Thursday Thrifty Tip: Home Owner's/Car Insurance

Remember those commercials when a random person comes out of the "scene" and says, "Hey, I just saved ... on my car insurance!" Well, I feel like announcing to you all, the blogging world, that I just "saved $4.73/month on my car insurance".

(Echo. Echo.) OK, most of you are thinking..."seriously you are switching car insurance for $4.73/month?" Listen...I didn't say I was thrifty and frugal for nothing. Every dollar and penny is valued in our home even if is less than $5.

But the real value is that because I'm switching my car insurance to my home owner's insurance I reap a discount...15% on my home insurance. Together I will be saving $112.50 a year on my two policies. (Now that is starting to add up!)

Being thrifty is a daily duty for me, not just something that is an afterthought. Every decision affects our household budget whether it is simply leaving a light on to more complex concepts like changing insurance policies. We make our money work for us...inside of thinking what we could do if we made more.

Your philosphy is important, especially in this economy where making more money isn't always an option! Thanks for another tip!
