Simply Affordable

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”  Leonardo da Vinci
The anticipation of life in retirement on a fixed income is a humbling experience.  But seeking out more simplicity in retirement is more than just living comfortably on what you have saved.  Thoreau went into the Walden Woods to try and live as simply and as richly as he could.  It seems that those contemplating retirement could also benefit from getting into this state of mind.  We each get to define a retirement lifestyle for ourselves.  If we can shed unwanted costs and some of the things we have gathered over the years our lives can become more meaningful in other ways.

As our lives progress, we create a family, gather friends and build relationships.  These are surely the richness of life.  Unfortunately, we also accumulate a lot of stuff like a home or two, vehicles, boats, RV’s, furniture, clothing, and keepsakes.  While these things help us to enjoy our family, friends, and relationships, they can also be a burden when we want to make a move into a new home or lifestyle.
It seems that more people in their middle years (if they haven’t already) start to seek out more purpose and/or find opportunities to give back.  A simpler life, home and finances provide the freedom of time and money to be more purposeful when you have more time to make the most out of life.

A more physically and financially manageable place to live is key to achieving that goal of finding more freedom in your life.
At Jensen communities, we can help with a Simply Affordable Home in an outstanding neighborhood.
