Things To Do Before You Leave For A Vacation

Hello Everyone

Below is the checklist for you before you leave for a vacation. I am sure everyone must be doing most of these things, but to be safer it is advisable to follow this list.

  • Keep the dustbin out/empty the dustbin.
  • Keep milk in freezer. Milk does not get spoiled in freezer even if it is not boiled. I keep milk bags as it is in freezer for even 2 weeks while on vacation.
  • Clean the platform. You do not want to enter the messy kitchen when you are back from vacation.
  • Water the plants if any
  • Clear the fridge. Any items which may get spoiled and before your kitchen starts stinking, keep it clean.
  • Switch off all the light and remove the plugs from the sockets. We don’t want short circuit while we are vacationing.
  • Close all the water taps. We dont want to waste limited resource like water.
  • Switch off the door bell.
  • Inform maid not to come and take her contact number for emergency.
  • Inform newspaper wala not to deliver newspaper
  • Call milk man not to deliver milk.
  • Inform other maid not to come like cook, baby malishwali etc
  • Keep all footwear inside the main door.
  • Latch all doors properly
  • Make the list of things to carry beforehand so it is easy for packing at the last moment.
  • Fill your car tank a day prior so that no last moment delays are caused if traveling by car. You cant predict strikes beforehand.
  • Keep all your car documents including PUC ready in your car.
  • Check in through web if going by flight a day in advance.
  • Take prints of train/bus tickets though mobile tickets are valid.
  • Charge your mobile and power bank fully.
  • Keep slings/passport holder ready with basic documents and money.
  • Keep change and loose currency for toll or coffee.
  • Download songs, web series, movies to watch while on the way.
  • Carry headphones.
  • Carry sunglasses.
  • Jackets/umbrella depending on the weather.
  • Carry dustbin bags and old newspaper.
