You might not know this, but since 2011 there are about 10,000 baby boomers all over the world that are turning 65.
Spending money more wisely
The baby boomers generation is spending money more wisely that the newer generations. This is because of the time that they were born in. Just after World War II, most US people were struggling and money was something that not every household had.
So, they learned to save up money. And, make sure that they don’t spend money on things that they don’t really need. No, they are not cheap, but the baby boomers make sure that they have money to be able to live after retirement.
