You may already be retired or be looking at retirement just around the corner. You may also be looking at a fixed budget and require ways to stretch that budget. Read on to find out what you can do when you hit that golden age.

  • Do your own cooking – You have more time to spend in the kitchen, so keep yourself active and fix some healthy meals.
  • Take advantage of senior discounts – It may feel weird to ask for a senior discount, but many stores offer a discount as early as age 55.
  • Don’t spoil your grandkids – We know you want to spoil them, but we promise they will remember all the love and attention you give them more than any toy you could buy.
  • Downsize your belongings – Do you really need everything in your home? Sell what you don’t need and put that cash into your savings account.
  • Stick to a budget – It’s easy to overspend if you ignore your spending habits. Put together to curb your spending and cut costs where you can.
  • Consider working a bit longer – You don’t have to work full time. Consider finding a job that you enjoy, and that can offer you flexible hours.
  • Try to keep an emergency fund – When you live on a fixed income, it’s always a good idea to save some cash locked away or in a savings account so that when you have an emergency, you can take care of it.
