Festival of Frugality #246 – Retirement Edition

Welcome to the Festival of Frugality #246! I hope everyone had a great weekend and I’m here to kick off your shortened week, which I think everyone is grateful for. I’m happy to be hosting for the first time since the Super Bowl, which was great and the reason why I’m back for more.

I just had my 1 year blogiversary, so while I’m pretty far behind some of my fellow bloggers, I’ve had a good run so far and will be continuing for the foreseeable future. In celebration, I’m hosting my biggest giveaway ever, with over $150 in cash and prizes, so check it out for a chance to win!

The edition of the festival will focus on some interesting facts and quotes on retirement. While I may feel like I’m ready to sit on the beach with no worries, I’m not quite there yet. Slowly but surely, right? Enjoy this week’s festival!

In my retirement I go for a short swim at least once or twice every day. It’s either that or buy a new golf ball. ~Gene Perret
