Holiday reminders

Thanksgiving is coming up and hopefully you have already taken precautions prior to leaving. But should you leave town you’ll want to make your house look sort of occupied.
You can contact the US Post Office and ask them to hold your mail. There is a 3 day minimum and 30 day maximum.

Nothing says we’re not home like 3 yellowing Washington Posts on your front stoop. You can contact the Post or the Times and have them not deliver for the days you are gone.

Just in case the UPS guy stops by or your mailbox gets stuffed with fliers and Chinese takeout menus, you may want to have neighbors take a quick look at your place and remove the offending items.

Any other pointers?
