This was a fun month. We actually made extra money. However, in a freak weather event both of our cars sustained substantial hail damage. I’ve never even seen hail before until this happened. It was so random, and cost us about $1000 in deductibles to get our cars repaired. So, we pulled some from saving, which we already had for miscellaneous car costs and used some of our extra income for the rest. So, while we could have hit 10%, I’ll take 9% and my dent free car.
**Call your insurance company and make sure you have comprehensive coverage if you have a remotely decent car. This covers hail damage, random things falling on your car like a tree or light post and other freak occurrences. Just as an FYI, the hail damage on both of our cars would have cost us $8,000 without coverage. So, yes, that extra $5 on your monthly car insurance bill is probably worth it. You learn something new everyday right?
