Have you ever looked at the fees you pay monthly in various bank accounts? What are you doing to minimize fees, or what on average are you paying? Have you ever reviewed options to reduce or eliminate fees? This includes chequing, savings, credit cards, trading accounts, etc.

I have one bank-issued debit and one bank-issued travel mastercard, .. zero bank fees. I keep all loyalty points cards on a sto-card app on my phone. I never carry cash and put everything through the credit card except household bills to maximize our travel points. I totally resist taking on any extra retail credit cards, which are all cleverly marketed to make you spend only on their stuff. I bike or walk everywhere locally 95% of the time, putting on an average of 15-20 kms/day. We haven’t put gas in our car since March (4 months ago). I like to keep it real simple these days. You?

Welcome, and thanks for visiting RetirementCalm. This is a forum where personal insights, experiences, resources, and inspiration will be shared for individuals saving and retiring in Canada. Many of the underlying principles are applicable to everywhere in the world, but I’ll be discussing Canadian government programs and talking in CAD when posting. The plan is to post a BLOG monthly, and generate discussion or feedback from members. I want to make clear, I am not a Financial Advisor. In 2008, I adopted a DIY approach to investing and never looked back. I continued to manage my own transition to retirement and finances in the decumulation phase. BLOGs and websites are a very new experience for me, and I’m learning as I go. I have been testing various aspects of the platform, and making changes almost daily as a result. As I poke around, I can see I have a lot to learn. Please feel free to subscribe or check back regularly, as things will evolve as I learn. Thanks in advance for your patience.
