Here’s Your (Dollar) Sign!

Close Encounters of the Cheap Kind has a new home at www.CheapEncounters.com!

In my opinion, one of the funniest comedians out there is Bill Engvall. Bill is probably best known for co-starring with the likes of Jeff Foxworthy in the various “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” shows and movies, as well as his hilarious signature schtick “Here’s Your Sign”.

Well, Smart Money did a profile and interview with Bill Engvall, which you can find here. While I don’t think Bill will be writing any personal finance books anytime soon, the article is an interesting read. You can definitely tell that fortune and fame have influenced his spending habits, but it is pretty interesting to read his perspective on the role of his wife in managing their money. To keep him in check, Engvall’s wife serves as the financial gatekeeper, tracking every penny that the couple spends. “If it wasn’t for her, I think I’d own just a Corvette and a broken stereo,” says Engvall.

I think one of the most interesting quotes is his best money advice. “Never buy any new technology the first year it comes out. Let somebody else be that sucker.”
