2015 Will County, IL Farmers Markets


2015 Will County, IL Farmers Markets

     
     I married a farm girl.  And you might take the girl off the farm ... but you don't take the farm out of the girl!   

     Many people share my wife's love of gardening ... and the "fruits" of a farmers and gardener's labors.  Fresh vegetables, fruits, seasonings, flowers, jams, jellies, more!  

     When purchased at a local Farmers Market, all are a great way of feeding yourself and your family fresh healthy foods, saving money, supporting local farmers, and keeping your expenditures local.
    

     In Will County where I live, many of the towns host Farmers Markets during the growing seasons each year.  So, I did a little bit of research and gathered info and directions to some of our County's best markets.  I've listed them below for your enjoyment and convenience.  

     I hope you have an opportunity to visit many of our local Will County Farmers Markets over the next few months ...

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…
