Do you need to live a cheap retirement lifestyle? At least, more frugal than your previous life?
Retirement is often one of those events in life that creeps up on you when you least expect it! Sometimes you voluntarily retire, but then retirement hits you like a ton of bricks. Sometimes retirement is dumped on you, involuntarily, leaving you exhausted, and confused!
You always thought that this would be the Golden Years they speak about -- a retirement lifestyle that enables you to put your feet up, travel the world, sip Martinis and be a Pampered Belle (or Beau if you happen to wear trousers)!
Not so much...
Most retirees are relatively cheap. Being cheap is part of the "retiree" culture. Even those who can afford more, are careful. After all, you are no longer earning money and what you have invested has to last the rest of your life. Right?
Cheap is Good… it’s Wholesome and it’s Eco Friendly, most important in these days.
Let’s take a short nap (very) which is essential for all successful cheap retirees and then figure this out. Short Nap? Well you don’t want to miss the 2-for-1 at the Walmart this afternoon… Do You?
Ok, now tell them you are retired, living on a fixed income now, and just can't afford their services. Advise that you are researching costs at other companies. Then ask if there is anything they can do to help you...
Does this sound crazy to you? Consider this:
Hey, why not?
LOOK at your bills...
Just THINK for a few moments about your bills and see where you might be able to cut back. Every penny counts towards making your monthly income go further!
One simple call can save you money, month after month!
The suggestions are just the tip of the iceberg, there are so many ways to save a few dollars every day. Just think, every dollar you save can be spent in another direction so that you don't have to draw from your savings account.
It's a win - win!
