Tonight we say goodbye to David Letterman and his 33 year run on late-night television. I wanted to take a moment and share the things David Letterman taught me about Personal Finance, but there really haven’t been any. He has kept me laughing for as long as I can remember. I know he’s not everyone’s favorite, maybe it’s an East coast thing or maybe even a New York thing, but I have always found his dry sense of humor hilarious. So much so that I model a TV project I did in High School after his show doing my best Letterman impression. So in his honor here a top ten list once last time for Dave.
Top Ten Things You Can Do to Cut Spending In Your Budget
10. Don’t rent or own, just squat!
9. Drive your neighbor’s car to work.
8. Dine and dash!
7. Drink rainwater!
6. Don’t brown bag it, just eat anything you want out of the office refrigerator.
5. Who needs heat? Just burn your couch!
4. Rubbing alcohol makes a great martini.
3. Who needs a dentist, we’ve got pliers.
2. Let’s grandpa watch the kids!
And the number one thing you can do to cut spending in your budget:
1. Ditch the clothes and go to work naked!
Thanks for the laughs Dave!
Brian is a dad, husband, and an IT professional by trade. A Personal Finance Blogger since 2013 who, with his family, has successfully paid off over $100K worth of consumer debt. I want my three children to handle money better than I ever did at a young age. I have been teaching them as much as I can for the last 10 years. My goal is to continue to champion the financial literacy message and then why I created the “How To Rock Your Money” book. To help teenagers navigate their financial futures. I hope my family’s story of paying off over $100,000 worth of debt will inspire and motivate you to take control of your money. He blogs at BrianBrandow.com
