It is a very humbling experience to visit with my financial advisor. I went in for my annual visit today. It is much like going to the OBGYN or dentist. The office staff is very nice and accommodating. That age old question hangs in the air. Will my money last? I am on a fixed income, however often times I would use broke to describe my budget. But it is what it is...
So I decided to go shopping. Shopping is one of my least favorite pass times, but while I was thinking about money, I decided to buy some fall clothes.
I have spent many years deciding what I can do without, and I must say, I have become very frugal. While I don't live in the lap of luxury, I live a very good life. I live in a house that is less than 1,000 square feet, that has everything I need. I lovingly refer to my house as the box. The best part of the box is that it is paid for.
I have a loving family, and spend the majority of my time and my money enjoying life with them. God is good.
