I am hoping to retire in 5 years, on a reduced pension, to live on the east coast. To achieve this goal I am blogging about saving money, paying off debt and getting rid of a lifetime's accumulation of stuff which hopefully will keep me motivated.  I am a single parent, and a teacher so life keeps me pretty busy but I love to write and I love to read, and I am hoping to find some kindred spirits here at BlogHer. My blog is called: Life Begins at Retirement.
