Retirement is looming large! What’s the best way to approach it? Obviously, the basics must be dealt with – finances, healthcare, and “what do I do with all that time.”
Presumably, you’ve got things you’d like to do with your new abundance of time – spend it with the grandkids, travel and see some of the places that you haven’t gotten to yet, learn a new __________ (fill in the blank: language, skill, sport, craft, culture . . .), devote more time to your hobby, share your skills and experience, or perhaps, you’d just like to “veg” for a bit before getting serious about retirement.

Living in Mexico, as we do, is a viable option especially in the circumstance of diminished resources because living in Mexico is much cheaper than living in the US or Canada!
If you haven’t done it yet, check out our budgeting tools, the Cost of Living Chart and the two interactive budget forms, the Estimate Budget Form and the Budget Planner Form on the Budget Forms page. But, bear in mind that the budgeting process using our forms does not include insurance protection of any kind, nor does it include any regular monthly payments (credit card, auto loan, mortgage), so you will have to factor them into your personalized budget using our “beginning” budget as a starting point.
