The couple has an interesting approach when it comes to ways of spending money.
Kutcher and Kunis don’t use their money as one would think the rich and famous do. Per their own words: "(Our) kids are living a really privileged life, and they don’t even know it. And they’ll never know it, because this is the only one that they’ll know. I’m not setting up a trust for them. We’ll end up giving our money away to charity and to various things.”
Spoiling their children is not something they do. Quite on the contrary, they want to instill a healthy work ethic in them from a young age. Their spending habits are also more focused on investing for the future, as Kutcher scouts various tech companies. Kunis also launched a wine company.
Here are some details about how the couple spends their money:
1- Ashton buys shoes for a Texas cross country team
Monica Gutierrez, a mother in Texas, sent a letter to Kutcher trying to get her son´s high school cross-country team new pairs of shoes. She wasn’t expecting much, but what happened? Ashton delivered and sent shoes for the entire team.
2- Investing in quarantine wine
The couple partnered up for this charitable investment alongside Stephen Amell. They created quarantine wine with the proceeds going straight to charities in order to combat the ongoing pandemic. Bottles range from two for $40. Mila explained via Twitter: “100% of the proceeds will go to a handful of charities that we have done homework on, vetted out to make sure that they do what they’re supposed to, their outcome is visible, and so we took the guessing game out in the case you want to help people.”
3- A $3 million investment
Ashton funded a gem that has serious potential to grow. The e-commerce start-up investment wasn’t cheap, as the actor dropped $3 million alongside his partners. Coin Desk explained the investment: “E-commerce start-up Lolli, which gives shoppers bitcoin rewards for online purchases at retailers like Sephora, just attracted investment from the YouTube beauty queen herself, Michelle Phan.”
4- Mila’s $190 wedding band purchase
While speaking to Conan, Kunis said she wasn’t dishing out major bucks for her wedding band and, in total, she revealed the cost was $190. E Online elaborated:
"I wanted the thinnest possible platinum band. I mean, you can't see it, but it's super, super thin." While the camera zoomed in on her ring, she recalled being appalled at the price of Tiffany and Co. wedding bands. I was like, 'They're how much? This is astronomical. So, I went on Etsy and I was like, '$90?' I was like, 'Buy now!' Ashton's was $100, so technically his wedding band was a little bit more expensive. My engagement ring is beautiful, but I don't ever wear it. This ring, I'm like, 'It's $90!' It's great. That person on Etsy had no clue whose ring they were making, but they were wonderful and very nice and polite and generous."
