Ten Ways to Simplify your Life and Lower Debt

Written by Dian Herdiana on 6:56 AM

You should shop for quality insurance. Ask your friends for their recommendations. Do they like their insurance representative? Does the insurance agent seem to be responsive to their needs? Is the agent easy to contact? How long have they had this agent handling their insurance?

Determine your real needs. What types of insurance will you need in retirement? Consider medical, dental, free or low cost coverage. Look at your medical bills and see the types of services you were charged for? Do you anticipate needing surgery or more heath care?

Get several quotes. Even if a company is recommended by a friend or relative, you might want to get at least three quotes so you can make a comparison of the services and fees. Check the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website for any complaint. Also check the rating of the insurance company. Among the commonly-known rating financial agencies are Moody's and Standard & Poor's.

Be prepared to answer a long series of questions as they relate to your health.

Ask about annuities, Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap, prescription drug payment assistance, long-term care insurance, travel insurance, etc.

How stable is your current income flow? Do you currently own financial products? Are you wondering whether you should cash out any of your financial products? Ask your rep if you should refinance your home or not.

There are many reasons to save money. One main reason is retirement. Today you cannot live off of social security alone. Another reason to save is because there are situations ahead. Straight if your kid are quiet in high day-school, college is not far off, and neither are cars and graduation parties. Other acceptable argument to protect is because you understand you are going to want bigger, better things soon. You understand soon you are going to want that bigger house, or that better car, or that boat you have been dreaming of. Save now so all of those are an option. Another reason to save is because of the unexpected things in life coming toward you. For example there is job less, illness, or home repairs. These are all goods you are going to require saved small change for. According to, "Americans at present expend extra than they deserve. Savings are less than nil. But you are able to break out of that mold all on your own and reap the advantages of sensitivity at liberty and free"

Here are some real ways to save, and save aggressively. First of all, pay off all of your credit cards. That credit being open is an amazing opportunity, character uplift, and safety net. Debt is suffocating. Next, make sure you budget your income so your cost of living is as low as possible in contrast to your income. That is, if you calculate your bills, your gas, food, and extra spending, it is much less than what you are bringing in. With that extra money, you save. Put it in a savings account and act like it does not exist. Another great way to aggressively save is to have a roommate. If you are single, this is a great way to literally split your bills in half. Carpooling is also a great way to save money and split a bill in half.

Lastly, when it comes to saving it is very important to remember you are spending and what is necessary and just a want. For example, calculate how much money you are spending on going out to eat and how much that would equate to for groceries. You would be surprised. Remember how much you are buying that you do not need, that you won't even use that often. Is it worth it right now? Saving and not spending when it comes to wants is exactly what makes it aggressive saving.
