March is the time of year where everyone escapes the cold for a tropical vacation or a mini getaway from the responsibilities of the real world. Traveling can be stressful, so it’s important to prep your home so you don’t come back to more stress!

1)    Tidy Up!

No one wants to come back to a dirty house. It is easy to forget about this because all you’re worried about is packing and not forgetting anything. Try to set aside an hour to tidy up before you head to the airport! J


2)    Clean out your Fridge

If you are going to be away for a while, take a look in your fridge to see if you have any food that may spoil when you’re away.


3)    Take out the Trash

Remembering to do so will help not coming back to a smelly home and pests galore J


4)    Take Precautions for Fire

Before you leave, make sure to unplug all electronics around the house that don’t need power while you’re gone – such as small kitchen appliances. This will also save on your electrical bill!


5)    Program your Thermostat and Energy Efficiency

This is a very important one, especially if you are leaving behind cold weather. Make sure you have your heat on, so your pipes don’t freeze!


6)    Double Check all Windows and Doors!

You want to have a piece of mind on vacation, and not second guessing yourself if you remembered to lock your windows and doors.


7)    Ask a Friend to Check Up and Gather Mail

It is actually safer to have a friend gather your mail than putting your mail on hold at the post office. People may start to realize you are gone and that there is a vacant house.


If you are travelling somewhere for Spring Break, safe travels and have a wonderful time! J
