Save Some Money on Auto Insurance

A good way to save some extra money is by making sure you have the lowest prices on your car insurance possible. Compare prices periodically and check to see if there is a more affordable plan than your current one. One of the easiest things to do is get online and compare insurance plans and companies, and get instant quotes. You may find that that you can get a better more affordable plan than what you currently have. And when you save money on car insurance, you can actually make money as well. The trick is in self-discipline. Calculate your savings with the lower insurance plan as compared to your old insurance plan, and put that difference in a savings account. Then not only have you saved money, you have made money as well. And will continue to do make money with the interest on the savings.

And there are tips to keep in mind that may help you lower you car insurance costs even more. For example, did you know that you may get a lower quote on your coverage if you have automatic seat belts and/or air bags in your car? Or that raising your deductible is that your insurance premium will go down by as much as 20% to 30% on the comprehensive and collision coverage part of your policy? Some companies may offer discounts for certain features such as anti-lock brakes. Discounts may be available for having things like a good driving record, defensive driver training discounts, more than one car, anti-theft or tracking devices, car alarms, other policies with the same company and more. So be sure to check out all possible ways to save on your car insurance policy befor you buy.

How to Save $10,000 This Year

I first posted this last Jan. (2011)- thought it was worthwhile posting again this year! Also, I mistakenly entered $24.40 in the original post as the amount to save each day-the correct amount is $27.40. 

Yes, you can save (or make--depending on how you look at it!) $10,000 by the end of this year, and it is really pretty easy.

Save $27.40 each day, and after 365 days, you will have saved $10,001 dollars.

Of course, since we are now about 14 days in to Jan., you will need to adjust that savings a bit- but still, you get the gist, right?

And if you save $10 a day, you can still have $3,650.

How about $5 a day? That will give you a nice savings of $1,825.

How to save money each day? Here are a few ideas:

Skip the take-out lunch--make peanut butter and jelly snadwiches

2.. Make a Halloween Decoration. Cover a soup can in black construction paper or fabric. Add some cut out eyes. For wings, color a paper plate black, Cut the plate in half. For each half, cut scalloped edges along one side, then glue "wings" to the side of the "bat can."

And a few more easy ways to recycle empty soup cans:

3. Use a nail and hammer to poke hole sin the bottom of sop cans and use as herb planters. Place a plastic lid under can to prevent rust stains.
4. Make Candlesticks (great tutorial from "Me Making Do")
5. Make a Flower-Shaped Cookie Cutter.
