Be a smart consumer when it comes to auto insurance



Lately I have been trying to come up with ways to save money in anyway I can. We are a one income family and I am ALWAYS on the hunt for a deal. It seems although the value of my house is not going up, and sometimes still going down, my property taxes are on the rise! It is always something isn't it?

One way to cut costs can be researching the right car insurance. Car insurance is a must in life (at least it is to my family) but at one point my little sister thought otherwise. My sister who was 17 years old at the time thought she couldn't afford car insurance. She was a student on a very small budget and thought not having car insurance would save her money. Well it did in the beginning she had no payments, well fast forward to about a year later and someone hit her car while it was parked! She was upset because the person left, without leaving a note or anything, she had no idea who had hit her poor car. So there she was with a dent in her car and nobody to pay for it. She had to decide if she wanted to pay out of her pocket or drive around with a big dent in the side of her car. It can be a tough choice on a small budget. She eventually saved the money and 9 months later she was able to fix her car. She was obviously upset and wished she had just sucked it up and made the payments for car insurance. One way to save is to look into cheap affordable car insurance to see how much you can really cut down your costs. There are ways out there to be able to cover your assets, you just have to do the research.
