What frugal retirement living lifestyle will you choose?
Welcome to the Frugal Retirement Living home page. This site will be of interest to:
People who are already retired and want to stay retired
People who are retiring now of their own choosing or not
People who are considering retirement but think they cannot afford it now
Despite all the doom and gloom you are hearing this site can help everyone listed above...
retirement is the payoff for all your hard work, you have earned it and deserve it...Read on and retire.
This site is devoted to folks who would rather retire than continue to work... I would think that would include most everyone.
This is not advice that you will get from the financial planner.
This site does not tell you how to make more money, but rather how to spend less and enjoy yourselves more...
Do not give up on retirement
Before giving up on retirement, all low-cost options for retirement should be examined.
We have experience in several and can at least get you to thinking
that all is not lost.
There is hope for frugal retirement and we can show you how...with advice based upon what we encountered when we tried these lifestyles.
When we announced we were going to retire in 1994
let's just say that we are greeted with a lot of skepticism.
Looking back from 2012... We wouldn't trade the last 18 years for $1 million.
We are reminded every day that swapping dollars for time...is a foolish exercise.
Do not let your retirement dreams go unrealized...you can do this.
A message from the editor of http://www.frugal-retirement-living.com
I am 67 and have been retired for 18 years by practicing frugal retirement
living. We do not feel deprived and have done (and are continuing to
do) all we want to do. We can show you how.
It is 2012 and times are tough, but there is hope.
We are not hippies, risk takers or anything out of the ordinary.
Living cheaply and well is possible for anyone who has a strong
desire to enjoy retirement.
Have you thought about these lifestyles?
We have experienced first hand several frugal living retirement options that you
may have never considered, including the following:
Living aboard a sailboat
Living in an RV
Small space living
None of these options are cheap living they are just living cheaply.
These lifestyles not for you?
No problem, if you think these options are not for you, we can show you how we
are staying retired in the conventional sense.
In fact these are
tips for anyone who would like to learn how to save money.
We will not be giving investment advice, pitching any get rich quick schemes, or asking you to purchase anything.
We will give you some tools and ideas to enjoy frugal retirement living.
Frugal retirement living conclusion
We have learned a lot about living cheaply and well in retirement during the past 18 years and believe the ideas we have developed will help us live comfortably into the future.
Relocating may be required to enjoy retirement in the most frugal
fashion. The best places to retire section will help you choose what
is just right for you.
Because of our experience at frugal retirement living, you do not have to learn by trial and error, which can sometimes result in costly mistakes.
The vast majority of retirees and potential retirees are going to have to supplement their income...
Here is the way we do it, it's the right honest way, anywhere you want to live and you can do it too.
