Pre-holiday Checklist

Going away for the holidays? We used to go away every December while our girls were growing up. We had a cottage at the sea, and would spend three weeks there. In the early days we would need to do a big shop here before we left, and ensure we had everything we needed. I had lists (I love my lists) to make it easier to organise and ensure we didn’t forget anything. Packing list, shopping list, ‘things to take with us’ list, and the ‘what to do before we go’ list! This list was really important if we didn’t have people staying in our home while we were away.

So, this is my pre-holiday checklist:

  • Trim lawn and tidy garden just before you go
  • Leave keys and contact details with someone nearby
  • Check all taps to ensure no dripping
  • Ask someone to collect post
  • Cancel newspaper
  • Switch off geyser
  • Unplug all electronic equipment
  • Empty bins
  • Clear out fridge and leave clean
  • Set timers for lights if you can
  • Ask a neighbour to pop in and open windows and curtains periodically

And above all, once all the lists are ticked and the bags are packed, relax and have a great holiday!
