In Response to Re: Senior Discounts : Renee, re: keeping track of your savings/spending each month, I do the same and have for about 30 years. Also about 5 years ago I started actually taking the savings I accumulated from using coupons at the grocery store and I buy savings bonds with that money. My store receipt shows the savings from double coupons, I get that amount of cash and put it aside until I have enough to buy a bond. Some months I need to dip into my cash, but usually I can hang onto it. It's amazing how much $$$ I've saved! I'm going to use the bonds to help my sons pay for their weddings...if that ever happens! lol lol

I love the idea of buying a savings bond with your savings.  It is a simple thing but they are an easy way to save.
I used to have CD's (certificates of deposit) when the rates were much better a ( 
long long long long long) time ago.  When the rates fell I purchased savings bonds.  You just have to make note as to when they stop earning interest then cash in or buy another.

Awesome!  They all add up just like loose change! (We save change in a jug and roll it regularly!  Wow does that silver coinage come in handy at times!) Once every couple of months Mike takes our rolls to the bank and gets bills for them.  That cash then goes into our safe for use during hurricane season if the need arises (one can not get cash out of an ATM if there is no power)!  If we don't use the cash during the hurricane season it then becomes a little Christmas Club fund so to speak!

at 65 my best discount came when my county taxes were reduced to 0.00 except for the emergency district (fire and ambulance)      and my school taxes were reduced by more than 50%

like nikki my garbage co reduced the rate             but we have three choices here    and about 7 yrs ago i chose to go with a start-up co  who did not offer one          but did provide one of those large cans       and only pickup once a week for roughly the same fee
the old co wrecked my cans constantly  ran over lids   and the dogs constantly kept a mess
with the bigger flip over can  the dogs can't touch it
i take my loose change when my 3# coffe can gets full down to kroger---------they have one of those machines that count it   and if you take it on a kroger gift card    there's no fee      i use the card and put the cash away for the next casino

Just in case I might have missed it in the original post, I wanted to share a Restaurant Discount for Seniors that my mom discovered the other day when we dined out one night.

TGI Friday's Restaurants (Senior beverage discount on Coffee .99 cents). Free refills on the coffee also. Next time you dine out @ TGI Friday's Restaurants, ask them for the "Senior Coffee".
