2 Lessons I Learned About Car Insurance

I recently had a learning experience with car insurance. Sometimes there are things in life that we just don’t think about because they aren’t significant. This is one of those times when it was in fact significant.

Check Your Zip Code

I recently moved to a new zip code and had to update my car insurance. Apparently the zip code can make a big difference in the amount you have to pay. How significant. My 6th month premium went up $1000. That was a big shocker and was a little scary since I have a wedding coming up and that wasn’t exactly in any budget. So the lesson is, when moving, be sure to get a quote with your new location so you can budget for any changes.

Ask Around

With that sticker shock I decided to shop around a little bit and they all pretty much had the same pricing. So I was just about to bite the bullet and continue with the same company. That’s when my fiancé came home and said she mentioned our little problem to a few co-workers and one of them mentioned to try the company they have their car insurance with. I thought I did get a quote from them but tried it nonetheless and low and behold it was $700 cheaper than what my current insurance company had quoted me. The lesson is to ask around to see other peoples experiences and shop around more than you think is enough.

So now I have more money in my pocket and a wedding on budget. What could be better? Now I need to start looking into life insurance.

Break Free From The 9 To 5 Grind

If you have full time employment, do you wake up full of enthusiasm for the next day – with an eagerness to get to your place of work? If you do, that’s fantastic, as you probably have found your true vocation. Sadly, for many of us, this simply isn’t the case. Work is a means to an end and the end is money that we can spend on a lifestyle that makes up for our lack of fulfilment at work.

When you consider your circle of friends and acquaintances, many may seem to have a very high quality of life. They earn a lot and spend a lot, which is all very well if the work they’re in is enjoyable. If not, it’s a fairly shallow existence to work all the hours possible so that they can spend it up at the weekend. Many people actually end up spending a lot at the weekend to get some satisfaction out of life that they’re not finding through their work. This means that the tie of work for the income becomes ever greater.

It’s not surprising then, that so many people are now in debt. Even those with great salaries tend to spend more than they can afford and then become slaves to their wages. If the income dropped, so would their standard and style of living.

If you find you’re working to simply to pay off debts, then maybe it’s time to reevaluate the way you spend. There is plenty of debt advice UK consumers can access online, and it can help to devise a debt management strategy to work your way clear of debt.

To get free from a nine to five existence you no longer enjoy, the first thing you need to do is clear the debt from your life. You can do this by using debt management plans, but also by reviewing how you spend your income. Do you really need to spend as much as you do on groceries, trips at the weekends, holidays?

Once you have got yourself into a position where you are living within your means, you can then decide if you want to stay on the treadmill of the job you have or look for a route to a more fulfilling occupation.
