Car Insurance

October 3rd, 2012 at 07:50 am

The monthly charge for my car insurance came out today. It is $30 more than usual. I called to ask about it and was told that there was an across the board increase in uninsured motorist. I don't want to drop that so I guess I will just pay it. I also asked about taking ExDH off the policy. It would raise my premium by almost $1000. So for now he is staying on it.

Didn't stop for breakfast today. So that is day 2 of not eating out.

Called to get an estimate on how much it is going to be to remove DD's wisdom teeth. It starts at $405 per tooth. Plus the office visit of $90 and the anestia(?). So we are looking at about $2000. I am going to change my direct deposit so that $100 per pay day goes into my online savings account. Right now I only have $50 going into it. It won't give me all the money but it will be a good start.

    UUggghhh. You are having an expensive healthcare year too! I hope it all slows down at some point.

    Sorry to hear about the insurance increase. Never fun, but better than a $1K increase. What else can you sell to help you save for the dental work?

    I'd be quite upset if our insurer abruptly increased rates

    $ 360. is a big increase. I suggest you call an insurance broker to see if you can get a better rate based on vehicle, drivers & age, history & different deductible amounts to compare $ 249. x 12 = $2,988 [all insurers use giant Re-Insurers like Berkshire Hathaway, Lloyd's, Re-Insurers of America etc.]

    Great job on the no breakfast out! Smile

    I didn't catch that your premium went up $30/MONTH...I'm so used to premiums every 6 months. I agree with snafu that it would be wise to at least check other rates. Many can be done online...think Geico and Progressive.
