What are you "saving" it for Bernard? Shirl and I decided last year that we were going to stop the saving idea and just start "spending". Hopefully our last cheque to the funeral home will bounce!!
We save it for travelling. Last year we've been on a cruise in China for a month. The year before, we went to France to bring back some Bordeaux wine I had bought years ago. I paid $11-12 a bottle back then and they were worth over $250 each when we brought some back. They were stored in a friend's wine cellar for something like 10 years. After that we went in England to visit some friends in Nottingham followed by a visit to Liverpool where I attended an international conference on Jack the Ripper. Of course, we went for a Beatle's tour.
We moved around on the east coast with our 11 meter motor home. (see picture)
This coming June we will be in Russia on a VIP cruise. We've already planed our next trip in Italy for a month.
So basically we're saving money to spend it in world travelling. LOL
And we still have some money left to buy a house if we decide spend more time in Canada than Mexico.
