7 Purchases Retirees Often Regret - AARP Article

Aloha Everyone,

This is an interesting AARP magazine article by Donna Fuscaldo

Some of us make a bucket list of travel destinations when we retire. Others make a bucket list of things to purchase.

1.  Boat
2.  Resort Living
3.  Recreational vehicles
4.  Dream House
5.  Giving to Adult Children
6.  Time Share
7.  Fancy Cars

As you know, the two of us sold our home in Hawaii and purchased a recreational vehicle (Honu) when we retired. For the past 8 years, this move made sense and worked out well.

David & Vicki, very good friends of ours, purchased a sailboat. David, an experienced sailor and his wife have sailed along the costal waters of the Atlantic Ocean, visited Caribbean islands, through Panama Canal and ventured to Portuguese and Spanish coasts. They have great sea adventures planned for the remainder of 2022 and beyond.

Here is a link to the article:
