Change Bedsheets and Towels
Take Trash Can to Curb
Never miss your weekly trash pickup again!
Test Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Follow your alarms’ recommended testing frequency – most are once per month. Also vacuum for dust and spray for ants/spiders to prevent false alarms.
Change Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm Batteries
It’s easy to miss the low battery chirp if you’re out of the house often, so stick to the manufacturer’s recommendation to make sure the alarms have plenty of juice to wake up you and your household in an emergency.
Sharpen Kitchen Knives
Dull knives can make you press too hard and lose control. Save yourself a trip to the emergency department by sharpening your knives regularly. If you need a knife sharpener, they’re fairly inexpensive to get started, like this highly-rated sharpener on Amazon.com
Don’t forget floor boards and smoke alarms!
Shop for Groceries
