When planning an extended trip, recruit a close friend or trusted neighbor to check on your house while you’re away. Give that person a list of tasks that need attention, such as watering houseplants or bringing in the mail, and have your friend inspect your appliances and locks. You don’t want to come home to a flooded basement or busted refrigerator (complete with spoiled food). Make sure this person knows how to reach you in case of an emergency.
