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!

  1. Although Dave was never my style for late night, I think an era has come to an end and it’s sad to see him go! I’m not sure I want to see my co-workers naked. I just kind of threw up in my mouth a little. 🙂

  2. It blows my mind how long he was on. I never actually watched him, but there’s a whole devoted fan base that I’m sure is eager to see what he does next.

    I like driving my neighbor’s car to work. If I worked outside the home, it’d be tempting.
