I wish I had enough money to invest in big ways. I wish I had enough for a retirement account. I wish, I wish, I wish… How about you?
Even though I have more money now than when the girls were growing up, I seem to have less. Does that make sense? Things cost so much more than they used to. I have less bills but pay more; less food but spend more. Doesn’t seem fair. I thought I’d be spending so much less when the girls moved out that I’d have extra money to invest. I was wrong.
I know there isn’t a lot of time left to save for retirement. If I even get to retire. Who knows? I’m hoping to, but people are working longer now than they used to. What happened to those happy golden years I used to hear about?
This year one of my financial goals is to do some research on how I might be able to invest just a little here and there. These actions may not make a huge difference for me during my retirement, but every little bit really does help. I’m not looking to break the bank or anything, just for ways where I can put away a few dollars here and there. Ways I might not really notice so much.
Do you invest in little ways? I’d like to know how this is working out for you. I’ve read about a few ways this is possible, and will be looking into those ways further. I’ll give (an) update(s) later in the year about what I learn.
Is it time for you to think about how to invest for your future?
Happy New Year!
