The unstable economy has hit senior citizens harder than any other population. Individuals who put away retirement monies when they were younger are finding that their savings are not lasting as long as they had planned. As investments spend down, many seniors are living on a fixed income and have to make difficult choices about their spending priorities. Seniors living in Louisville are looking for other ways to make their budgets work. Rather than increasing income, they are taking advantage of senior discounts including car insurance, restaurants, groceries, department stores, education, prescription drugs, and much more.
Food is one of the biggest expenses for seniors living on fixed incomes. These Louisville grocery stores help out with senior discounts:
