Home insurance

When I listen to the news and that sadly they tell us how a building burnt down and that all tenants are now homeless, it makes me sad.

Up to the point where they interview these people and that these one say they lost everything and that they did not have home insurance. I'm sorry but I have a problem with this.

For about 10-15$ a month, you can get insurances that will allow you to start your life over. 10-15$ a month is the price of a damn pack of cigarettes our days. The same pack that will probably the cause of the fire.

I understand completely that some people don't have a lot of money. But I sincerely believe that the 10-15$ is all worth it. We are not talking about 100$ a month here, simply 10-15$.

I know I may sound harsh, but imagine the smoke detector beeping, you on the side of the street looking at all you ever owned just going up in smoke, is it worth it?

So do you have home insurance?

We have tenant insurance for our apartment. Wouldn't go without it. It's $15/month and if, heaven forbid, somethings happen, we get $30,000 so that we're able to replace our material objects. It's for the best.

I agree. I, too, have renter's insurance and though i hate paying it, I do. It is money well spent.
