It was only not long ago that I started getting my insurance needs sorted. Yeah, part and parcel of adulting. With my new insurance policies, I now have another recurring bill to pay every year. A bill that is not that small as well. Which is why it makes me even more eager to find a suitable credit card to pay for this bill.
