Football might just be America’s favorite pastime, with NFL season attendance consistently topping 7 million. The gridiron provides us with hours of entertainment at the stadium and on TV, but if we’re paying attention, we can also learn some useful life and money lessons from football as well.

If you always have sweaty palms in the weeks before your vacations, feeling constant fear that something will go wrong – and all your hard-earned travel money will go to waste – you may have a more pleasant experience by signing up for travel insurance. By letting go of some cash that you likely won’t get back (chances are your trip will go just fine), travel insurance does offer peace of mind, which for some people doesn’t have a price.
Appliances are one of the few items that really shouldn’t be bought sight unseen. Even if you purchase your next fridge or dishwasher online, you’d be a savvy shopper by testing out the doors and seeing the appliance in person. Chances are, to do these test touch-and-feels, you’ll be making a trek to one of these major retailers: Sears, Lowe’s, or Home Depot. These stores are easy to find and navigate, and offer a wide selection of name brands for the machines you need use every day.
Buying a car is a huge purchase, so you want to make sure you’re getting the very best deal possible.

Have you finally decided to bite the bullet and replace that outdated, sluggish laptop? When browsing for a new computing partner that best suits your needs, you will quickly find prices that range from very affordable to somewhat outrageous. But if you stick to certain times of the year, you could save a nice chunk of change without having to settle for an inferior product.
