Fun Video for Going into the Weekend

SNL Don't Buy Stuff

Don’t Buy Stuff You Cannot Afford. It may seem obvious, right? But identifying things that are obvious  but that many people miss all together is what Saturday Night Life excels at.

17th Century French philosopher, mathematician, and writer, René Descartes (probably best known any more for his popularization of the phrase “I think, therefore I am”) opens his Discourse de la Méthode with the phrase: “Nothing is more fairly distributed than common sense: no one thinks he needs more of it than he already has.” Très bien dit, M. Descartes!

This is one of my favorite personal finance videos of all time: the Saturday Night Live “Don’t Buy Stuff You Cannot Afford” segment from February 4, 2006 with Steve Martin, Amy Poehler and Chris Parnell.
