S

aint Patrick’s Day is a day
synonymous with celebra-
tion. Though Saint Patrick
is the patron saint of Ireland, peo-
ple of all ethnicities enjoy the fes-
tivities each March 17. The fol-
lowing are some of the more well-
known Saint Patrick’s Day cele-
brations around the globe.
•New York City. Perhaps the most
famous Saint Patrick’s Day parade
in the world, New York City’s
annual Patty’s Day march down
5th Avenue has been around since
1762 and remains a must-see for
all fans of Saint Patrick’s Day tra-
ditions.
•New Orleans, Louisiana. While
New Orleans might be most
famous for Mardi Gras and all the
revelry that accompanies it, the
city also hosts a unique and rau-
cous Saint Patrick’s Day parade.
Just like Mardi Gras, the Saint
Patrick’s parade in New Orleans
includes floats, jazz bands and, of
course, costumed revelers.
•Florence, Italy. Saint Patrick’s
Day celebrations in Florence are
an ongoing event, with 10
days of music,
food and drink.
While Italian
cuisine is loved
the world over,
during their
Saint Patrick’s
Day celebrations
the Florentines
offer their take
on Irish food and
drink, making this
celebration one of
the world’s most
unique.
•Oslo, Norway. Saint Patrick’s
Day festivities in Oslo
include a parade past
the famed Oslo
Cathedral. Revelers
are encouraged to
dress up, as parade
participants dress up like famous
Irish characters and people
throughout Irish history, including
Saint Patrick himself.
•Toronto, Canada. Though just a

A
s I write my column, it
is Oscar night in
Hollywood, the
United States and the entire
world. Shirley Bassey per-
formed her James Bond hit
“Goldfinger” from 1964 and
Barbara Streisand, in honor of
the late Marvin Hamlish, paid
tribute with “The Way We
Were.” Both of these singers hit
the high notes of their careers
with these fine musical compo-
sitions that were brought back
to life this evening. Though I
hate to admit it, it was Shirley
who brought down the house
with a standing ovation for the
quality of her performance,
strength of her voice and the
command of the stage at age
76. Barbara is only six years her
junior, yet still captivates audi-
ences with the presence of a
deity every time she performs
live on stage. Christopher
Plummer, 84, also a living leg-
end, also made a presentation,
stating he was interested in
making 30 more films with any
of the supporting actresses
nominated for an Academy
Award tonight.
Each of these profession-
als, craftsmen and crafts-
women in their own right and
among the most admired per-
formers in their field, have
proven many things over the
years. I’d like to give you my
opinion of some of what they
are, through a financial plan-
ner’s eyes.
Firstly, there is no fear,
hesitation or nervousness in
their performances. Though
well past their prime, they con-
tinue to shine and amaze us
with the brilliance of their exe-
cution of verse, song or dance.
They are confident of their
skills and with the passage of
time, understand the limita-
tions they must now endure.
They can no longer reach or
sustain the high notes of their
youth, or they might require a
teleprompter or they might
need help navigating the stairs
to the stage, but in no way will
the audience see them require
any outside aid, or witness any
frailty or compromise in the
level of performance demon-
strating their craft. We expect
Shirley, Barbara and
Christopher to be ageless in
voice and forever on stage
entertaining and performing at
a winning competitive level.
I believe they will know
exactly when it will be time to
put an end to their careers
before the public decides for
them. Unlike the professional
athlete who might choose to
see the curtain of his career
come down before his very eyes
while rounding second base, a
true professional performer
would never take the risk of
disappointing his audience; no,
he would choose retirement
first, leaving us with the mem-
ory of his past craftsmanship, as
not to disappoint or be embar-
rassed by the public spectacle
he would make of himself. We
all remember performers who
went beyond what should have
been their own declared retire-
ment date. (Frank Sinatra for
one.)
Barbara Streisand is one
performer who, I believe, will
never go on stage with less than

