CONNIE'S CORNER

Over my 32+ year real estate career I have earned numerous designations.  These designations are much more than just letters after my name.  They show that I spend time learning about the real estate industry so that I can provide you the very best service. 

One of designations is SRES® (Senior Real Estate Specialist).  As a SRES® certified REALTOR, I have the knowledge of managing the sale of properties for those over the age of 50 and am astute to the financial and emotional challenges senior clients face when they sell a long-held family property.
 

My membership provides continued education through web sites and publications.   I found the following information on ways to save money after retiring in the SRES® March/April 2017 edition interesting and worthy of sharing:
 

After the kids are gone and you’ve retired, do you really need 2 or more vehicles?  Examine what you’ve paid in the last year for maintenance, repairs, insurance, etc.  Public transportation may be your answer to more than 1 car. Public transportation may not be glamorous, but it is eco-friendly.  You may want to check out senior specific transportation options as well.

Cut the Cable.  With improvement of online streaming options, you may want to consider Netlix, Hulu, Amazon Video, or others.  Free Online TV Channels may also be an option (FOX, Me TV, Home & Garden TV, Discover Channel, Comedy Central are a few options).  Live Online News (CNN, MSNBC, WSJ, Bloomberg Television are a few).  WEB only channels like TED Talks, Documentary Addict, World Science U, and YouTube may be worth checking out.
 

Are you paying storage unit fees?  Start getting rid of unnecessary stuff.  Ebay valets (ebay.com/s/valet) might be an option for you.
 

Prescription Drug costs can vary dramatically, so comparison shop.  Take a list of all your prescriptions to each local pharmacy and ask for an itemized price quote.  Some online options like WebMD.com/rx or GoodRx.com might be an option as well.
 

Check out seasonal discounts like:  Cars in fall, Computers in March/early April and August/September, Large Appliances in September/October.  (Refrigerators are cheapest in May).  Televisions go on sale over Thanksgiving weekend and in January/early February and you are likely to find mattress deals over Memorial Day weekend.
 

For other opportunities to save on purchases, try CamelCamelCamel.com or Keepa.com to view price history charts and set up price drop alerts to save on purchases.

FDR founded an organization to find a cure for polio, and believed that if everyone gave only a dime, polio would be eradicated.  Because of this motto, after his death in 1945, FDR's face was put on the dime, and his organization was renamed "The March of Dimes."
