Getting Our Finances Sorted

Happy December everyone! I hope your tree is out and life is looking merry and bright for you. It's the end of the year, so lets all breathe a collective sigh of relief, put our feet up and let it all blow away. 

I have a few posts coming up so keep your eyes peeled, but first...

2016 was the year of adulting - we've locked in car and contents insurances, something we could never afford before (but also couldn't afford not to have), but also, throughout the year have had a lot of unexpected cost to cover. From root canals, cars, unplanned trips and financial commitments, most of our savings have been soaked up just getting by. (2017 will be the year of saving! hahaaa)

Being home with our kids is a priority (and worth it!) but living and relying on a single income is a sacrifice, so it’s important for us to be wise with what we have.

I've been looking in to income protection insurance because we do rely solely on one earner in our family. If an accident, sickness, or job loss strikes, it's a relief to know that we'll be covered until we get back on our feet.

If this is something that concerns you too, check out Pinnacle Life's website for info on their income protection insurance and get a quick quote. 

While you're there check out their life insurance calculator. I've done the maths; we can be covered for $4 a week for life insurance. On their website, you can also price compare your life insurance quote with other similar companies offering life insurance policy.

  3. Oh yes, some years are just like that, but we too chose a single income family life and have never regretted it.


Wowee! Thanks for leaving a comment :)
