Is Food Eating Into Your Carolina Retirement?


Is Food Eating Into Your Carolina Retirement?How we spend our money on food may change in retirement. So make sure food is part of your Carolina retirement planning.

Other than taxes, healthcare, transportation and mortgage payments, there are plenty of areas you control affecting your bottom line in retirement.

I must admit one of the top 5 things that I love is FOOD!

I love great restaurants and I love to cook.

I know I have but, have you ever thought about what a large expense food is?

Some questions you need to ask are:

  • Do you shop at the high-end store and buy only organic produce?
  • Have you found a great little farm stand where you save a lot on produce?
  • Do you wait for sales at your favorite food store and stock up?
  • Do you head to a restaurant every time your stomach growls?

If your anything like me, you may have developed expensive tastes while you were working.

One thing I know for sure is that if  I expect my money to last into a long retirement, I may have to re-evaluate and make part of my Retirement Planning how good that $29 filet really tastes.

But more to the point is while finding your best place to retire in North Carolina or South Carolina, remember your eating habits and even the vision you have is part of your Retirement Planning.

Does your vision include being able to go out to dinner?  If so, make sure your best place to live has plenty of restaurants you can afford and you will enjoy.

Also make sure the food stores in your best place are ones that will support how you like to eat without breaking the bank.

Remember the goal is to find Your Best Place to retire in North Carolina or South Carolina!
