Vacation Prep

I recently went away for the weekend and when I came back I saw this post about having to clean your house before you go on vacation. I thought I was the only person who felt the need to clean my house before I leave for any length of time. Some of the housecleaning that I do includes:

  • Changing the sheets on the bed
  • Doing ALL the laundry
  • Vacuuming
  • Cleaning the kitchen (including putting away all dishes)
  • Clearing off my desk
  • Balancing my checkbook
  • Taking out all the garbage
  • Straightening up the living room

Leaving for vacation necessitates a good two to four hours of housecleaning the night before, often forcing me to stay up late so that things are ‘just so’ before I leave. I know it causes me stress to put these requirements on myself, but it really makes me less stressed out knowing that I can come home to a clean home and not have to worry about cleaning when I’m already tired from the vacation (if you’re not tired when you get home from vacation, then it wasn’t really a vacation in my opinion).

To make matters worse, I have a second requirement that I must do before leaving on vacation: clean the car (washed, vacuumed, and gassed up). Dave says that I should clean the car when I get home as it will just get dirty on vacation. I say that I don’t want to drive as much as you drive on a vacation in a dirty car.

What things must you do before you leave on vacation?
