The other thread is interesting. Wondering what bit or bits of advice you've received? Did you take the advice or not (and wish you had)? One right off the bat comes to mind. In the early 90s, I had just separated from the military, moving from San Antonio back to Seattle. Everything I owned was packed into a UHaul trailer, and my dad and I were driving through Colorado. Out of nowhere, he says, "Hey, have you thought about getting renter's insurance?" Me: "Renter's insurance? What's that?" Him: "About $10 a month." So, when I got into my apartment, I picked up renter's insurance, which I kept up in spite of being dirt *** poor. A few years later, some dummy got drunk and decided to start cooking himself dinner just before he passed out. Set his apartment on fire, along with about 50 other units, mine included. I found out that of the 50 units, less than 10% had renters insurance. We were pretty much made whole, but most of the folks in that fire lost everything.
