Work can be fun. So find a job that you will continue to enjoy, will make you a little cas, and best of all, pay for your medical insurance. I drive a school bus and I love it.

I found that a Roth IRA was the most beneficial to me now that I am 62 & able to enjoy my savings over the years ... Tax free‼️

Absolutely. We did this with our children, who are now 24, 28 and 31. Two out of three of them have told us that they have continued this habit (as much as possible with their young families). It does grow and it adds up, even for kids.

I always felt that it helped to avoid lots of small, wasteful purchases, because they were saving for things that they really wanted.  :-)

Put money into your 401K at least until you get the full match from your company.

Take advantage of senior discounts at grocery stores and restaurants. Clip coupons to save a little extra money each week. It adds up!

We drive a 2002 Saturn that has only 63,900 miles on it. It's been a great car, gets great mileage and was paid off a long time ago. Our insurance costs are minimum. We love it.

Great idea. The amount isn't as important as getting in the habit
