Cheaper Car Insurance = New Camera Time!
I have had the most organised week of my life, like, ever.
My mum’s on this whole organisation kick – seriously, her Pinterest is covered in meal planning, bullet journals, and SO many lists it’s unreal. And when she’s being organised, that means I have to be organised too. It started simple enough, just getting me to let her know what lunches I’m having so she can fit them into her meal planning, but on Friday it turned into a WHOLE EVENING of her teaching me about ‘financial responsibility’.
So guess who’s getting that new camera she was saving for?
Apparently the renewal for car insurance came round, and she wanted to go through it with me. Turns out, the policy I was on was pretty expensive, so we started looking around for cheaper ones. I’ve had a bit of money in my savings, and I was so worried I was going to have to take some of it to pay the deposit, but it turns out you can get very cheap car insurance no deposit needed! It’s a little bit more expensive each month, but we worked out the specifics and rather than have to spend a certain amount upfront, I can easily manage that little bit extra.
I mean, I’m not sure her expenses planning page, spreadsheet, list and assorted journal pages were necessary here, and despite her attempts I haven’t started up one myself, BUT we did work out that if we did it this way, I could get my camera next month, update my car insurance and have a little bit spare.
And, like I said, I’ve been super organised so that little bit spare isn’t being spent straight away. I haven’t decided on the next thing I want (unlike my mum, I don’t have my wishlist all written down in fancy handwriting!) but it’s nice to know that I won’t be starting completely from scratch this time.
Also, I’ll be honest, I didn’t actually know all that much about how car insurance worked and I do now – or at least, a bit more. I really wish they taught this sort of stuff in class, because much as I like to tease her, I don’t know what I’d do if my mum wasn’t willing to sit down and go through it all with me! Probably not be getting my new camera, that’s what. If you’re looking for cheap no deposit auto insurance I recommend checking out: http://www.verycheapcarinsurancenodeposit.com/
