There is no doubt about it, if we talk about retirement, a quiet, peaceful and worry-free stage comes to mind, but it is not exempt from asking us many things and making assumptions about the economic field.
The main reason is that, if we are used to have a lifestyle makes us wonder if it can remain the same once our only income is a pension, and if this will be enough to meet our needs. Therefore, it is necessary to be provisional and the most appropriate is to dispense with unnecessary expenses.
Have you considered that in the future it will not be necessary to have a big house? It is evident that in our adulthood we acquire spacious homes with the arrival of the children and contemplate spaces for our acquisitions (whatever their sizes), however, over the years we get rid of many things due to lack of use and our sons take their own way, then, we should not require so much space! Considering the acquisition of a smaller house is an excellent alternative to reduce expenses, less space = less maintenance. It can also be a good option and even leave extra income, subdivide the home or take advantage of the space to rent rooms.
Going from one place to another becomes cheaper in the golden years, maybe the term comes from there, but it is an indisputable truth: public transport, travel buses and even some airlines offer great discounts for the elderly. Even having a car should become more affordable for you since there is no need to maintain an expensive spacious car or a sports car. It is better back to basics and from this you will make great savings on gasoline, maintenance and of course less worries.
Having enough time becomes a currency, what do we mean? Taking advantage of free time to learn new things will greatly help us to economize, for example, workshops to learn how to make cleaning products, such as repairing home appliances and even physical rehabilitation tutorials, etc. have become very popular. Learning to DIY an endless number of essential things for everyday life will help us save a lot of money and, who knows, even offer the service to more people.
