4: Make Your Housing Plan — Rent

Renters Insurance

Renters insurance covers your personal property and protects you from liability claims. It may not be required by your landlord, but it is an important and relatively inexpensive way to protect your possessions, including furniture and electronics, from theft, fire, storms and other damage. 

You may be able to get a basic policy for as little as $12 a month. But to make sure you have enough protection, it is important to inventory your belongings.
