Cost-Cutting Ideas for Seniors

A penny saved is a penny earned, no matter how old you are! Even seniors can be discount-savvy, and there are plenty of ways for seniors to make the most of the resources they have.

Order medication in bulk – A 90-day supply of a prescription is often much less than hitting the pharmacy each month.

Eat bananas – One of the least expensive fruits is also high in potassium, which lowers blood pressure naturally.

Get online – Seniors can take advantage of the web to find great pricing on items like vitamins and bandages, or to purchase used items locally on Craigslist.

Borrow, don’t buy – The local library can be an excellent resource for books, DVDs, and even exercise videos, and it’s already subsidized with tax dollars.

Be a skeptic – At the doctor, always get an explanation of every test and procedure. Always ask: Is it necessary?

Go for a walk – This simple, cost-effective workout lowers the risk of disability and many other health problems!
