This blog is about saving so we cant forget about the senior citizens discount……
For all the middle aged older people out there.
I didnt know that when I turned 55 I could get senior discounts at some places,
Yea,I’m an oldie,I know.With all the other signs of aging dragging me down,this might be a plus.
I sure can’t do what I used to, but I am not ready for my rocking chair yet,I still have some pep in my step.
I might as well grin and bear it and go on.I might just enjoy these discounts.
