The Cosby Show: All about College, Budgeting and Life

Bill Cosby, always the voice of steady reason and reality, something it seems, is sorely lacking in our society these days.

I miss watching this show!

Hat tip to Rockstar Finance for this, J$ (that crazy foo) even typed out almost the entire transcript!!

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have paid my $600K home in cash (my half was $300K), my $180K casr in cash, worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

      @Ariana Auburn: They gave good values without being soft and wishy washy like parents today.

    I loved the Cosby show too! I did feel a bit bad for Theo. Dad could have hugged him or something before he let it rip.

    $400 for an apartment in Manhattan? Those were the days!

    to be fair, I was drinking some beer when I typed it out which of course always sounds like a good idea at the time 😉 my wife started to get concerned after she heard me playing this over and over and over again a good 15 times until I got it all down, haha… It’s def. a good one though! Glad you enjoyed it too 🙂
