Grass cutting -- cut just before I leave and then not worry. No watering a couple weeks before leaving.
Mail -- If 30 days or less have them hold the mail. This can be done via USPS web site. Over 30 days I do a temporary forwarding to my daughter. I have her send what ever she's collected to the closest town to General Delivery. We get very little of any importance in the mail.
Newspaper -- Stop all newspapers. Or like us we don't get any.
Routine Bills -- All our bills are auto draw except for two which had be handles via the internet.
The only hitch is USPS which doesn't always forward everything. Two months on magazines, if they think it junk mail the dispose of it and return anything that looks like credit cards. This can all be handled with a small bit of fuss and bother.
