I don't want to spend a little time on vacation worrying about things at home.-It's not about the house, my dog, my plants, it's not about whether I 've turned on the appliances that I shouldn't have turned on, it's not about whether the bill will be late if I don't pay before I come backI travel a lot, long enough, and I 've learned some tough things, so I want to write this and tell you how to take care of yourself while on vacation-A variety of lists-This is true for me and others.Many of these proposals may be negative.But sometimes, when we rush out, or in our excitement about traveling, we can ignore taking care of them.So, before you close the door behind you, take a few minutes to review and make sure you're done--Or at least considered.-Protect your house, your pets and plants, and your belongings....Don't let them accumulate.So the project, "we don't go home!\ "Your box is stuffed with a bunch of mail and a bunch of newspapers, so this is a must --Do it if you plan to leave more than a long weekend.One option is to have a trusted neighbor or friend pick up your mail and newspaper while you are on vacation, or, before you come back, you can suspend your mail delivery and newspaper subscription.As for the newspaper, just call the office and let them know.They can help you with the newspaper..You can indicate the start date to be re-delivered, including all messages you hold, or call 1-800-ASK-USPS when you come back and ask for a fresh delivery.Please note: If you go to the local post office to pick up the mail you hold, the carrier holding the mail may be on the route and cannot find the mail.When you come back, it's more efficient to wait for your carrier to deliver all your accumulated mail than to try to get it.Don't lose the time it takes to grow up.Most likely, if you leave for a week or two, most indoor plants will survive if they are fully watered before you leave.They may limp and wither when you come back, but a good watering may revive them.But why put your precious plants under such pressure?There are a lot of things you can do to ease their thirst and meet their needs when you are away.Of course, one possibility is to ask friends, neighbors, family members --member, house-sitter or pet-The babysitter will take care of them, especially if the person has come to pick up the mail and newspaperPet Care, lawn care or just to check the house.This may be a big request for someone, though, unless you have responded or are about to respond, or they are being compensated in some way.Close the blinds or curtains in warm weather to keep your house cool.Plants need less water when they are cool.For up to two weeks, water bulbs or water bulbs are used that release moisture according to the needs of the plant.(Please look at the light bulb below.Create a mini greenhouse: for small plants, you can soak in cold water for about 20 minutes.Bubbles rise when the soil is saturated.Keep the plants submerged until you can't see more bubbles.This means there is no remaining air or dry soil.Then let the plants sit down until they stop dripping.Next, wrap the plants and flowerpots in transparent plastic and expand like a balloon until no leaves touch the plastic.This can be achieved by sticking a pin or pencil to the soil to keep the plastic away from the plant.Finally, poke holes in the bag for air circulation and tie the plastic balloons.When the moisture evaporates, it is attached to the plastic, and when the air cools, it drops back to the plant.(Make sure these plants do not have direct sunlight and when they are wrapped in plastic, direct sunlight can cause them to overheat.Water when you're traveling-This is the watering bulb I mentioned....This was one time I used the watering bulb for up to two weeks and was successful.Larger house plants may require two or more bulbs in order to provide enough water while you are away.Just put the end of the tube under the faucet, then turn them over and stick the tube to the soil to fill the globe.These can also be used for hanging plants and patio plants.This is another version.You can use these automatic plant fertilizers and feeders.When the surrounding soil becomes a dryer, this product automatically draws water from nearby containers, not ceramic spikes.The spike supplements the water at the same rate at which the plant absorbs moisture from the soil, thus maintaining the optimal moisture level.Perfect for keeping plants watered while on vacation or when you are too busy to take care of the plants.Our relaxing holidays are stressful for our pets.This is what I care most when I am away, and I believe most other pets are like this --owners.If I can't take my dog with me, I want to be sure that she is under good control to minimize or eliminate her stress when I enjoy life.: Kennel and boarding facilities are cleaner than before, with fewer animals and more concentration of personal attention, but there are still a lot of bad apples.Therefore, it is necessary to get advice from other pet owners you know and check the inside and outside facilities before committing.You may also want to consult a Better Business Bureau and your vet to see if there are any complaints.Some veterinarians also offer boarding services, which can be a consideration if your pet has special medical needs.Pet-: Often, a pet-The Sitter is not more expensive than a kennel or boarder and can even be cheaper if you have more than one pet.With this arrangement, our pets can live in a familiar environment.