at treating myself, so I’m learning how to treat myself more. I’m working on it, I’ve thought about some jewellery,” Serena told People Magazine

The world’s number one also shared what could be in store for her future fashion lines. “I basically don’t balance. When I do something one day, it is a 100 percent. When I am done, I am done and on to the next thing. I live and breathe fashion, in the tennis off season, but no matter what else I do, I’m always a mom and I love every minute of it,” she adds
