     It seems, that no matter how carefully I wrap our holiday lights the previous season , there's always a strand or two that doesn't survive ...  

     It's why I was so happy to find out that the Plainfield (IL) Public Library is again offering a holiday light recycling service now through February 22, 2015.  It's so much better to recycle the old lights than add them to a landfill.

    The following lights (all lengths and colors) can be dropped of at the Plainfield Library (whether open or closed) to be recycled: 
  • Mini-holiday lights (or Italian Lights) 
  • C7 lights 
  • C9 lights 
  • Rope lights 
  • LED lights 
  • Old extensions cords 
   
http://www.genemundt.com     The Library will see that they are re-purposed or recycled by Elgin Recycling.
     The Library receives (15 cents/per lb.) for every pound of lights collected.  The proceeds will be 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 February 22, 2015.

Love Your New Construction .. But Educate Yourself About Future Tax Bills

Love Your New Construction ... But Educate Yourself About Future Tax Bills

*I want to preface this article by saying it's geography specific to the Chicagoland Area and its collar counties ...


So you've opted for building or buying a newly constructed home ... 

You've decided you'll invest most, or all, of your savings to cover Down Payment and Closing Costs.After all, it's a new home, you hopefully won't need money for repairs or improvements for quite a while, right?  

Plus:  The property taxes for your newly constructed home will initially be lower, as they'll be based upon the vacant lot on which your new home is built.  (The new home wasn't completed yet for the previous tax year's bill.) 

But how does this affectyour future tax bill and the tax portion of your monthly mortgage escrow payment?

When obtaining financing:  During your first year of a new construction occupancy, the real estate tax portion of your escrow account is based upon the last av…

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.
