I get restaurant coupons, but they're "$5 off of 2 adult meals". I can't use them as there's only 1 of me, and I eat out very seldom.

ATM Smart Savings Sweepstakes - Financial Success in Retirement

Message 232 of 671

Achieving a financially-sound retirement can be done!  The trick, no matter when you start saving, is to understand the difference between needs and wants.  Living below your means and saving in a disciplined way is essential and key.  It's not sexy or exciting to save a little bit at a time - but that's the true way to financial success.

Buy a freezer so that you can buy food like meat when it is on sale and freeze it.

Always ask yourself if it is a want or a need.

Start saving early and understand the difference between need and wants.  A new car:  probably a want.  A new cell phone: probably a want.  Food, rent, utilities: probably a need.

Before buying anything online, wait a day.  I've found that many times my need for the item has disappeared!