-The usual sights, smells, sounds and places to take a nap-They are not exposed to unfamiliar animals.You can arrange a pet.The babysitter stops more than once a day and they usually offer other services such as bringing mail and watering the plants, but usually at an extra cost.Be sure to ask and check references and meet with petsBabysitter at home so you can take them around and see them as well as your pets.: Although pet hotels and resorts are usually quite expensive, they are becoming more and more popular as they provide a more personalized focus for your pets.Many people love their fourLegroom guests with spa servicesPrivate rooms and play areas are provided, such as treatment and pedicure.How much will your pet like, it really depends on the animal's personality.Mine?I'm pretty sure she will lift her nose and put her tail between her legs.Leave the pet alone at home?: I know that some people will leave their pets alone in a relatively short period of time, and when we raise cats, we do the same ourselves.We have an automatic feeder, a watering can and a bin large enough that when we come back, the value of long weekend use will not be too bad for cats or us.But I personally would never leave my dog unattended, even with a dog door and a fence --in yard.First of all, I think it will be stressful for her to be alone for a long time, not to mention that I won't stop her barking and disturbing neighbors, especially at night.In addition to that, she may be physically in trouble (I .E.The collar on the fence), even thought of something like this ---Or someone brought her.-I will bother me endlessly when I am away.Do you use a kennel or a pet?Baby sitter when you're on vacation?Which one do you prefer?And why?Have some knowledge of your property.Turning on the lights for a while at night can deter potential --be burglars.We use the timer to turn on the lights in the living room for a few hours, usually between nine o'clock P.M. and 6.This light can be seen from the front and back of the house through the blinds.We use energy-Compact fluorescent light bulb for energy saving.External light can be more deterrent than internal lighting, so you can also set one or two on the timer-One in front and one in the back.(We also use compact fluorescent bulbs outdoors.A little light can go a long way.Set the time and duration of the lights on and off.The Intermatic light and electrical timer have two on/off settings and come with a lighted dial.Simple to include-Automatic Control of lamps and appliances, as well as night lights.15 Am p capacity control lighting and there is a manual on/off switch to increase safety.Another home safety option is motion detectorLight it up if it moves.The solar-Built-in safety sensor for LED lightsIn motion sensors.This is ideal for backyard safety and walkway lighting as it opens whenever a move is detected.16-there is a removable solar panel on itIt can also be used for lighting in garden cabins and other ancillary buildings or indoor rooms.Since it is powered by solar power, no wires, no electrical requirements, no battery replacement or bulb maintenance, it is easy for anyone to install.Another motion recommendedThis Heath Zenith safety light features level 2 lighting and low level lightingAdjustable timer.Timer settings include--Off, 3-hour, 6-Hours, or dusk to dawn.When motion is detected, the full-on safety light lights up, and the optional light timer allows you to select a few minutes of settings before automatically turning off the light after motion stops.The automatic photoelectric tube is deactivated in the White Angel equipment, and the pulse counting technology reduces false sensing of wind and rain.There is a manual cover feature, so you can turn off or turn on the lights at your convenience using the existing indoor wall switch.This unit allows the light to last all night when needed.Solar-This one does not require wiring and you can install solar panels anywhere.The device can detect motion beyond 30 feet in a range of 180 degrees.Protect your home when you are out of town or even just at work.If there is a slider window, place a pin between the frame and the sliding panel.PINs should be shortened to an exact length so you can get in and out of the inside, but it doesn't allow the window to open for more than a quarter-inch.For windows that open up, you can use pins (or two) placed vertically between the top of the sliding panel and the upper frame ).It has to be quite comfortable so it doesn't fall off.Check all windows to make sure they are locked.Consider leaving your own car in the driveway instead of in the garage, or having the neighbors use your driveway while you're away.If you trust a neighbor enough to let them know how long you will leave, if you wish someone to go to your home while you are away.Please provide instructions and contact information if they need to report something unusual.If you can't ask a neighbor, consider having a good friend come and have a look at it once in a while.You may want to leave them a spare key in case they need to check the inside or call them in if you forget something.Use a padlock on the door to the backyard.Don't forget those things from your backyard to the alley.Recently, I 've heard that criminals use Twitter to target uninhabited homes when owners are out on vacation.Although we are excited about the upcoming trips, it is better not to announce them on public social forums, especially dates.Even talking about details on Facebook is not a hot idea.First of all, many of us are "friends" and we don't know much about all of them or maybe just have an online connection with them.Try to resist this impulse and wait until you come back and post a review about your trip.