Insurance, and how to get free beer

This week we’re going to talk about insurance…no wait, come back!

It’s not the funnest of topics, but it’s a very important one. Having no insurance is dangerous. But so is thinking you’re insured but not actually being covered as fully as you think.

In this week’s episode we run through some of the many risks that you can insure yourself against as a landlord.

Oh, and the episode title isn’t (just) a gimmick – we do run through some ways to get free beer at the end!

Christmas is coming, and what do you buy for the person who has everything? Well, something from Outgrow.me. It’s a site that collates unique products which were originated on crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and have now gone into general production.

Rob B quite fancies the ostrich pillow, if he’s on your list…

We’ve spoken about the advantages of renting your own home several times in the past. This story from Monevator gives a very thorough run-through of the main factors affecting whether you come out better by buying or renting.

The interesting thing is that most of us have grown up with the “renting is dead money” argument. But in fact, it’s nowhere near as cut and dried as that. Well worth a read.
