Life at Age 55 in the United States

Did you know in the United States when you reach 55 years old, you're consider a senior citizen?

Certain stores provide a discount when you shop at their store example in Seafood City Supermarket it is 12% from your purchases on every Tuesday. Ross Dress for Less Store every Tuesday is 10% off your purchase.

I always say that is easy you schedule some at lunch and dinner this way you can see everyone all in one time just that you are juggle yourself in between the day. My calendar is filled up from Monday to Sunday no time to waste time because when you visit your only have one month to spend quality time with everyone you know. The problem I have when someone is unable to make it for prior notice it is difficult to switch them with someone else because everyone is busy with work or family obligation. Sometimes I have to combine some of my friends at the same time as long as they know each other it is easy this way and you are not wasting time. I always plan ahead once I have already booked my airfare and know the actual date I will be arriving and returning back home.
