Amazing Lunch Dates Can Help You Save For Retirement

Last week Pete and I decided to have a lunch date outside the office. We never seem to have the same day available without appointments so we celebrated with a fun lunch.

It was amazing! Just the change of scenery was enough to trigger some new creative ideas for our office and our businesses… but the really great thing was that we got to spend some time together. We talked about the past, our goals and the future. 

We are really excited about the future… but we are a little perplexed how fast life has been flying by. We will have a college student in 3 1/2 years. It’s shocking for me to think that she will be in college so soon. It also made me realize how important it’s going to be that we have a good amount of savings to pay for her college education and for her sisters too!


As we were eating lunch I realized that there were a lot of little things we could do to save for college or retirement. I’m all for getting a good deal and saving money the old fashion way of budgeting and spending wisely, but I do like to eat out at restaurants… so why not earn some money back when I do it.

  • That is really neat about Upromise! Nice that you two could enjoy a nice lunch date as well! Food looks delicious!

  • I’ve used Upromise since my daughter was a baby. She’s in college now! Time flies!

  • I don’t know about this saving plan, but I do love going on dates with my wonderful hubby . Our 44th anniversary is in August ! Make sure a weekly date is part of life.

  • Yay for lunch dates! We are a little ways off from college, but I know that it will come sooner then I am ready for. =) Upromise is a great idea.
