You really need to save even a dollar a day because with us we thought we had plenty of money to retire on but after my husband had heart surgery and then now with alheimzers the medical bills even after medicare pays are breaking the bank.  Once you loose your savings social security just dosen't cover your living expenses and it is hard to cut back when you want to have all the things you have saved for.  But SAVING BACK even a little is hard but you must learn or the stress of money worries is really harder to deal with than doing with out something that once you think about it is really not necessary!!!

Take advantage of senior discounts there are about 100 restaurant, retail, and grocery store chains that offer senior discounts, and some are quite generous.

Buy a carpet cleaning machine.  They're really not that hard to use, and you can clean individual rooms on your own time.  Compared to the cost of using a professionally cleaning service, your machine will pay for itself in no time at all.

I realize how little I really need in this world.  Shopping, except for food, seems a waste of time and energy.  I need to finish writing my book!

I joined Ibotta and Wal-Mart's savings catcher to get rebates on what I just bought.  I've gotten back over $120 in gift cards I can apply to my next purchases.  I also try to use coupons and look for brand and store loyalty programs.

It's never too late to start saving.  At 55 years young, I started a part-time job and saved over 35K in my 401K plan over a 10 years just by contributing 20%.
