Being the mother of eight children, Sarah Jessica Parker’s mother had to face a lot of problems. Sarah and her siblings were raised by their mother and their often out of work stepfather. To help her family financially, Sarah started taking up dancing and singing gigs and would bring her paychecks home.
Growing up with financial problems taught Sarah the value of money. Now saving money and bargaining has become her forte. Sarah, her husband, and her three kids are living in a beautiful townhouse in NYC, which, according to NY Post, will be put up for sale soon. While the specifications of the house are not out, it was featured in one of Vogue’s 73 questions videos.
The house is quite modest but is beautifully furnished with a piano and a beautiful collection of globes. The duo is also planning to move into a megamansion in West 11th street, which will be made by combining two townhouses at 273 and 275 of the same street. The lovely pair had bought the house back in 2016 for a whopping $34.5 million.
Many people dress their kids in hand me downs and are a great way of saving money. And even among rich celebrities, some dress their kids in hand me downs. One of these celebs is Sarah Jessica Parker. According to Belief Net, Sarah Jessica Parker’s kids wear hand me down clothes that once belonged to Sarah herself.

Sarah‘s past has made her very conscious of how to use her money. Using hand me downs in her family and making wise decisions relating to spending money is a skill that she has mastered. The family also does not visit many fancy places like restaurants, expensive vacations, and such things. And together, the family embraces a happy and modest lifestyle.
