  1. Interesting reading. Hope young people will take heed. We are retired and can tell you it is much less expensive than they tell you to plan for. Older people tend to eat less. We only eat breakfast and a late lunch as that fills us up. Clothing is less because we already have most of what we need and no longer feel the need to keep up with trends.

  2. Thank you for visiting, I find your comments helpful, even though I am not yet retired I do have a basic concept for a budget, it has been pointed out that as long as I have enough for a funeral I don’t need life insurance either as I will have paid off the mortgage, reducing my budget further!

  3. I know that feeling! Thanks for commenting Brittany 🙂

    Retirement plans can falter, but so long as there is a plan or budget of some sort in place, it is possible to have less stress in retirement, bringing less money worries with it. We moved to be closer to family (at their request) to ensure someone was at hand should we have a problem, especially as my husband is 10 years older than me. Also closer to medical and shopping facilities. If you can no longer drive it is a good idea to be within walking distance of those amenities.

  5. Great tips thanks for taking the time to comment 🙂
