Now we've bought our own place, we've accumulated proper, grown-up's furniture and have a stand-alone computer - not just a crappy old laptop we'd work on in front of the TV.
Home insurance isn't just a luxury, it's become a necessity. And it's not cheap. Suddenly I'm one of those people who has started to compare home insurance.
It's become a huge part of everyday life now, and the luxury of the internet has meant we can all spend a bit more time getting the right deal for us. I was gutted when I finally opened a Lovefilm account and the following week found that Vouchercodes were giving away £20 M&S vouchers when you started! So my advice (if you want it!) would be to spend a little time finding the best deal possible and you will not only have peace of mind, but your bank account will thank you too.
