Keep saving is my favorite tip. Even small amounts accumulate over time. I'd rather save up for special things that spend spontaneously for things I really don't need.

I was surprised that at 60 you should have 6x your income saved, I thought it would be higher.  Also, I enjoyed the article on enjoy your retirement. Both of these together made me question my decision to work part-time in retirement, but then again I enjoy what I do.

Make your money work! Set-it-and-forget-it for regular additions to savings (the company 401k or 403b or the IRA/Roth IRA) with an increase when you get a raise, review repetitve expenditures (the cell phone plan, the tv service) for better deals every year or so, when you replace your car make sure the new one is a fuel efficient vehicle, then make small conscious efforts (coupons, discounts, barter and borrow, a book or movie from the library instead of the bookstore or theater) when you think of them.  Little things add up, but you don't need to be obsessed with them to find the extra to put away. 🙂

Watch your health (& your partner's too!), as much as your money. Getting to retirement age without your partner won't be as much fun.

Never worry about the jones's next door. Usually the large home and luxary cars indicate all flash and no cash. Worry about yourself and live within your own means. A good nights sleep is more valuable than acquiring expensive items and large debts.

The contest ends Oct. 1, 2016. At least that is what I just read. Either that is a typo or your distributing old news. Please clairify. Did you make a typo. Or what? Jeffrey L. Anderson
