The dog days of summer have me thinking …

Wow, it’s hot here!  We’re in an official heat wave which has me thinking about home improvements.

Fall home improvements.

Since we have reached 10,000 homes in ROCs and founded a cooperative with other community management companies – what you see as Innovia in ROC Mall – we’re beginning to really rack up some unique and unmatched discounts for homeowners/members in ROCs across the country.

Please check out ROC Mall’s home page for four unique opportunities:

  • Save

  1. Mobile Home Parts Store – 10% discount on all purchases!
  2. Sherwin Williams – Preferred Customer Status and savings!
  3. Office Max – National pricing that will impress you.  Try it!
  4. – 25% off listing your home for sale.  You can do it yourself and get online where 85% of all home searches start.

I used Sherwin Williams and got 30% off.  Show your card before you order because I got a better quality paint, too!

You can also click through to the Innovia site from ROC Mall and find other savings.  Please explore and let us know what you find for savings.

I’m also working with a ROC on beta testing a bulk propane purchase and two ROCs on a cable TV savings method.  If they prove worthy, you’ll hear about them here on

And, if you have ideas for savings, please let me or Mike Bullard know and we’ll look into it.

OK, back to my fall shopping list … paint and printer cartridges … work for me.  (Oh, and note to self, ask Martha if she has things on her list.)
