Preparing for a Life with Less Income
I am planning to retire in the next three to five years. I have been thinking a lot about making sure I am in the best financial situation possible. I realized that it is really my second time planning to live on less income. 35 years ago I left the workforce to raise my family. That was temporary; this is probably going to be permanent. A lot of the things I did then to prepare for less income I am doing now.
Struggling with my Small Budget
I have been working hard on my credit score. I had bad vision up until yesterday when I got my glasses. I was able to read the fine print on some bills. I went to read the billing statements and found the interest rates horrible.
Using Coupons at Dollar Stores
To save some money at the dollar store, keep an eye out for coupons you can use when you shop there. This is a guide about using coupons at dollar stores.
Getting Out of Debt
This guide is a guide about getting out of debt. Consumer debt is at all time highs and the interest on carrying large amounts of debt is very expensive. Carrying less debt is something that every household should strive for.
How to Save Money By Paying With Cash
This is a guide about how to save money by paying with cash. There are numerous benefits to not purchasing items on credit. We are surrounded by constant incentives to use credit, but just avoiding interest fees help you save money.
Using Video Streaming Services Instead of Cable TV
This is a guide about using video streaming services instead of cable tv. Cable is expensive, but there are some ways you can save money. One option is to switch to a streaming service to watch your favorite shows. Netflix and Hulu are just some of the services out there. Here is some advice if you are thinking about cancelling cable.
Ask to Waive Late Charges
Once in awhile we make mistakes and may forget to pay our bill(s). Then, the upcoming bill a late fee penalty will be charged. The penalty fee varies depending on the bill, but for my internet bill I accidentally forgot to pay and the fee was $9.
Reducing Credit Card Debt
Many of us use a credit card for online purchases, bill pay, or when we go out so we have some fraud protection. Throw in a major auto repair or medical expense and it can be easy to start running a balance. It's easy to feel resigned to being in debt but with proper planning you can get your credit cards under control.
Don't Be Shy Using Coins and Coupons
I used to be really nervous when I am in line with coupons or if I take slightly longer at the register to pay. I just didn't want to be "that" person everyone would be angry at. I would opt to use my credit card just so I don't have to fidget with cash and coins.
Cashing In Pocket Change
My husband won't spend change, so we wind up with piles of change on his dresser. Every so often, I'll take it to Coinstar in our grocery store. I found that I can turn the coins into an Amazon e-coupon, for free. I just cash in the coins and then add the code to my Amazon account.
Take Advantage of Senior Discounts
My parents have a list of shops in their area that offer senior discounts. Some are valid every day, some are one day a week, some are one day a month. The discounts can vary from 10 to 25 percent off, and most don't require you to sign up for a free membership.
Free Museum Admission with Bank of America
If you bank or have a credit card with Bank of America, every first full weekend of every month you can take advantage of complimentary/free general admission to select museums, gardens, aquariums in the United States.
BC/BS Coverage and Medicare Part B
Does my coverage thru the Federal Government allow me to delay Medicare Part B so that I can also use TriCare? I'm reading that my coverage with the Blues will allow me to delay enrolling in Part B, but it is unclear if this means I can still use TriCare.
Sharing Expenses With Girlfriend
I have been living with my girl for 4 months; her mom kicked her out so I told her she could come stay with me. I have roommates so I have to hide her or I would get kicked out of the house.
Sharing Living Expenses with Girlfriend
My girlfriend and I have been together ever since 1993. Back in 2016 we decided to live in an apartment together. Back then I was making quite a bit more than she was so I was coming up with the rent. Now the rent is quite a bit higher and I don't know how to approach her.
Blue Cross Blue Shield (FEHB) and Medicare
I am 60 years (Dec.) and would like to get a better understanding on my options before the time to make changes to my BCBS/FEHB Standard Self +1 being my secondary insurances and Medicare being my primary and which of the other options best fits me.

How do I live on a Social Security budget?
Finding Jobs On-line
We had to close our family bussines due to economic problems. I have been trying to find a job, but for the moment it is difficult, so I have been trying even to find an online job, but most of them are fake or the best ones are unavailable for my country Albania.