her best. A triple threat
throughout her career, she can
sing, act and dance, but she is
also a director and comedi-
enne. She will leave singing in
public behind, if it comes to
that, concentrating on direct-
ing or acting when she gets the
urge to work for a few months.
Another reason she would
never compromise her audi-
ence is because she is financial-
ly independent and has been
for decades. Forbes pegs her net
worth at $340,000,000 and due
to royalties, she will probably
never drop much below that
figure. Shirley and Christopher
each have made millions of
dollars over their careers and I
hope and trust that their
money is in trust for the hope of
their kids and favorite charities.
This is one area where
even you and I can emulate
these magnificent performers;
you might not possess their tal-
ent to entertain, but you can
employ the same financial
planning techniques to
“Maximize your income today
while Protecting, Preserving
and Perpetuating your wealth
for tomorrow!”
Another reason these
entertainers look so good after
decades in the public eye is
probably because they have lit-
tle to worry about financially.
Having no financial stress has
the propensity to increase life
and certainly to make the jour-
ney a lot more pleasant along
the way. Christopher Plummer
said at the Oscars: “These
actresses are not overnight sen-
sations; they have been work-
ing on their craft since their
teenage years and will continue
to do so for many more years to
come.”
Are his words prophecies,
prediction, conjecture or facts
based on personal performance
and experience? I’d say all of
those apply to every one of us,
both in our journey through life
and especially with financial
matters. With patience, repeti-
tive rehearsals, discipline, and
investment of your time, ener-
gy and money into that which
you love or require, perhaps
one day you will receive an
award, too – maybe not from
the Academy per se, but defi-
nitely from your spouse and
kids.
On that note, if you
watched the presentation of
the Oscars, did you notice how
many winners thanked their
families and loved ones, both
here and departed, for their
success and achievement?
Their hard work, dedication
and vision brought them into
the Hollywood Hall of Fame.
Your task (and you should
decide to accept it) is to win
your own personal Academy
Award of a rich rewarding
retirement, financially stress-
free with guaranteed never-
ending monthly income and a
massive bequest to your family
when you are gone.
This is something you can
do to win your lifetime Oscar
and I suggest engaging yourself
in the proper activities with
practice, rehearsal and vision as
early in your life as possible to
produce the greatest degree of

quarter-century old, Toronto’s
Saint Patrick’s Day parade is
now one of the largest in North
America. Featuring more than
2,000 marchers representing
100 organizations, Toronto’s
annual celebration of Saint
Patrick covers roughly two
miles and includes floats and
lots of live music.
•Seattle, Washington. The
city of Seattle’s Irish Heritage
Club hosts its own Saint
Patrick’s Day parade and, in
fact, a week of celebrations
officially known as Irish Week.
A two-day Irish festival
includes Irish music, singing
and dancing as well as several
contests and activities for kids.
A
father who is afraid to
go the dentist is likely
to pass on his fear to
his children, according to
researchers at Rey Juan Carolos
University in Madrid, Spain.
The International Journal of
Pediatric Dentistry published a
study where 183 Madrid chil-
dren from 7-15 years old, as
well as their parents, rated the
level of fear to dentistry in an
anonymous questionnaire.
The data showed that
mothers reported the highest
levels of dental fear and the
researchers concluded that the
greater dental fear is for one
family member, the greater it
would be for the other family
members. They also concluded
that the father’s feelings about
going to the dentist play a huge
role in whether a mother’s fear
of the dentist will be passed to
their children.
“Children seem to pay
attention to the emotional
reactions of their fathers, if
going to the dentist will be
stressful,” said Professor
America Lara-Sacido.
The results point to a
need for dentists to reduce
fathers’ dental fears by giving
them accurate information on
dentistry, teaching simple
relaxation techniques, or
addressing negative thoughts to
prevent passing dental fears on
to their children. The work
with the parents is key and
teaches them to be relaxed as a
way of directly influencing
their kids.

