Three Years into Retirement

Pin It
I'm going to do this, I've taken a bit of time thinking about this post and I'm just going to do it. I'm not throwing anyone under a bus, but some of these things just have to be said, 
"Out Loud. You need to know !" and NOW IN A BOOK


My post has become a book, NOW on KINDLE
What you have to know before retiring, the day to day things


The Quilt Ladies NOW on Kindle and NOOK


JUST a few to the things I COVER ! 

1.    You MUST have a sense of humor, you MUST laugh, OUT LOUD, 

2.    I had to learn the difference from CHEAP and FRUGAL. 

3.    It’s alright to eat alone, I love it,

4.    BEFORE you retire - GET YOUR MONEY in Order 

5.    It’s just the way life is, 

6.    NEVER again say, 

7.    And, on that note, same with, Medical talk,

8.    Be Kind, with (old)  job titles and big ego’s 
9.    Do a random act of kindness.
10. If you see it, do it, don’t ask, 

11. When I tell you what I want

12. And about check writing, 

13.  Stop starting any conversation with, “I remember,” 

14. A hard one…..personal hygiene
15. Stop sharing every thought, 
16. Learn to text, short, sweet and done.

17. Drive with both hands on the steering wheel

18. Piles of papers are just piles of paper, 

19. Stop eating on a schedule,

20. Don’t make noises
21. Do not talk about anything that happened

22. We moved and are closer of family, 

23. Getting here to retirement 
24. This is for all, take care of your skin,


25. LAUGH, smile, rejoice and LAUGH

IT'S all TRUE,



Beth

  5. All so true! Thanks for your wisdom, Beth. But, you know that most of your thoughts should be for everyone, not just for us retirees. Keep smiling and stay happy. (Glad you have two bathrooms? )

  7. Thank you!!! We are retiring shortly at around the same age as you. People keep asking us what we will do! I have a great reply now "Whatever we want, whenever we want! Just not going to work everyday" I look forward to more time with family and friends :)

  10. I retired early so I still have to wait til I turn 60 (9 more years) to get my monthly pension. My husband doesn't want me to say that his earnings are just his. What he earns are ours. Anyway, being an early retiree doesn't mean you cannot enjoy because you're no longer earning. The bright side of retiring is that you get to spend more time with your children whose at their adult stage but not married yet. And parents who need you at their side in times of emergency.
    Just enjoy every moment of your life, alone or with someone close to you.

  11. What do you do for health insurance since you both retired early? My husband just retired (age 57) and our insurance is provided through my employer. I’m 56 and wonder what options are available for those not yet 65. Thanks for the tips!!

  12. Husband has is from his old work and I'm on a policy myself. We planned on it and I over saved, which is just fine !

  13. Tax planning is a massive ordeal for some retired people. It takes up a lot of planning regarding analyzing the sources of funds. It allows you to maintain your lifestyle and hence you need to keep your tax consequences in mind.Adult Day Care Los Angeles

  26. However, you have to be careful using this approach to estimate your retirement income, How do you join AARP because it is not meant to account for specific situation. There are things you do in retirement that you may not do in your current lifestyle such as extensive travel.

  27. But for most of the funds minimum investment per month is 500 rupees. Most people have misconception that to invest large sums of money is required. world’s best retirement calculator

  28. I wonder how big an investment would it take for you to live off dividends for the rest of your years after retirement? Does anybody have experience with this? My time with https://www.skipbinhireipswich.com/ is coming to an end and I am now thinking of additional ways on how to spend my retirement comfortably.
