Good tips! I usually spend as much time getting my house ready for our trips as I spend getting ourselves ready to go!

Really important if you want a welcoming return from your trip.

Best regards,

I do the same Judy! Nothing makes me happier than coming back to a clean, organized home after being gone for several days, just one less thing to do when coming back, although the unpacking is such a big hassle!

So glad you put on your list not to change your voicemail message to say you are away. You also shouldn't tweet that you're going on a trip or write about it in your blog unless you have someone house sitting.  The last thing you want is to end your trip by coming home to a house that has been broken into.  Great list, Chris and Maria.

Emcee, I wholeheartedly agree with you. It amazes me how detailed people get when tweeting or facebooking that they're on vacation, giving exact dates of departure/arrival, where they're staying, etc. (so risky these days)...thanks for the input!
