How to Have the Most Productive Road Trip Ever

When my wife and I first figured out we would be making the 20+ hour drive from the mid-west to the Amish country of Lancaster County, we decided that this was going to be our most productive road trip ever.

We knew that the more things we could do along the way, the more productive the trip would be and the easier it would be for us to make the drive, especially the trek that seems like a million miles across Tennessee and Virginia.

I’m writing this article right now as my wife is driving us down the road and helping me brainstorm ideas for new articles…

15 Things You Should Buy From the Dollar Store

Dollar stores are interesting because they make their money by charging a dollar for everything.

So that means things that are typically $2 or $3 are only a dollar at the dollar store. That also means some things that are typically 50 cents are also a dollar at the dollar store.

Then there are stores like Dollar General, which isn’t really a dollar store at all, if you’re going off the “everything’s a dollar” idea. I suppose Dollar General just means everything is generally…close to a dollar, which is more accurate, but still a little shady if you ask me.

I want to be clear that this list is talking about dollar stores where everything is actually…*drum roll please*…a dollar. Dollar stores can save you money, but if you use them for all your shopping, you may be wasting some money.

Here are 15 things you should generally buy from the dollar store and some ways to save even more money…

Insurance Inflation: Why You Need to Pay Attention

I’m sure you know you should always read your insurance polices carefully.

Insurance companies like to make you think they are offering more coverage than they are. They also like to distract you from reading the fine print.

In fact, some insurance companies can completely drop your coverage just because you use it.

What?

That’s right, in certain states, insurance companies are allowed to drop you if you file a certain amount of claims within a certain time period. In several streets, you only have to make two claims before they can decide that you’re not worth it and drop you.

Those are all great reasons to watch your insurance company like a hawk, but we’re actually not here today to talk about insurance companies. Yes, be aware of all of those things, but there’s something else you need to be aware of and pay attention to: your health insurance.

Yes you need to check your coverage and read the fine print, but who you really have to watch is not the actual insurance company, it’s the places that take your insurance…
