If you have a retirement question, we've got many answers for you.
I only wanted one perfect answer.... well, life is full of options and it often depends on your perspective on how you want to live your retirement life.
Retirement-Online's motto is: HELP AND BE HELPED!
I can't begin to tell you how many retirees have been helped on my site... no brag, just fact! This site is totally blessed with so many helpful boomers who answer visitor questions based on their perspectives in retirement.
Everyone has different ideas, based on different life adventures and experiences. My personal idea for your question may totally not work for you, but others might have the perfect perspective and twist to change your life -- and often do!
You have two options...
