Want to save $500...

by Willy / January 26, 2016 11:16 AM PST

Or so the TV ads declare as such or close to it. The amount may vary but overall its suppose to be a big saving compared to your current "auto insurance" provider. Now, if you switch insurance providers do you really get that big saving? Ask yourself, when comparing the big name auto insurancers where is all that saving coming from. If you're already insured by one, how in the heck did you get screwed having to pay way more to begin with. Is this an one time deal maybe to get you to sign-on or is really a continuing saving, every time you re-new(not $500 everytime) but where you save alittle, but if you switched again, will another $500 come into the picture or close to it? Myself like everyone else wants to save some $, but is it a real good deal having the *SAME insured level* compared to someone else.
Jeeezz, they certainly make it sound that way. -----Willy Happy

I've developed a high immunity to such hype

Heck...I got an energy savings "come on" about how much I'd save per year if I did certain things or bought certain items for my home. My calculation had the utility companies sending me a check every month. Why would anyone not do that?

Extra insulation added
by Willy / January 28, 2016 11:09 AM PST

Some yrs. back I added more insulation to the attic because it made sese. I had already done this many yrs. prior because it was too old or broke down. Now, as its winter it does work far better than when it wasn't there. I still have to heat the house, but it doesn't seem when using gas, turn on as much or as long to heat the house. To improve even upon that, I guess I have to insulate my floor rafters. Its pretty much open and "blowing foam" is about the best to do because any other will be IMO, not worth it. -----Willy Happy

Remember JC Whitney auto parts catalogs?

If you read the claims you would end up removing gas from the car from all the savings if you installed all the things they offered!

I bought a few items from them for my old VW

Consequently, they sent me their very large catalogue regularly. I'm sure they spent more on those mailings than I did on merchandise. I heard they entered bankruptcy due to the catalogue expense. Apparently, they didn't have a plan to trim the mailing list of those who didn't continue to order.

I bough a truck topper from them

Came in pieces in a large box and had to build it myself overseas. It lasted for many years, was on the truck when it left here 20 years later.
