Drop-off Your Old Non-Working Holiday Lights for Recycling at the Plainfield Libary in Plainfield, IL

Drop-off Your Old Non-Working 
Holiday Lights for Recycling at the 
Plainfield Libary in Plainfield, IL
     With the winter weather being so mild here in Chicagoland, Christmas and holiday decorations went up on homes and businesses early this year.  And it seems that the warmer temperatures also gave license to a bit more creativity seen on the houses and lawns in the area.  Lights and decorations are generously utilized everywhere!  

     It seems, that each year no matter how carefully I wrapped our lights after the previous season , there's always a strand or two that hasn't survived into the next year.   My wife and I discussed whether old light strands could be recycled in some manner ... and at the time I was in the decorating process neither of us had a clue as to the answer.

     It's why I was so happy to find the following information and announcement from the  Plainfield (IL) Library.  Now the info below is specific to our area.  But I'm betting that if the Plainfield Library offers this service, there's something similar offered in your area too. 

     So do some investigating to see what you can find out about the recycling of your old light strands.  So much better to recycle/re-purpose them than fill a landfill with them.

Plainfield Library Holiday Light Recycling
    Drop-off your old, non-working holiday lights at the Plainfield Library.  The Library will see that they are re-purposed or recycled by  Elgin Recycling.

     The Library receives a small payment (15 cents/per lb.) for every pound of lights collected.  The proceeds are used to fund "Go Green" events for the Plainfield area ... and activities for the community. 

     All drop-offs can be made at the Plainfield Library, located at:    15025 S. Illinois St., Plainfield, IL.   

     Collection boxes are located next to the Book Return Window at the Library and will be available now through January 24th, 2013.

Property Addresses: Gettin' Down to the Nitty Gritty

Property Addresses:   Gettin' Down to the Nitty Gritty

Take just a second and read through the following statements ...

“The devil is in the details” 
... "in life, it is often the tiny details that end up 
being the most important"

"Get Down To The Nitty Gritty"

“Little details have special talents in 
creating big problems!” 

“Sweat the details”

"Success is the sum of details"

Details ...Details ... it's all about the details ...
     And I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a nerd about them.  My whole family is.  Details, the intricacies, the little things ... they matter to us.
When I was growing up, a typical conversation (and argument) between my brothers and myself at the dinner table or in the backyard centered around "details".  It didn't matter what the topic was, it was the minor differences ... the details about the topic ... that we argued about.  I'm sure we drove our parents crazy.

Ready for Fall? It's Arriving Soon

Ready for Fall?  It's Arriving Soon

Friend ...

Maybe it's because football season has started. Maybe it's the kids being back in school. Or because the night air is cooler. But a sense of Fall has arrived here in Chicagoland ...

The Fall Season brings changes with it. Changes in temperatures. Changes to the clothing we wear. Our focus seems to shift with the coming of shorter days, falling leaves, and crisp air.

Fall can be the perfect time to do a multitude of things. You can prep your home for the upcoming winter weather ... or for Fall listing and sale. 

But whether you're moving on or staying put, Fall is a great time to declutter and organize your home inside and out ... and your finances too.

I've googled like crazy to find interesting articles filled with Fall info, ideas, tips, and photos. Articles that will help you usher the Fall Season in at your house. I hope you enjoy reading the articles offered below and that they inspire you to make any needed changes.


Paper or Paperless billing? Which serves YOUR needs best?

Paper or Paperless billing?  Which serves YOUR needs best?

These days, companies are under pressure to go "green" and become more environmentally friendly.  As a result, an increasing number of businesses are offering their customers a paperless option with which to receive and pay their bills. 

There are obviously many positives to be found within these paperless services:

Trees are saved  Reduced postage costs  Less paper documentation to organize or save/storePossible rewards for switching to paperlessPayments can often be made/posted same-dayAutomated payments can be set-upMore
But I can tell you from my vantage point as a Chicagoland/IL/WI Mortgage Originator, there are also negatives to be found within paperless methods.  For some of my mortgage clients, the choice of going "paperless" just hasn't worked well.

 For some, an email or text reminder regarding payment of bills has not been enough. They NEED a paper billing to arrive in their mail. 

Their paper bil…
