"I'm paying over $260 a month for car insurance, which is ridiculous, and I can't afford it anymore. What can I do?"

“Oregon, like most states, requires you to have minimum car insurance coverage. Still, that doesn’t mean you need to be paying exorbitant rates for your policy.
If you want to save money on car insurance, your best bet is to always shop around. Insurance companies all use their own proprietary formulas to set rates, so there’s a good chance that you can find a cheaper price for the coverage you have now. They all have their own sets of discounts and benefits as well.
You can gather car insurance quotes yourself—or you can turn to Jerry. A licensed broker, Jerry does all the hard work of finding the cheapest quotes from the top name-brand insurance companies and buying new car insurance.
And to ensure you always have the lowest rate, Jerry will send you new quotes every time your policy comes up for renewal, so you’re always getting the coverage you want at the best price.”

If you don't tell your home insurance company that you're running a business from your house and they find out, what will happen? Will there be any penalties?
I've been running my business from home for the last few weeks. It looks like this is going to be a permanent arrangement. I forgot to notify my home insurance company about this, and now I'm worried that I'll be penalized in some way.

How does the wind/hail deductible on my policy work?
I see that my homeowner's policy has a wind/hail deductible of 5% and then another deductible of $1,000. I guess I didn't notice this when I purchased the policy. I am insured for $375,000; how would the wind/hail deductible come into play?
