If you’re the kind of shopper who does a lot of homework before making a purchase, you’re going to love Boomer Buyer Guides!

My wife and I recently joined the ranks of the semi-retired and although we did relatively well for ourselves in our working years, we are aware that our hard earned savings are something we need to protect, invest and spend wisely.  It’s not unusual for me to spend many hours sifting through product reviews, comparing prices and generally over-thinking everything before I commit to a purchase – especially if it’s an expensive one.

I can’t tell you how many rabbit holes I’ve fallen into and how much time I’ve wasted while doing my research. I have to admit that it can be kind of fun for me – sometimes. I also have to admit that I’ve made my share of bad buying decisions.