t’s time to start thinking
about lawn management!
After a cold snowy winter,
we are finally just weeks away
from the pleasantness of
spring. You’ve probably got a
list a mile long of things you
plan to do with your yard,
whether it be planting flowers
or trimming your hedges. But
as you wait for the cold to dis-
sipate and the sun to appear
more regularly, now is the
time to think about fertilizing
your lawn. Believe it or not,
early spring is the time to begin
fertilizing. The first few weeks
of March are prime time for
waking your hungry lawn.
Some experts say that in a
square foot of lawn there is
potential for a thousand grass
plants. Whether your grass has
lacked, or you wish to improve
its density and life, now is the
time to prepare for spring.
In addition to a fuller
appearance, a well-fed lawn has
healthy roots that will ulti-
mately combat drought, heat,
foot traffic, mowing, and other
stresses
that may
occur.
Well-
established
grass and turf
areas also help to
control soil erosion
with their extensive root sys-
tem. Fertilizer contains nitro-
gen, which is the most impor-
tant nutrient component in a
lawn. In order to maintain the
highest quality of turf, each
type of grass requires different
amounts of nitrogen. Gro-Rite
Garden Center in Lincoln
Park has several varieties of
fertilizer available, including
Scotts 4-Step Program, which
is a four-times-a-year fertiliza-
tion regimen for your lawn.
Be sure to water your lawn
after fertilizing, as fertilizing a
dry lawn can be feudal!
For more information
and tips for fertilizing
your lawn, visit
Gro-Rite
Garden
Center in
Lincoln
Park. In
addition to a
variety of fer-
tilization pro-
grams there are
gardening supplies,
herbs, flowers, annuals,
and trees are available. Grow
your garden the “rite” way at
Gro-Rite Garden Center
located at 30 Hillview Road,
Lincoln Park. Call 973-694-

I
t seems that we all survived
the “fiscal cliff” legislation
that was finalized early in
2013. Small businesses survived
especially well, with many of
the “prior” beneficial tax provi-
sions extended into 2013 and
beyond. Here are a few of those
business provisions that you
should be aware of as a business
owner.
Asset expensing. This
provision allows businesses to
fully expense the purchase of
many assets (such as equip-
ment, furnishing, technology,
etc.) in just one year, rather
than being required to depreci-
ate (deduct) their cost over a
number of years. Up to
$500,000 of these purchases
can be immediately expensed
in the year of purchase.
Bonus depreciation. If you
hit your expensing limit, you
can always fall back on bonus
depreciation, which allows you
to deduct 50 percent (and
sometimes more) of certain
types of assets in the first year of
purchase. This provision was
set to expire at the end of 2012,
but has now been extended
through 2014.
Work opportunity tax
credits. These are tax credits
(which are much more valu-
able than tax deductions)
available to employers who hire
certain individuals. They
include military veterans, peo-
ple receiving government assis-
tance, or those living in dis-
tressed areas. These credits
were set to expire, but have
now been extended through
2013.