(I say this to myself like anyone else.I must have been guilty of this.The temperature in the House does not need to be as comfortable as when you go home.If we go out for a while in the winter, we will reduce the thermostat to about 52 degrees.All our indoor plants are OK.Change to holiday settings.Turn off the strip switch and unplug the computer, etc.We pulled out the TV and stereo, computer, cable box and other non-Basic electronic products.We also don't leave any batteries on the charger or unplug the charger.Usually, when we leave, there is almost nothing in the fridge.So we refused.-That is to say, turn the dial to a higher number and make it warm.There is no need to work so hard to cool off an almost empty space.We walked through the bathroom and kitchen and gave the faucet a little extra turn to make sure there was no dripping water.If you have a toilet it will run itself and I will turn off the valve below.Solve the problem as soon as possible.It can use a lot of water.If we have recently used a faucet outside, I will check it too.Of course, the hose should be removed in winter.Do not pay late fees.I, I like to pay bills as soon as I get them, so I always think ahead of time about which bills I will receive by mail or email during the holidays.Most bills usually have a grace period, so if you leave for a week or two, there is a good chance that you will have time to receive the payment, either by mail or by email, as long as you send it as soon as you come back.But if you don't want to think about BillPay the right money when you go home-There's always a lot of other things to do.-Then some pre-thought can eliminate this chore.If your bill is always the same, such as cable TV or Internet services, health insurance or monthly membership, then just send the payment before you leave.Set up automatic withdrawals.Contact billing to ask if they are automaticIf so, how to arrange.Typically, the company will send an email (preferred) or a paper statement showing the amount of the withdrawal each month, so that you can enter it in the checkbook and for any unusualWe always use automaticOur mortgage withdrawal, so we never need to think about it when we are away.Put the bill on your credit card.This is another option for some companies.Remember that you also have to pay your credit card bill when you are away in case it expires.But at least that can help consolidate.Pay rent in advance.Based on my experience of working in the rental office for a period of time, many landlords will not accept maildated checks.So you must either advance.Pay your rent, mail from anywhere you are on vacation, or have a trusted friend or family put down on time while you are away.Another option is to have your bank send a check if you can surf the Internet and bank online, pay attention to how many days the check will take to arrive.Late is late for most landlords and will be charged.What about the nanny?A possible all-in-Having someone stay in your home can take care of a lot, most even everythingNotes mentioned-Your mail and newspaper, any other courier you may expect (or some courier you don't expect), plant care, pet care, safety, drip tap or mobile toilet, even lawn and garden care.(Although you may not want them to pay your bill...but who knows?Sometimes it can be done by friends or family.We\'ve house-It's really fun to sit here whether it's friends or family.A great change in the scenery, not to mention once, into the hot tub.The owner even bought us a bunch of groceries for us to use and left a gift voucher for our favorite sushi restaurant.What a deal!But there won't always be a friend or family member who is willing or able to sit at home, so the rented house --Nanny is a good choice.Here are some suggestions for renting a house.Ask friends, family and/or neighbors if they can recommend a responsible and trustworthy person even if that person never has a house --sat before.View references.See the house ~The nanny in your house.Write down what you want to do, when and how.Write down the rules.No guest) and rules of the homeowner association (I .E.No parking on the street ).Have a back-Plan it out in case your houseThe Sitter is canceled at the last minute or has to leave before you come back.Ask neighbors, friends or family to come and have a look, maybe once a week.(Personally, I will tell the House-I was going to do this.And make sure it's not too early in the morning or evening.Post important phone numbers such as utilities and local emergency contacts including friends or family.If you can't find anyone by referral, you can try the house-Family World..In fact, searching online, you will find that there is no shortage of these websites.You can also check your local Yellow PagesSitting service in the area.Looking for a long termterm house-sitter?If you're out for more than a week or two--It may be a month or more, or it may be seasonal.-.You can post ads, or

you will ask someone to do.and house-Sit in the case, not as the owner.Still, I think it's a great publication.Tell us what you think about using the house.Do you have a house?
