Where I Grouse Around About Retirement

Being Prepared

Well, yes, it is time to think about setting aside some savings for when you are retired. It makes a difference. Just have it taken right out of your paycheck and then you will not notice after a while that $100 is missing every two weeks. I have to tell you; I wish I’d done that although I did save half that amount. It helped.

Back when I was working, I earned $200 a day. We were comfortable. Now, I am retired, and I earn, on average, about 15¢ a day writing at Medium. A Tic Tac versus the rent, groceries, insurance, and dinners out. I am collecting Social Security but that’s about a quarter of what I used to make.
