So, I just got a bill in the mail for my car insurance. It is $611, and I just paid the freaking thing. I thought the last time I wrote a check that it was for the entire year, so I couldn't figure out why the heck they would send me another bill already. I was all set to start googling my insurance company and scams.

Turns out, I have a policy that renews every 6 months... Grrr....

Anyway, I decided to do a little research to see if I was getting a good rate, and Shazam!!!! The first company I got a quote from was less than HALF of my current policy with the exact same coverage!!!!!

I totally feel like those dorky "I may be having a bad day, but I got a great rate on my car insurance" commercials. :

Yeah! We shopped around last year and saved about half on our home owners insurance and I felt the same way! :

Don't you love that? We had the same thing happen to us years back when I was trying to find extra money anywhere. We ended up paying 1/3 of what we were paying the other guy.
