Leap of Faith

January 18th, 2018 at 07:20 am

Mini Lofty Savings Goal Part I is fully funded! I am on to Part II of this goal with the same amount as Part I. This is an ongoing effort since we have big plans for this money.

I am going on a personal mission/mini vacation next month. I am hoping to visit a few towns/cities we are considering moving to in the near future. Winters in New Jersey really take a toll on my body, mind and soul and we feel it is time to consider a move to warmer pastures. Our children are now grown men with decent jobs and doing well for themselves and are very supportive of us. DS #1 is actually making the trip with me!We've given them the best life possible within our means. I am optimistic and feel that we are on the right track to make this happen.

I may add that we will have an income that will help sustain us while we settled. Hubby will a collect a small state pension and some other sources of income from rental properties. I will look for work once I am settled since I am ten years younger than my husband.

Any Floridians here? Any suggestions?

    How exciting to feel close to moving on to the next phase.

    What part of NJ are you in? I live in PA close to the NJ border (I used to be within a mile of it--and would buy gas there since NJ gasoline taxes are a lot less than PA's, but when I bought my house, I moved about 12 miles away from the border.

    How very wise of you to realize that cold winters take a toll. I wish you the best!

    Most publications like Kiplinger's, Money, and similar regularly prepare a list of excellent options for those considering retirement. They list the criteria they used, with focus on services and costs. Most libraries have back copies and it's interesting to rank the criteria used for those items important to you.