T
here are four main
underlying causes for
canine allergy symp-
toms. Effective dog allergy
treatment has been developed
for them, but because all of
these reasons produce com-
mon symptoms, various tests
may be necessary to determine
which allergen is provoking a
reaction. Standard methods of
treatment are successful in
controlling most cases. Some
especially severe conditions
may require the use of steroids
or immunotherapy.
The two most common
causes of allergic reactions are
atopic (that is, inhalants) —
mainly dust mites, pollen,
mold and mildew — and aller-
gens that are present in flea
saliva. The symptoms of an
allergy are most commonly
caused from inhaling an anti-
gen, or a substance which
causes the production of anti-
bodies. Studies show that in
excess of 40 percent of canines
react to the offending sub-
stances in flea bites.
Reasons that more rarely
produce responses are allergies
to food or of the skin. The
foods that are most likely to
cause symptoms are the same
foods that are the most com-
mon ingredients in commer-
cial food recipes. Certain fun-
gal infections, that is, mange
or ringworm, should be ruled
out if they are suspected. Skin
conditions that originate from
exposure to noxious sub-
stances are irritant or allergic
contact dermatitis. These rare
conditions are responses to
irritating chemicals or other
antigens.
Complicating a specific
diagnosis as to exactly what
antigens are to blame is the
fact that the same symptoms,
itching and skin problems,
characterize the different
types of disorders. Vomiting
and diarrhea may indicate a
food allergy, and continuing
ear problems or increased
bowel movements are other
possible signs. A food trial, in
which the pet is placed on a
novel food diet for twelve
weeks, is the method used to
isolate the food responsible.
Avoidance of the aller-
gen is a common strategy to
reduce symptoms for food,
flea, atopic and skin problems.
By removing and then rein-
troducing suspected allergens
one at a time, one may discov-
er the cause. Restricting pets
to a clean, uncarpeted room
and keeping them away from
possible allergens is called an
exclusion trial. Slowly intro-
ducing possible causes, includ-
ing rubbing a substance such
as grass on the paw, will help
to identify them.
There are some other
ways to remedy your pet’s
allergies. Add Omega-3 fatty
acids to their diet.
This is fish or flax oil
and they assist in
reducing the effects
of histamines, which
are responsible for
the itching and skin
conditions. If the
fatty acids do not
take effect in a few
weeks, antihistamine drugs,
originally designed for
humans, can also work for
canines.
Topical therapy, which
involves treating the skin
with anti-itch ointments,
shampoos, rinses or sprays
often have good results, but
these offer temporary relief.
Shampoos containing hydro-
cortisone are also used. Biotin,
a B-vitamin, has also shown
positive results for some pets.
When none of the above
methods is adequate for dog
allergy treatment, steroids
produce good results, but are
not recommended for long-
term use because immune or
endocrine system problems
may develop over time.
Immunotherapy, involving
allergy skin testing and a series
of injections, is a highly suc-
cessful approach for most ani-
mals. This therapy takes a
dedicated pet owner, but
results in significantly reduced
reactions to allergens.

veryone is a little Irish
come St. Patrick’s Day,
and children are no
exception. While kids can’t
indulge in some of the spirits-
induced revelry that accom-
panies the festivities this hol-
iday, there are many things
little ones can do to have a
good time on St. Patrick’s
Day.
•Dress in green: Encourage
kids to dress and accessorize
in all shades of green. For
even more flair, they can use
face paint to draw shamrocks
on their cheeks and hands.
•Crafts: From paper four-leaf
clovers to homemade lep-
rechaun hats and belt buck-
les, children can get in the
spirit by fashioning crafts
that correspond with the
theme of the day.
•Treasure hunt: Send little
leprechauns in search of gold
at the end of the rainbow.
Like an Easter egg hunt, hide
gold-wrapped chocolate
coins around the house
and set kids off to find the
treasure.
•Blarney Stone toss: Play a
game of “hot potato” to Irish
music using a garden rock to
serve as the “Blarney Stone.”
When the music stops, the
person holding the stone is
disqualified.
•Coin toss: Set up a pot or
hat and see how many coins

