Money matters during retirement
I plan to retire in another 18 months when I'm 55 after 30 years in the same profession. My wife (am I allowed to use DW?) will continue to teach and so our income will not take a big hit until she also decides to call it quit. I have read articles about preparing for retirement that deals with financial matters. We have started to move some of our retirement savings into more conservative income producing investments (CDs, bonds, etc) that will supplement our retirement income.
I have a question for those who have been retired for at least several years. Do you find you have more than enough money at the end of the month that you go back into more risk-oriented financial vehicles, such as stocks and mutual funds? Or do you just continue the course and put what is left at the end of the month into a saving account?
