Eric Bogosian: “Live within your means.”

Alice Cooper: “Put yourself on an allowance.”

Judge Alex Ferrer: “Save more than you spend.”

Al Franken: “Live frugally, pass on to the next generation.”

Jeff Greenfield: “Don’t be extravagant but enjoy life.”

Carl Hiaasen: “If you can’t predict what your income will be, it’s important to budget.”

Meg Tilly: “Eating in will help you save money, and saving money will give you choices in life.”

Each of the celebrities interviewed shares a personal story related to the way they handle their finances, whether directly or through a financial planner.