Patty’s Day for the Kids
I
n the nearly three decades
that we at Boston Louis
Jewelers have been in busi-
ness, the one common desire
couples have always had when
choosing an engagement ring is
for it to be unique. While there
has been a return of “art” into
jewelry designs in the past 10
years or so, most engagement
rings in stores are still mass-pro-
duced and are one-of-many in a
series, instead of one-of-a-kind.
Throughout history, jew-
elry has been made by hand or
by manufacturers who had
more of a regional influence.
As a consequence, most
engagement rings up to about
50 years ago are more apt to be
of that “one-of-a-kind” type.
But over the years, so many of
those have been either broken
apart for their intrinsic value or
they were redesigned into more
fashionable pieces for the
decades that followed.
As a result, as time goes
by, fewer and fewer of
these rings are avail-
able.
Another factor
adding to the unique-
ness of an antique or vin-
tage engagement ring is how
the diamonds were cut. While
the process of cutting diamonds
today is aided by lasers and
computers, diamonds and gem-
stones back then were cut com-
pletely by hand and eye. Each
“gem” was a product of the cut-
ter’s individual talent in analyz-
ing the rough stone, and then
through the process of cutting
and polishing, maximizing its
innate beauty.
By rough definition, for a
piece of jewelry to be consid-
ered an antique it must be 100
years old or more. The term
“vintage” means “indicative of
a certain period or era.” Some
sought-after periods are
Victorian, Edwardian and Art
Deco. These terms devel-
oped years later after cer-
tain distinctive char-
acteristics of those
eras became identifi-
able.
Victorian pieces
were made in yellow or
rose gold and often
contained symbols or
motifs that at the
time were associ-
ated with
expressions of
eternal love,
such as inter-
locking hearts,
initials or serpents.
This is also where the
“three stone” rings so
popular today originated.
Enamels, deep engraving and
seed pearls were also character-
istic of the Victorian Era. The
diamonds of this period are
what we now call “old mine” or
“old miner” cuts, which were of
a squarish-round shape and
were the predecessor to what is
sold today as a “cushion” cut.
The Edwardian period
brought light and delicate
designs in platinum and white
gold that reflected the feminine
fashions of that time. Designs
utilized open filigree work with
hand-engraved patterns, mil-
graining and accents of tiny
diamonds.
Art Deco designs incorpo-
rated the geometrical and sym-
metrical lines found in the
architecture of that period in
both the forms of the jewelry
and the cuts of the stones as
well. Vibrant rubies, emeralds
and sapphires added contrast to
the stark white of the diamonds
and metals used.
Each of these periods
offers a beautiful option for
those looking for a truly unique
engagement ring. At Boston
Louis Jewelers in Pequannock,
we have a wide selection of
vintage, estate and antique
engagement rings priced from
around $190 and up. We
also have many dia-
monds and gem-
stones from these
periods for
those who
would like
either to
replace stones
lost from family
heirlooms or to pair
an old diamond with a
history with a modern setting.

brought to you by Boston Louis
Jewelers, located at 151

M
usic is an integral
element of many of
life’s special
events. The score of a movie
can carry a film, and a tender
song can bring tears to a per-
son’s eyes during a stage pro-
duction.
Many couples spend lots
of time choosing a song for
their first dance at their wed-
ding. While that song is sig-
nificant, couples should
devote lots of time to choos-
ing a band or deejay for the
reception as well.
Statistics compiled from
a variety of sources, includ-
ing USA Today, The
Knot.com and Brides maga-
zine, point out that roughly
80 percent of guests say the
thing they remember most
about a wedding is the enter-
tainment. When asked,
many couples admit they
wish they spent more time
and money choosing their
wedding entertainment.
Music helps make mem-
ories and gets guests on their
feet. Those who enjoy them-
selves most at the wedding
are often the people who are
on the dance floor. It is
important to note that price
shouldn’t be the deciding
factor for wedding day enter-
tainment. It is crucial to see
the entertainment provider
in action to judge for oneself
just how good he or she is.
One of the best ways to
witness a deejay or band in
action is to attend a wedding
where they will be working.
Find out if you can spend a
little while peeking into a
wedding and gauge guests’
responses to the music and
find out how the entertain-
ment engages the crowd. The
entertainer may be able to
arrange this with a cou-
ple from an upcoming
wedding so that you
don’t necessarily have
to crash the wedding. If
a musical entertainment
company is wary of letting
you see players in action, it
may be an indication to look
elsewhere.
Another good way to
see for yourself if the enter-
tainment factor is high is to
pay attention to the bands
and deejays used at weddings
you attend. If you are plan-
ning nuptials in
a year or the
months to come,
take the cards or
information of
the entertainers
you come across
at weddings
and any special
event parties. If
there is someone who is
doing an impeccable job,
there should be no hesitation
to hire that person for your
own wedding. Don’t be
embarrassed to ask a friend or
family member for the name
and number of their deejay.
If you have specific
music requirements, such as
cultural music or certain ver-
sions of songs you prefer to
be played, it is key to discuss
this with the deejay or band
ahead of time and confirm
they can meet your needs.
Certain wedding vendors
may promise you the world
but fail to deliver. Ask the
deejay for a playlist to see his
or her selections for the wed-
ding. Find out if the band has
a compilation they can send
to you so you can see how
they sound performing some
of the more popular songs
typically played at wedding
receptions.
If you like a particular
band or deejay, double-check
that the people you see play-
ing are actually the ones
who will be performing at
your wedding. Many times
performers are part of larg-
er companies that have
many people working under
one name. If you’re not
careful, you may not get the
same performer you had
hoped for. Request specific
individuals if you want to
guarantee that the music will
be what you heard at a previ-
ous wedding or during a trial
performance.
Music can make or break
a wedding reception. Invest
ample time into selecting and
trying out vendors to ensure
fun is to be had by all.

