I never thought it would happen. Or at least I never thought I would admit it.
I am growing jealous of Farmer H!
Farmer H might become a Future Junkyillionaire before I can even dream of becoming a Future Pennyillionaire! It's like we're living in the Bizarro Hillmomba. Now HE is a money magnet, and all I can attract is weirdos.
afternoon, Farmer H revealed that he'd taken in $348 at his Storage Unit
Store over Friday/Saturday/Sunday. Sure, he had some money invested in
his inventory, since he bought some of it at auctions. And sure, it was
the first real weekend of the month, so people had money in their
"Wow. If you made that EVERY weekend, you could almost pay for one month of our health insurance premiums."
that I wanted to rain on his income parade. Just point out the
outrageous money we are spending on health insurance for him, me, and
The Pony. I would never expect Farmer H to use HIS money to pay for any
necessities for US. Because HIS money is for him. And OUR money is for
things like building him a junk-holding Freight Container Garage,
complete with car lift thingy.
Anyhoo...Farmer H also
saved us over a $1000 this week. No, it's not from NOT-BUYING shoe
inserts from The Good Feet Store. Though technically, he did that as well. But I'm not ready to say he saved us $2000 this week.
savings came in the form of auto insurance premiums. We have quite a
few cars, you know. And two 4-wheelers, and two Gators. Insurance for
them, and T-Hoe/A-Cad/ Trailblazer/Toronado/Ford F250/Rogue doesn't come
cheap. Especially the 2013 Rogue, driven by The 1998 Pony. We were
supposedly getting the multi-car discount, along with another for having
our homeowner's insurance with the same company.
Funny how having all the bills come due on the same date can save you $1000 over a 6-month period. And I don't mean funny ha-ha.
since the beginning, we've paid our auto insurance every six months. As
we started to amass more and more vehicles, I told Farmer H that I was
tired of getting bills for them almost every month, which defeated the
purpose of knowing when one was due, and how much to put aside. So,
supposedly, he got them all to come at the same time. Almost.
THEN he went in to pay in person for the 4-wheelers, since he had the
coverage lessened, now that they're older, and if they get stolen, too
bad so sad. The office gal told Farmer H that he could save almost a
$1000 by getting all the cars due at the same date. Which we thought we
Anyhoo...this might be some new policy, and they
weren't really holding out on us like my suspicious mind
suspects...because the office gal told Farmer H that she'd just done
that with her OWN insurance a couple months ago. True. She didn't have
to point that out to him at all. But now we're getting a savings of
about $2000 a year on auto insurance.
Which would pay slightly over the cost of one month's health insurance premium.
