Tips On Getting A Great Deal On Car Insurance
1. Shop often. Check out several different insurance companies every two to three years. Maybe your situation has changed—say you’re driving fewer miles, which can lower your premium a little.

Perhaps you have some in your home safe, some in drawers in the bedroom, others in the den and more in the office. What happens when you become sick or die? Does any one person know where all the documents are located? Probably not, including you. The Wall Street Journal published a very interesting article, The 25 Documents You Need Before You Die, addressing just this problem.