A
nello fence, located
at 50 Route 23 is
proud to carry on
through 50 years of fences
within the Anello family.
Anello Fence invites local
residents and customers to
celebrate with the fourth
generation. “To understand
our business, I think it’s
important to take a look at
where we came from and how
the family has progressed
over the last 50 years,” says
Steve Anello, owner of
Anello Fence (not affiliated
with any other company).
As immigration began to
taper off in the mid-1950s, a
key local character found his
way onto American soil from
his homeland of Italy. Emilio
Anello, Sr. came to the
United States in 1956 and
began working for a local
company in the fence indus-
try. Little did he know, this
move would set the pace for
the rest of his life and impact
his family for generations to
come. Shortly after breaking
into the fence industry,
Emilio was joined by his
brother Joseph and his father
Salvatore Anello. Seven
years later, on Route 23 in
Wayne, Anello Bros, Inc. was
born. “Emilio Anello, the
founding father of Anello
Bros., Inc. and the person
responsible for making the
Anello name synonymous
with fences, came to America
in search of an opportunity;
he is the very embodiment of
what the American dream
looks like,” says Steve
Anello, Emilio’s son.
Over the course of the
next decade and a half, the
company outgrew its Wayne
location and moved to a larg-
er location. Salvatore would
travel between New Jersey
and his hometown in Italy
frequently to accommodate
his Italian real estate business
while playing an invaluable
role in his sons’ fence compa-
ny until 1968 when he
retired.
Throughout the years,
Anello Bros., Inc. improved
their trade, constantly push-
ing to remain a frontrunner
in the fencing industry.
Anello was not only the
largest retail fence establish-
ment in Northern New
Jersey, but also was a major
wholesale supplier to many
other fence companies in the
Northeast. In 1967, Emilio
and Joseph purchased and ran
a saw mill in Vermont to
manufacture their own wood
fences. The saw mill supplied
not only their store but many
other fence companies, and
ultimately many homeown-
ers. 1974 brought on the
addition of self-manufactured
chain link fences by running
three machines twenty-four
hours a day. Finally in 1999,
Steve Anello began fabricat-
ing PVC fences as the very
first in the area to do so.
Currently Anello is one of
North Jersey’s largest suppli-
ers of the product and now
runs three PVC machines
daily. Today Anello Fence,
LLC owned by Steve Anello
offers several additional fenc-
ing varieties like arbors, mail-
boxes, mailbox posts, bamboo
50 years of fences! The Anello family

•Mothers & More is a not-for-profit group
for both stay-at-home and working
moms. It features monthly meetings,
playgroups, mom-and-tot outings, mom-
fence and aluminum fences.
Steve Anello is now introduc-
ing his three sons to the fence
industry, making four genera-
tions within the industry.
Anello Fence is one of
Northern New Jersey’s top
fencing contractors. Their
goal is to provide the best
quality fence while still
remaining an affordable solu-
tion for your needs. Fences
are manufactured to face the
test of time, all the while
reflecting a timeless beauty.
After 50 years in the industry,
the Anello family often mar-
vels at the progress of the pre-
vious five decades. “It is such
an honor to be where I am
right now, bringing up my
three sons as the fourth gen-
eration of Anello’s in the
fence industry and at the
same time honoring my
father and his brother Joseph
for all of their hard work over
the years,” explains Steve
Anello.
Celebrate 50 years of
family fencing with Anello
Fence. Do not be misled by
imitators; there is only one
Anello Fence in one location
- 50 Route 23 North,

