  • Pay all bills that are due while you're away?

  • Lower the thermostat and hot water settings?
  • Leave contact telephone numbers and itinerary with family/friends?
  • Leave forwarding addresses?

Before you leave...

Because it is important that your home look occupied while you're away, did you arrange for someone to:

  • Shovel the snow/cut the grass?
  • Collect your mail?
  • Check your house thoroughly? (Inform this person where water shut-off and electrical mains are located and supply the numbers of reliable contractors-plumbers, electrician, etc.)
  • Collect your newspapers? (if you have not stopped delivery)
