Here are some fun ways to make you feel more wealthy or smarter than you really are!

How to fake wealth:

  • Wear Gap clothes with really expensive shoes
  • Drive the cheapest Lexus instead of the fanciest Toyota
  • Learn which foods don't cost very much, but still have ritzy French names
  • Whatever your job is, say you get more business than you can handle as a consultant
How to fake intelligence
  • Study book and foreign film reviews so you can pretend to have read or seen them
  • Wear glasses

Don't use clear containers