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 375
degrees F. Line a sheet pan with
parchment paper.
Combine the flour, sugar,
baking soda, and salt in the
bowl of an electric mixer fitted
with the paddle attachment.
Add the butter and mix on low
speed until the butter is mixed
into the flour.
With a fork, lightly beat
the buttermilk, egg, and orange
zest together in a measuring
cup. With the mixer on low
speed, slowly add the butter-
milk mixture to the flour mix-
ture. Combine the currants
with 1 tablespoon of flour and
mix into the dough. It will be
very wet.
Dump the dough onto a
well-floured board and knead it
a few times into a round loaf.
Place the loaf on the prepared
sheet pan and lightly cut an X
into the top of the bread with a
serrated knife. Bake for 45 to 55
minutes, or until a cake tester
comes out clean. When you tap
the loaf, it will have a hollow
sound.
Cool on a baking rack.
Serve warm or at room tem-
perature

O
nce they have walked
down the aisle and
returned from their
honeymoon, the next step
many newlyweds look forward
to is buying their own home
together. Though there are
deals to be had in any real
estate market, the cost of home
ownership is something many
newly married couples cannot
instantly afford. That’s espe-
cially true for the increasing
number of couples who pay for
their weddings without any
help from family.
Such couples still harbor
the dream of home ownership,
but realizing that dream can
seem like a daunting task. But
the task grows easier when cou-
ples begin to exercise some
financial restraint. There are
many cost-cutting measures
newlyweds can take that will
help them save money for
whatever their next big pur-
chase might be.
•Learn to cook. Learning to
cook is not only a rewarding
lesson, but also one that can
help newlyweds save a signifi-
cant amount of money.
Contrary to popular belief,
cooking isn’t terribly difficult.
Gourmet meals might require
some natural culinary inclina-
tion, but more standard fare
can be as simple as following a
recipe. For those who have
never stepped foot in a kitchen,
it might be a good idea to take
cooking lessons. Such lessons
are typically inexpensive, and
the cost of the lessons will be
recouped once couples start
Q
uestion: Why is
renter’s insurance
important?
Answer: Renter’s insurance
provides coverage for the
personal content you own. It
protects extensively, ranging
from your socks to your
MacBook Air. Specialty
items such as antique jewelry,
musical instruments, collec-
tor’s items, even handguns
can have separate floaters or
increased coverage.
With your renter’s policy,
you will have liability cover-
age, as well. Let’s say, for exam-
ple, that it’s the week after
your wonderful Super Bowl
colloquy. You receive a hand-
delivered notice letting you
know that you’ve been served
because that mysterious patron
at your gathering ended up in
the hospital from the fall he
sustained in your home while
he was extremely intoxicated.
With renter’s insurance, you
have a policy that will keep
your savings or future wages
pretty well secured.
The gem for a renter’s
policy is that your personal
belongings anywhere around
the world are covered. If you
are vacationing in Jamaica
and your Dooney & Bourke
suddenly grows the feet of a
track star, it is still covered.
The outlay for a renter’s policy
is very minimal, while the
protection is very vast.
Whether renting an apart-
ment with eight other neigh-
bors on your floor, or renting a
private dwelling with your
own backyard, renter’s
Insurance is a very wise
investment.
From apartment fires to
the random burglary, after
something bad happens is not
the time to secure your
belongings. Contact me today
and let’s protect the legacy
you build.

