“When we went into lock down, the kids came home, we all went online and I felt like we just had more time. We grew a vege garden. We lived locally, shopped locally. We were doing puzzles. We did the whole family lockdown thing. We’re lucky we live in such a beautiful place and could go to the parks and the beach. Everything we needed was local so yeah, it was nice.”
“When schools started to go back, I thought, there’s too much uncertainty. Too much going on. So we decided to move the kids to the local schools. And really live locally, and we’ve been enjoying that. We’ve now brought everything closer to home. We’ve all been loving it. The kids even ride themselves to school.”
Another thing it meant was that she was driving less. Which might account for her savings when she switched to Youi. Since joining, she’s saved $335.68 on her insurance.
“I’d been with my old insurer for a long time. When they sent me a letter telling me premiums were going up, I decided to shop around. I spoke to Youi, and it would’ve been silly to not go with them, the price was that good.”
So Cara’s new look on life has already paid off. She says she’s really enjoyed spending more time with family, keeping the shopping, the activities to within her local community, making sure she’s helping local business. The only problem now, she says, is making sure things stay that way.
