The annual Forbes list of billionaires was just released, so in honor of those living Scrooge McDuck-like lifestyles (minus the part where they mentor three anthropomorphic great duck nephews with names that rhyme), we'll take a look at things rich people have bought for themselves, and a downmarket equivalent more in your price range.
What They Bought: A $9k Briefcase Though it's not for sale any longer, Tumi once sold a hulking 12lb accessory made with anti-ballistic material.
What You Can Buy: A Bullet Blocker Bag This puppy can stop bullets from a Magnum (and also from a puppy, if it accidentally discharges a gun within range), and it's only $245.
What They Bought: A Million Dollar Painting One of the heirs to the Wal-Mart fortune purchased the American classic "The Little White House" at auction
