Alas, we did not invest in Apple stock or inherit trust funds so we will need to use our frugal smarts to get by in our upcoming retirement. One thing I have been doing now that the weather is cooler here in New England is to make soups, stews and chili for the freezer. We will pop out a smallish container of these for a great lunch or supper along with Paul’s incredible bread. (Paul is a fan of Jim Lahey’s “My Bread” Book)  If a friend isn’t feeling well, we can bring one or two containers because soup warms the heart as well as the body. I may continue with some frugal postings from time to time. In retirement saving money is as important as making money! Let me know what you think….

  1. That is so true, Mary Ellen. My parents lived through the Great Depression so I watched both my parents and my grandparents stretch a dollar pretty far. With Hubby’s and my retirement swiftly approaching, I really hope that we can stretch our money as far. I hope you’ll post more on frugal living in retirement.

  2. Thanks Mrs.A My friends tell me I have a talent for frugality. I will most definitely continue to do frugal tips especially for retirees but even the millennial crowd might learn or contribute a thing or two!
