Simple Ways to Prevent Losses
According to the Insurance Information Institute’s latest report about 1 in every 50 homes will file an insurance claim each year. The two reasons topping the chart as the most common losses are wind plus hail and water damage, followed by property damage and theft. Some losses may be at least partially preventable.
We would like to provide some tips and info on how you could potentially avoid a claim in the coming year.
- Check all water line connections; this includes appliances in your kitchen, bathroom, wash room and outside hose attachments
- Inspect all drainage and vents of your home, make sure to sweep out and flush exterior gutters, degrease and clean range hoods as well as unclogging sink/tub drains monthly
- Trim trees around the home that could potentially cause damage to the siding of your roof, upkeep your lawn and check the sprinkler system
- Check exterior home for areas that show cracks or need to be repainted and refinished as needed
- Inspect roof for loose or missing shingles, hire a licensed contractor to repair any damage and keep proof of completed work
Install a Wi-Fi Water Detector. Wi-Fi Water Detectors, particularly those that automatically shut off the water supply to your home if they detect inconsistency in the flow of water, may reduce – or even eliminate – significant water leaks. We have partnered with FLO Technologies to offer you half off a FLO by Moen device – with free installation! Visit www.meetflo.com/western-mutual for more information. If you elect to use another Wi-Fi Water Detection System with automatic water shutoff, we will reimburse you up to $200 for the cost of the system. You may also be eligible for a policy discount when you install a Wi-Fi Water Detection system.

Family Fun Ideas for Winter
Is it too cold to go outside? We have some suggestions that’ll let you enjoy the winter season while staying indoors.
If you have little ones to entertain and keep busy, try baking cookies and letting them decorate to show off their creativity. Build forts with blankets and pillows for an unforgettable fun time.
Challenge them to complete a puzzle or work on their board game expertise.
If it’s just you and your better half, we say take it easy with a movie marathon and popcorn.
Movies aren’t your thing? Test your culinary skills by creating a meal with only the items in your pantry. And there is always the option of playing music and tackling the house cleaning with some dance moves. Whatever you choose, stay warm and let us know your cold weather ideas.

Roaring 20’s to 2020
The roaring 20’s were grand in many ways, from art expression to fashion and social changes. The 20’s allowed for social and economic growth, women’s rights and the freedom to manifest our truest self. Fast-forward 100 years and the 20s are here again, but with bigger goals and greater opportunities. We invite you to welcome in the New Year with positivity, abundant health and perpetual bliss. And just like they did back then, continue being optimistic and wanting to better the world for those who are here after us. Let’s make these next ten years grand so that 100 years from now they will speak about the change we made just like we are now. Here’s to the next ten years!

It’s the first of the month, the beginning of a new year and the start to a decade. Take a moment to write down a line or two of positivity or goals that you plan to achieve in the next ten years. Whether that’s planning more adventures, taking more time for yourself, or simply saying thank you even on your bad days, a mission statement allows you to remember the growth that you have set forth for yourself. Make it short and memorable so that you can practice it every day. Even a small step in the right direction is better than none at all. Share some of your mission statements below.

Christmas Gift Guide
With just a few days left before Jolly Old Saint Nick comes down our chimneys to place gifts for you and yours under the tree, we want to make sure your holiday gift buying is all taken care of and completed.
So what do you do when you run out of gift ideas? Here are some tips to help you make this holiday season unforgettable.
If you can’t think of what to get that special someone, especially if you’re already out shopping, scroll through their social media for items or brands that they post with or about.
When it comes to our parents, gift buying is a little more difficult even though they usually don’t ask for anything. But think of hobbies, restaurants, or their daily routine and what items they use daily. No matter how big or small they will remember you gifted it to them when they go to use it.
And of course, the kids. Contrary to popular belief they are the hardest to shop for as so many options exist and choosing the right one is a 50/50 chance. Kids will typically use toys for a short period of time and then move on. However, we have a trick that could save the day! Buy small gifts, wrap individually and turn into one BIG bundled surprise. Their love for the holiday isn’t really based on what they get but how many and how big their gift is.
Try these tips out and let us know what tricks you have up your sleeve, Happy Holidays.
