There’s already snow coming down in the mountains and my heart yearns to hit the slopes. This picture is my local ski area Stevens Pass. Hoping for a early start to the season.
There’s been some great posts out there this week, here are a few I’ve come across that I think you might enjoy.
Jason at Redeeming Riches talks about Accidental Death Insurance and whether you should buy it or not. I’m going to spoil the ending for you absolutely not and I’ll tell you why. My mother-in-law passed away a few years back due to a variety of health issues. She had purchased only an accidental death policy probably thinking that she had some form of life insurance to pass on to her loved ones. Her income was meager and the simple act of buying that policy probably put a severe impact on her finances. At her death that policy was useless. It’s a sad testament to a product that has no use whatsoever if you are adequately insured properly. Be sure to read Jason’s post for more information.
