What I got out of it is that people with a lot of money (i.e. millionaires) tend to get there by being frugal and responsible with their money. Lots of other people, however, tend to buy big flashy items that say 'look at how much money I have', but buy them all on credit and then put all their disposable income into paying off their flashy lifestyle instead of accumulating lasting wealth.

Moral of the story: being rich and acting rich are two different things.
