Go through your insurances (e.g. car insurance) & utility bills (if you are renting) annually, and ring around to see whether you can get a better deal for what you need. You can also put your mobile phone and/or home telephone (if you still have one!) into this category.

Due to the competitive nature of the insurance / energy / communications industries in Australia there may always be some better options out there. It is definitely worth considering reviewing these on a regular basis.


If your mobile phone plan is running out soon a question to ask is if you really need an upgrade of your mobile? Or can you use the same handset for a cheaper monthly deal? Are you looking for a better telephone plan or looking for a better deal on your utilities?
