I started tweeking my check off lists for an upcoming domestic trip. I was updating my house check-off list and wanted to see if I was missing anything. My mother used to live near me so she would get my mail, newspapers, etc when I travelled and always kept an eye out on our house. She has moved to a different state so now I have to fend for myself.
What steps do you take to prepare your house for upcoming travel?
Stop newspaper and US mail delivery, shut off water valve to washing machine, unplug unused electronics, lights on timers, notify neighbors (the ones that you like and trust LOL), remove trash, etc?
Does anyone shut the water off to their house? I'm so afraid of coming home to a flood from a broken pipe.
Any other items that are on your check-off list?
