Spend a few extra minutes before you leave town to secure your home. Below you will find a few additional tips that may give your home a lived in look while you are away. Your vacation should be an opportunity to relax and enjoy some time off. Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend.

* ASK A NEIGHBOR TO CHECK ON YOUR HOUSE AND GET YOUR MAIL OR ARRANGE FOR HOUSE SITTER. BE SURE TO LEAVE A PHONE NUMBER WITH SOMEONE OF WHERE YOU CAN BE REACHED ON VACATION.

* HAVE SOMEONE MOW YOUR LAWN.

* STOP NEWSPAPER DELIVERY OR HAVE SOMEONE GET THE PAPER.

* NOTIFY THE POLICE IF YOU PLAN TO BE AWAY FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME.
