Say what? It doesn't? I remember fondly how my parents would tell us that, when me and my brother wanted something that wasn't a necessity. I'm living by those standards now. So, in an effort to lower bills I used bill shrink for my mobile phone, and lowered my plan, It might not be a great amount but that amount is now able to be filtered into a different bill. So, that is one bill I shrunk.
What is another bill that can be lowered? Hmm, I got to thinking. I have no utilities, my netflix is on a temporary hold so that isn't a monthly bill I have to deal with at the moment. I miss my netflix though. My Tivo is paid through to October. I don't have a car payment and I am working on my medical bills with the Dr.'s office. Oh yeah you live in Minnesota, and if you have a car, you have to have Auto Insurance. So, I did a lower my bills and found out that by switching today I can save on my auto insurance. No it's not Geico, or Progressive. I found out that St. Farm had the cheapest bang for my buck. I also found out, that my previous auto insurance tacked on something that I didn't need and I never caught it because the codes are confusing and nothing was straight forward. Plus when I did notice, they said it would be removed but again never was. Which meant a nice insured driver could have hit me and I could be with a new car.
I have no accidents, or anything on my record now and a bad car. So, either way I met with an agent today and with the exact same coverage I was getting with AAA auto insurance, I would save 30-35 bucks a month, or I could go with what I thought I was getting and than some, and I can save over 40 bucks a month. Gee, I wonder who I decided to go with. So that is a lot of money I will end up saving, and I get for an extra dollar, towing, and other type of roadside assistance, instead of paying 50 a year, and I have to wait and use who they send out. I can use who I can get and it's covered. So, when they say St. Farm is there I think they mean it.
It's smart to use though sites, and compare your bills and see if they can be lowered. I bet one or more bills could be lowered and every cent counts. Because Money doesn't grow on tree's. So Shop around
