How to Save Money on Insurance

Insurance Companies reel you in - 
I stuck with one car insurance business for 5 or 6 years, thinking that loyalty meant something, but all they ever did was raise my rate each year. Now we stalk out several insurance companies every 6 months. Its a huge PITA, but when you save $100 a month, it is well worth it.

What is making this process easier and easier?
Simple. The internet. Now you can check rates in your spare time, any time of the day! No more pesky phone calls and being put on hold and having to try to negotiate. Plus if you think someone might decrease their price you can print off the online estimates and show them. Ask them to do better than that or you will switch.

I just checked 2 other big name insurance places, and right now StateFarm Esurance is $46 cheaper per 6 months than the others! See if it works for you too! Try out StateFarm Esurance

Puritan's Pride - B2G3 FREE + Deal on Kid's gummy vitamins

Right now, at Puritan's Pride you can stock up on Kids multi-vitamins!! Instead of the normal BOGO sale... The kid's gummies are Buy 2 Get 3 FREE!!! That is 5 bottles of vitamins for $19.98! The chewable ones are even cheaper! Schedule them to come every few months and shipping is FREE!

Candles with REAL Jewels!

Reminder - Buy a beautiful candle, or waxbeads and as it burns down, there is a ring inside!!! And not a tacky dollar store ring, not that that is a bad thing if you are into that... but a potentially very valuable ring that could become an heirloom!

Check out JewelScents HERE! And once get to the site, you get a FREE $5 to use on your first purchase!! My first order was only $22.25 SHIPPED!!! And they knocked off an additional 10% for my first order! Did you get the same deal?

Amazon - FREE Quinoa cookbook

Amazon has The Quinoa Cookbook available as a free ebook today. It has a high 4.5 out of 5 star rating from over 70 customers, and normally sells for $8.99.

My favorite recipe that rocks with Quinoa as opposed to Rice is Williams-Sonoma Chickpea & Sweet Potato Curry... so good!

There’s little wonder why quinoa–a gluten-free, superfood rich in protein and antioxidants–has transformed from obscure ancient seed into modern culinary staple. While quinoa has become well known, what is lesser known is that the grain-like food, often referred to as the perfect protein, can be incorporated into practically any recipe from breakfast to dessert. Fortunately, that’s where The Quinoa Cookbook: Nutrition Facts, Cooking Tips, and 116 Superfood Recipes for a Healthy Diet enters the story.
