One man’s retired life at 107

By

Read this article about how one 107-year-old man is spending his retirement.

He’s been retired since 1969! According to the article, he’s never made more than $10,000 in a year. I used this inflation calculator to estimate how much $10k then would be worth today: $60,813.

Oh. Ok, so that sounds like a pretty good living. But still!

This man and his wife tried to life a thrifty lifestyle and avoid debt as much as they could. He also bought and sold 35 houses in his lifetime, always making at least a little profit.

He’s a good example for us all.

  1. Wow. That’s pretty remarkable. $10K a year doesn’t seem like an awful lot but hey…

I hope I can inspire and encourage you to improve your situation. See disclosure.
