Hello everyone, I am 48 going on 25. I am here to learn from you.

Just wanted to say hello and meet some really nice people. I want to retire at age 55 if I can. I am going to be asking a lot of questions for you experts to answer.

Welcome. But if you're 48 going on 25 you'll never get to 55, didn't you see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button?

Cutting a dryer sheet in half is something I would do. Maybe I am not as confused as I thought I was.

I save even more by not even buying dryer sheets. I will have to search the forum to see what good money saving tips I can find. I have only 7 years more in the rat race.
