Hi everyone! I hope you had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunshine. I have a very exciting competition for you today in collaboration with Compare The Market (see it here) and my good friend Aleksandr Orlov, who kindly offered my readers a chance to win £100 worth of John Lewis vouchers! To enter, simply fill in the rafflecopter widget below, but first, let's talk about home insurance.
When I rented my first flat at the age of 19, I didn't own anything valuable, so I didn't even enquire about contents insurance. I then moved to another country, with just one suitcase, so my second flat didn't need insurance either. I am sure that most young people don't even think about it.
When you finally start investing your hard earned pennies into fancy TV's, cinema systems and in case of most bloggers - pretty expensive camera equipment etc, you simply have to get contents insurance. It's not that expensive (around £50 per year for a 2 bedroom house) and you can pay it monthly. It is even more important to insure the contents of your home, if you go on holidays etc. Just imagine how you would feel, if you came back from abroad and all your stuff was gone? What would you do? I would have to live without TV's, computers etc for months, because I am not fortunate enough to have savings or rich parents...
Getting a quote is very simple and with comparison sites, like comparethemarket, you know that you will get the best offer on the market and... a cute little meerkat toy. Who doesn't love meerkats? It takes about 15 minutes to fill in all the details and you are done. The best bit - it will only costs a couple of pounds a month. I expected it to cost much more to be honest.
Let me know what you think about contents insurance. Is it worth it? Do you buy it every year?
