When you’re young you tend to never worry about the future too much. Retirement planning seems to be the one that most often comes up. I will say that planning for my retirement actually is something I started early.
As I kid I can’t tell you the number of times that I saw on the news that the politicians were changing how Social Security was going to work because it wasn’t generating enough money to stay solvent by the 21st century. I kind of took that to heart, and along with the lack of life insurance my grandfather left my grandmother when he passed away, and started putting money aside as soon as I started working after college (well, technically I was still in college but only had another couple of months). Anyway, I made it a priority to fund my retirement, though not always to my full satisfaction, at every employer I’ve had. I’ve been lucky that I’ve never been involuntarily out of work, and every employer has had a funded retirement plan plus I’ve invested in supplementary retirement plans. If SS is still around when I retire that’ll just be a bonus.
No, the thing that caught my eye today was an article on traveling with ostomy supplies.
