This is the season to go on vacation, and visit family and friends. It can be expensive, but would be even more expensive if I didn’t plan and leave my home in a vacation state. Here are a few ways I save money at home, even when I’m gone.
Insurance ensures that if my home is broken into I can be reimbursed for what is stolen. Renters insurance is actually very affordable for those of us that are apartment dwellers. Even if I were to come home to a break in, I would be able to replace what was stolen.
Before leaving I make a check list of all I need to do before we leave home. I list each item I need to unplug or turn off. This includes stoves, computers, and house lights. With pets I also make a check list of who is watching them, if I have left enough food, and if I have removed household hazzards, like not leaving the toilet seat up. 😉

I like to save money during trips by using up foods that would go bad by the time we get home. I check expiration dates and plan meals according to what I need to use up.
What do you do to save money and prepare for travel?
