May I join you!

May 4th, 2006 at 11:20 am

Hello! I love your forum and I want to play, too! May I join you?

I'm single and in my late fifties. My goal is to retire in about a year and join my cousin in the Carolina's, where we will share a house and expenses.

BUT before I can do that, I have to build up my retirement savings more, pay down my debt more, and fix up my house to sell. All on a very slim income, and this month I am particularly cash-poor. Okay, I'm always cash-poor. I've been on the frugal bandwagon for about ten years, but I haven't really gotten ahead, so I need to seriously re-evaluate my habits.

Anyway, I thought that talking to (and listening to) you guys might help me on my way.

    Oh, we sound so much alike. Welcome. I am looking forward to retiring but it's oh so scary. I'm saving as fast as I can. I do have a senior in high school yet. My baby, one of four boys.

    I just gave my notice to retire..........and wow, what changes it started here in my life. I thought I was frugal too, but knowing the paychecks were stopping has given a new twist to frugal here.

    Looking forward to hearing of your progress as you head down the same path..

    Having retired early (at 40), and not receiving that monthly check while still receiving the monthly definitely changes the view!
