Written by

A ways back, I was reading Jason Cabler's Celebrating Financial Freedom blog when I came across a post he highlighted. He found a hilarious Saturday Night Live video featuring Steve Martin and Amy Poehler. More importantly, it is extremely relevant to personal finance.

Sometimes we make things too difficult in personal finance. We spend time trying to figure out lending club earnings to a tenth or hundredth of a percent. While that can matter over the long term, sometimes it's best to stick to the basics.

This is a good reminder that personal finance doesn't have to be difficult. Hopefully you got a laugh out of it like I did.
