In today's world, it is really important to save as much of your money as humanly possible. When you get older, you're going to want to have your money and be able to use it for leisure and living while not working nearly as hard. That's why savings are never a bad thing and when you do get up in age, those senior discounts will help you continue to save long into life. It's time for a list of as many senior citizen discounts as you can think of.

A man named Steve Herman posted a list on Facebook back in August of 2013, and it was recently brought to attention again. It started circulating within the past month, and it really is something that everyone needs to know.

When it comes time for you to be in the category of a senior citizen, you've got to know where your discounts are coming from and where you can save your money.

Herman said he was behind an older man at Wendy's and heard him ask for his senior citizen discount. Personally, I've heard it asked for at McDonald's and Denny's and even in supermarkets all the time, but never put it into perspective.

Well, before you know it, we're all going to be over the age of 55 and needing to take advantage of the awesome senior citizen discounts available. You can always ask for your senior citizen discount and the worst that can happen is they tell you that they don't have one.

For those that feel embarrassed to ask if there is one, here is a list to get you started. You've still got to tell them to apply it though.
