In Response to Re: Senior Discounts:
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

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!
