Mariah Posey wants you to know

The most “convenient" option won’t always be the best for your situation. When it was time for Mariah to renew her renters insurance policy, she considered switching her coverage to the same company as her auto insurance for a bundle discount and ease of management. However, even with a discount added and the same levels of coverage, bundling would have caused her gross premium to be significantly higher than maintaining the existing separate policies. It pays to shop around, but be mindful of what’s most important to you. You may weigh price, convenience and coverage differently with each company.

Insurance is a more palatable expense when you realize you're getting more financial coverage than you'd ever spend in premiums.
