Interesting article about retirement and preparation for it. Something I did that paid big dividends, was two years prior to retiring I researched how much I would bring in from social security, pensions and investments, even down to figuring how much I could bring in without paying taxes. It took time, but was kind of a fun exercise. Then, I made a retirement budget and started living on that budget two years prior, banking the excess. The transition to retirement was seamless when the time came and the extra savings enabled me to put off taking social security so soon. It really worked! As a person who loves camping, I was interested in that article but disappointed that they focused on the west. We have many beautiful national parks and campgrounds in the east also. However, this motivated me to do my own research and find great campgrounds in and around our national parks in the east! It’s always disappointing to see retail stores closing some locations. As one who must ‘try on,’ this is a scary prospect because the stores I shop at probably won’t be far behind the ones mentioned. Online shopping absolutely does not work for me, so this is not welcome news.
Pam, great articles! I can’t wait to try that roasted corn. It’s interesting to see what millennials and boomers agree on about fashion. And a Marilyn line at JCP could be fun. Happy Wednesday!
Well, another day of fun information. I think my favorite is the costal home in Maine. That porch is a place I would never want to leave. It is so sad that so many stores are closing, as I am another one for actual shopping. There have been too many upsetting choices, and returns, that I do not shop online for much anymore, I like to be able to see and feel the actual item. Getting the right fit in stores is hard enough, and the colour differences on screen, another problem, so I will be one of the few who still shops in stores, be it retail or thrift.
That’s some roundup of articles! I flipped through many of them but the piece about store closings caught my attention. I hate to see retailers closing and really wonder what will become of the malls. I’m not a fan of ordering online and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been disappointed with my Amazon purchases only to return them. I’ve come to rely on Talbots and Chico’s where I can return to the store without a problem but even then I would much rather try on. I took my 2 granddaughters shopping a month ago and at 9 & 10 this was a unique experience for them. Mom orders everything online & they don’t get to actually ‘shop’. We had a ball and their eyes popped out of their heads in the Nordstrom shoe department when the girls got to see some $1800 Louboutin sparkling red heels. But I realized how valuable the lessons I acquired as a young girl shopping with my grandmother were when she would treat me to a day of shopping and lunch in the big Abraham & Strauss in NY. I learned social skills and of course mathematical ones when she would ask me to add up how much everything I wanted was.
I’m looking forward to treating my granddaughters with these shopping excursions in the future even though it’s slim pickings out there right now but who else will teach them about life after Target & Old Navy?? As my grandkids love to chime “Nana to the rescue!”.
I hate to see some of those store closures featured in your article. My Banana Republic store closed last year (and it’s a go-to for gifts for my family), and my nearest Chicos closed at the same time (at least there is another one of those in a suburb across town). Even if you can order on line, it’s not the same experience and I find I do by less from stores that don’t have a “brick” store near me.
So disappointing about the closure of so many stores. I like to try things on as fit is so important. I enjoyed the article on millennials & baby boomers. I agree with most of the trends. I, too, wore miniskirts back in the day, but these days, I leave them to my twenty something granddaughters. Really beautiful house in Maine! Thank you for working to finds these articles.
