I must be getting old...

November 29th, 2014 at 06:17 am

and a bit bored. I decided to read up on how much retirement homes cost, and I had no idea the cost could be so ridiculously high. I mean, anywhere from $3000 to $5000 on up per MONTH high!

Of course, these are the nice communities where they have gardens, swimming pools, and yoga classes. Also, I think government insurance will cover some of that? I am not sure how much so. Anybody know?

Still, all I can think of is how much cheaper I can live simply on my own... which I will probably end up doing. Hard to say right now since it's still something that's so far away in my mind.

Then again, Fruggies are well-known for planning ahead. So, just for discussion sake, anybody here ever thought about this yet? Any ideas for a frugal retirement?

Oh, and I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! I am easily avoiding the Black Friday hub bub by... simply having to work haha.

Happy Veterans Day!

Here's something amusing I came across on the net today.

Seriously though, thank you all out there for your service.

Milestone 2014

November 5th, 2014 at 04:40 am

I forgot but I hit an invisible net worth milestone not too long ago.

It's amazing how, once upon a time, I thought it would be like winning-the-lottery awesome if I could reach this point.

Now that I am here though, it literally feels no different than I did before. In fact, I completely forgot.

Still, I need to be at this point financially, so it's not like I am unhappy about it. Plus, having goals and milestones helps keep me focused.

Anyways... yay! I went from feeling hopeless from years ago to feeling hopeful today. That peace of mind is certainly worth something. Yay!
