A Vacation Checklist
(Before you leave!)

This simple vacation checklist is provided to make sure your home and regular life are taken care of while you are away.

This list includes: calling your credit card companies, turning off your water, mail, newspapers and more.

Tell your boss you will be on vacation (preferably 1-2 months in advance).

Stop your Mail (or have a neighbor pick it up) if you are going to be gone for more than a few days.

Turn up the temperature that AC comes on (spring/summer). Saves electricity.

Turn down temperature that Heat comes on (fall/winter). Saves electricity.

Stop your newspaper(s)

Ask a friend (or neighbor) to check on your house when you are gone

Call your credit card companies to tell them you will be out of town and which cities(countries) you will be in. Otherwise, when you use your credit card in a different city they may stop it's usage. They do this to protect you in case your card had been stolen.

Have someone take care of your animals/plants when you are away.

Consider turning off your water at the source. This protects you in case you have a pipe burst. This is rare, but messy if it happens!

Enjoy your vacation!
