In 2007, David Siegel, 74, and his wife, Jackie, 43, enjoyed a luxious lifestyle in Florida, with nannies, chauffeurs, private plans and huge parties. Jackie's wardrobe alone was $1 million per year. They were building a home in Florida patterned after Versailles in France and the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas.

The house was be the largest in America, with 30 bathrooms, 10 kitchens and a bowling alley. But when the real estate bubble burst in September 2008, they were forced to sell the house and downsize their lifestyle.

When it becomes clear they have to cut their budget, Jackie and David, both from humble backgrounds, react in unexpected ways.
