Links about making sure you can fund your retirement

Here are some great links to help all of us continue on with thinking and talking about how to fund our retirements.

The Power of Saying "No" to Preserve Your Retirement Bucksome Boomer post really makes a great point about not sacrificing your own retirement to pay for adult children's (or siblings) wants and needs now.

I also hope you will check out this great post at Satisfying Retirement - How to Mess up a Retirement

  1. Both very good leads. Thank you. I might add that giving parents permission to "protect" their retirement is really what they need to hear right now. Adult children will not resent on getting what they never had so parents need to start early weaning the "babies" so they can fly on their own.

  3. Thanks for the links. We still treat our kids and grands but they understand that it's just treats they are off the payroll so Mom and Dad can stay off their payroll in old age!! Ha