cooking for themselves and
stop relying on costly meals out
on the town. Couples who
learn to cook together might
also find it strengthens their
relationship.
•Downgrade the apartment.
Non-married couples who live
together commonly prefer
two-bedroom apartments,
using the second bedroom as a
guest bedroom/home office.
The cost of a two bedroom is
more than a one bedroom, but
non-married couples often feel
it’s worth the extra money. No
matter how negligible that
extra cost is, newlyweds saving
for a home should consider
downgrading to a one bed-
room (unless one person works
from home). This can help
save some money on a month-
ly basis, enabling newlyweds
to inch closer to the day when
they will have enough money
saved to make a down pay-
ment on their own home,
which can then have as many
rooms as couples prefer.
•Furnish the home piecemeal.
One advantage today’s newly-
weds have over those of yester-
year is that many live together
before walking down the aisle.
This means they’re not really
starting from scratch once
they get married. A typical
modern couple already has
enough furniture and other
household items to get by once
they have moved into their
new home. For those con-
cerned about how they’re
going to furnish a home once
they’ve signed on the dotted
line, one way to cut those costs
is to hang on to what you cur-
rently have, and steadily buy
new items one-by-one after
you’ve moved in. Rather than
facing the hefty bill couples
can expect if they buy every-
thing at once, newlyweds who
go the piecemeal route will
find it’s much less stressful to
furnish a home piece-by-piece.
•Find ways to make home
ownership work. First time
home buyers are typically
shocked at the cost of home
ownership. However, commu-
nities might offer a class that
explains the home-buying
process and how best to navi-
gate it. Some lenders even
offer a lower interest rate to
prospective buyers who have
completed such a class. Such a
discount can save couples a
significant amount of money
over the course of the mort-
gage, and the classes can give
couples a better understanding
of what they’re getting into by
buying a home.

N
owadays, homeown-
ers looking to sell
their homes know
it’s not as easy to do so as it
might have been a few years
ago. A struggling economy has
made it difficult for many
homeowners to sell their
homes for a price they’re com-
fortable with.
But the sagging economy
is not the only thing can make
it difficult to sell a home. In
fact, a host of other things,
some obvious but some not so
obvious, can hurt a home’s
value as well.
•Location: A home’s location
is arguably its best or worst
selling point. A home in a
great location won’t be as dif-
ficult to sell as a home in a bad
neighborhood. But location
goes beyond a neighborhood’s
reputation, especially in
recent years. Homeowners
who live in a neighborhood or
development with many fore-
closures might find those fore-
closed properties are hurting
their own home’s value. Lots
of foreclosures could negative-
ly affect a neighborhood’s rep-
utation, which might make a
home within that neighbor-
hood less attractive to
prospective buyers.
•Appearance: A home’s
appearance is another obvious
variable that might affect its
resale value. Homeowners
might want their home to
reflect their own individuality,
but that’s not going to help
when the time comes to sell
the home. If the exterior paint
is out of the ordinary, then it
might be wise to choose a
more traditional or conserva-
tive color before erecting the
“For Sale” sign out front. The
same goes for a home’s interi-
or. If the interior design is
especially unique, a more tra-
ditional interior decor might
help the home sell faster.
•Size and style: Another
thing to consider when selling
a home is its size and style. A
home that stands out on the
block might be an attention-
grabber, but that’s not always
attractive to prospective buy-
ers. For instance, a colonial
sitting in the middle of a street
filled with contemporary
homes will stand out, but like-
ly for all the wrong reasons. It
will likely appear dated and
out of place, which is some-
thing buyers might not want.

Factors that might
hurt a home’s
value
In addition, if the home is con-
siderably larger or smaller than
the surrounding homes, then
this could hurt its value.
•Non-conformity: In many
ways, conformity is not consid-
ered an admirable trait. But
when selling a home, conform-
ity could make the difference
between a home selling quickly
or remaining on the market for
months if not years. When
shopping for a home, buyers
often shop in certain neighbor-
hoods and towns and might see
many different homes within a
given ZIP code. Homeowners
with homes that don’t conform
to others in the area might find
it difficult to sell their homes.
For instance, homeowners try-
ing to sell a two bedroom home
in a neighborhood filled with
three bedroom homes might
notice their home’s value is not
as high as that of surrounding
homes, regardless of the neigh-
borhood or how similar the
home’s exterior is to surround-
ing homes.
•Age: Older homes might
have character and a sense of
nostalgia, but appraisers take
age into consideration when
determining a home’s value.
And buyers tend to lean
toward newer homes for a
number of reasons, not the
least of which is the feeling
that newer homes have far
more modern amenities than
older homes.
When it comes to a
home’s value, there are a host
of things that could ultimate-
ly increase or decrease that
value in the eyes of prospec-
tive buyers.
