Welcome to the Baby Boomer Super Saver blog!
I’m Kathy, the Baby Boomer Super Saver, and I write about creative ways to boost retirement savings and win at personal finance. I hope my writing inspires you to take steps toward your own financial freedom.
A little about me…
Who are Baby Boomers & where do I fit in?
I was born at the very tail end of the Baby Boomer generation, which includes babies born between 1946 and 1964. As a Trailing-Edge Boomer (born between 1956 and 1964) versus a Leading-Edge Boomer (born between 1946 and 1955), you know I’m beginning to get closer to retirement age.
Well, my official retirement age according to Social Security is still off in the distance a bit. But what if I wanted to leave my job early to just, well, enjoy life and travel?
Do you retire at a set age, or once you reach a financial number?
Not too long ago, I began to wonder if my husband and I would ever have enough money to comfortably retire. You see, like many Boomers, we hadn’t saved enough.
I started this blog to connect with other Boomers who are looking for tips to increase savings, take advantage of retirement catch-up strategies, and maximize efforts to reach financial independence by living a richly frugal lifestyle. Along the way, I’ll also share my ideas about staying healthy to enjoy retirement once you get there!
There are a lot of us Boomers, and I believe we are all in this together. Join the conversation – you will find ideas and encouragement for supercharging your retirement savings and creating your own ideal retirement!
I’m excited that you are here and look forward to your comments. When you share your thoughts with me and the rest of our community, you are a part of something big that helps us all to win!
