solutions WITH TEAMDAU WELLNESS

Vicki Dau is on a mission. She and her husband, Tom, are out to change the way we look at health. Their passion project is TeamDau Wellness, a provider of quality alternative wellness solutions. Most of the products they advocate have been a part of Vicki and Tom’s own journey for health, which first began 25 years ago. It’s clear that Vicki looks at fitness differently than most. She is quick to draw a distinction between the weight loss promised by most programs and the “weight release” that TeamDau Wellness promotes. She explains, “When you lose something, a part of you may try to find it again.” After decades of experience in the health industry, Vicki has a knowledge base that allows her to determine which products are legitimate. She and Tom are true wellness connoisseurs. They use their experience to personally curate which products they offer customers. They encourage clients to “ask a lot of questions” and discover the mental and emotional sides of fitness. Vicki men-

tions how they strive to teach people how to address issues without prescription medication. She also emphasizes the importance of total body wellness and laments the way that “our country is under so much stress.” Relieving stress is a key component of TeamDau Wellness. Their results speak for themselves. This past Thanksgiving, they received an emotional call from a client expressing her gratitude and crediting TeamDau

SHOPPING

SECRETS Shopping is one of our greatest pastimes, but with the impact it has on our budget and time, sometimes we need to invoke therapy on our retailing habits. Here are some shopping secrets to help you survive any recurring shopping sprees. b y

F A R E E H A

MAKE A LIST & CHECK IT TWICE Instead of shopping blindly, write down what you actually need before you leave your house. That way, the sparkly signs and new designs won’t lure you into a house full of needless merchandise.

TAKE YOUR TIME Shopping when you’re rushed for time may mean that you overlook some quality items and spend more than you actually need to. Give yourself time to dig through the sales aisle messes in the store and time to compare prices online before shopping.

LEFT IS RIGHT Research shows that most people turn right when they enter a store, and retailers know that. So you’ll find glistening signs and high-priced merchandise to the right. Do yourself a favor and avoid the temptation by turning left when you enter a store.

TRY A NEW PLACE It’s tempting to frequent the same few retailers, but expanding your shopping realm can offer you better deals and a larger selection. Grab a WhereYouShop voucher for one of your local retailers and who knows, maybe you’ll add to your list of favorites.

A L I

BUDGET YOUR TIME & MONEY If you have a set budget you don’t want to exceed, shop with cash or a debit card instead of a credit card. That way, the appeal of snazzy yet expensive items can’t drag you deeper into debt. Keep a written shopping budget each month for future planning.

SEARCH BEFORE YOU SPEND Browse the sale or clearance section before you empty your wallet on a regular-priced item. You can also search for deals on demand on WhereYouShop for money-saving, ongoing deals in your area.

GO ONLINE BEFORE OUTSIDE Thanks to the Internet, shopping is at your fingertips. Save the trip of fighting through the crowds and fill your closet with quality items from retailers like Bungalow BeBe, an online clothing store that offers children’s clothes made with 100% organic cotton.

Plant Your Escape

WITH JAMIE HOFFMAN b y

C O L I N

S C H W A R T Z

After observing the lack of horizontal planting space in most Chicago high-rise buildings and condos, Jamie Hoffman made the bold choice to “help people grow vertical” with wall gardens. Thus, her brainchild business Chicago Earth was born several years ago, and she has been crafting and selling her living pieces of art ever since. Depicting Hoffman as someone who took a chance on a great idea is accurate, but also incomplete. The truth is that she already had experience in the construction and roofing industries, working as a marketer. This role led her to research services her company offered, like rooftop gardening. “I started to learn about green roofs, and I was fascinated,” Hoffman said. That fascination continues today, as Hoffman regularly does rooftop garden work like her recent project at The Park Monroe, a luxury condo building in Chicago. For people just looking to beautify their individual spaces though, Chicago Earth offers personalized vertical gardens for your home.

VALUE $150 S A V E

Hoffman is an admitted perfectionist, and she remains passionate and enthusiastic about beautifying living spaces. She says that with her work “the biggest rush is coming up with an idea and seeing someone react and love it.” She strives to leave people with “no idea how the garden got there, because it’s so lush and striking.” It is this dedication, as well as her creativity, that sets Chicago Earth apart and keeps satisfied customers coming back.

HERE’S THE DEAL While movie posters and Monet prints can give your home a bit of character, a wall plant is sure to catch everyone’s attention. Liven up your walls and make the ceilings jealous with this deal for 50% off a vertical garden by Chicago Earth. Choose from either a richly colored hanging pocket garden for your bland brick wall, or a planter’s box for your lonely balcony. DEAL CODE: 4E02660
