Welcome to Week Three of Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog and her Progressive Snapshot Test drive!
It’s getting pretty exciting, we are heading into the third week and Jenn Blah Blah Blog’s savings has dropped from 30% to 16%! What are we going to do, what on earth did Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog do wrong for her savings to dive 14% in one week! You have to keep reading to find out!
Jenn’s Blah Blah Blog right now! There’s up’s and down’s, right’s and left’s, fast acceleration, hard breaking, simply put TOO MUCH DRIVING! LOL, it’s really been fun and I hope everyone is having fun following along to see how much savings Snapshot can actually bring the average driver.
So why the huge decrease in savings I am sure you want to know, last week Jenns Blah Blah Blog was saving 30% now only 16%. To put it out there on the table for you, I break hard and drive too much. Which over the last week I can say is honestly true, things always happen that way you know.
When things need to run normal they never do, or when you’re running late there’s always that driver in front of you going negative 23 miles per hour, you get stuck in traffic, try to take a short cut and there’s road construction, it never fails to happen to me. Not sure why I thought this would run smoothing, lol! Okay, you are watching me cry over spilled milk, there’s nothing I can do other than set a goal to improve my savings before the month ends. Which is what I have done, there’s nothing I can do about how much I drive. It’s simple like most moms, I am the taxi before school, after school, well really all the time! If someone needs a ride, I am there to save the day! I swear I need a bumper sticker that says, mom’s taxi service please leave a tip upon exciting this vehicle.
Really if I had a nickel for every kid I have dropped off and time I have jumped in my truck for someone else I wouldn’t be blogging. I would be on my own little island reading everyone else stories about saving money, lol! Okay, not really but its nice to dream, until my dream comes true saving money is extremely important to me and my family, lol my family just doesn’t know how important. Another power that mom has, she pays the bills!
So back to the story, darn it must be hard for you to follow along if I don’t stick to the story, maybe that’s why my driving score went down, FOCUS! See but I am working on that as well, focusing on what I am doing at all times, while on the road and on the internet, lol! Back to Progressive, Snapshot and Flo!
I will share with you why my savings has dropped so much:
Last weekend I had to take Shawn to the emergency room. It was rather scary and this mom doesn’t do good when one of her loved ones is hurting and I am scared. So you bet your bootie, on this trip I defiantly broke every safe driving rule in the book. I pushed on the gas, slammed on the break and forgot to put my seat belt on. I was scared that something horrible was going to happen to my husband and while saving money is important it doesn’t hold a flame to what my husband means to me.
I had to drive 600 miles, yea this never happens and out of the blue I had something come up for work. 600 miles in two days, man I love road trips but not business road trips.
So there you have it I drove crazy and way to much. Honestly say with the way I drove Shawn to the hospital I was surprised to still see a 16% savings on the board. I might have fallen behind on the savings but I started to figure it out and my monthly car insurance bill is $257, yes that’s for more than one car, but a 16% savings on that is about $40 a month, which adds up to about $480 a year! I think I’ll take it, but its going to motivate me to see if I can move from 16% savings to something a little better! I would love to reach 30% savings but lets see how much I can increase my savings from here on out!Follow along and see what savings I have next week. Okay, Okay I will do it! I was trying to avoid setting a goal, but let’s do it! Jenns Blah Blah Blog is going to set a goal of reaching 22% savings by the end of the Snapshot test drive! Do you think I can do it! OMG, the pressure is on now! Crap, I cannot drive no where, now I am scared I will have to break hard due to a bunny crossing the street, rock in the road, or one of the cute little turtles that we sometimes see crossing the road. HEY, yea I know I am supposed to be on the lookout while driving, but have you ever noticed a turtle from far away, yup that’s what I though you’ve had that problem too! Driving right up on a turtle causing you to break hard, see I am not the only one I knew it!
Now, as far as accelerating fast, SHAWN DON’T MAKE ME MAD! I am known to accelerate fast while backing out of the driveway and peeling out at 4 miles per hour, yup I know its soooooo stressful being in the drives seat!
What do you think, can I make it to my goal of 22% savings or will I come across a bunny, turtle, huge boulder in the road that’s invisible until its right in front of me, maybe Shawn will make me mad just to ruin my 22% goal, lol! No he wouldn’t do it on purpose, but it’s very possible he will make me mad, lol. So if he does will I have the strength to leave the keys on the dresser and control my need to peal out, while backing out of a driveway! Man, why couldn’t this be easy, lol Darn Flo!
