If you celebrate Thanksgiving, then I hope you are able to enjoy some time with friends and family over the coming days. That is exactly the reason why I’m posting this a bit early, because I’ll be on the road starting Wednesday and traveling hundreds of miles while I make the rounds to visit family. Rather than try to write new content for the rest of the week or try to find guest posts, I’m going to instead link to some of the things I’ve written in the past. The site has been going strong for over a year now, and I’ve never really dug into the archives to revive old topics. So, go ahead and digest the 4,000 calories you just ate and undo the belt, but make it all worthwhile by taking a trip through the archives.

It is Amazing What Some People Will Insure While Ignoring Their Most Important Asset – I find it ironic how many people will jump at the chance to spend a few hundred bucks to insure the new $2,000 TV they bought, yet won’t insure their life or ability to earn an income even with a spouse and/or children.
There’s More to Auto Insurance Than Meets the Eye – Nobody likes to pay for auto insurance, but it is just one of those things we have to do. By understanding what the different types of coverage mean, you can make sure you’re only insuring what you really need.
