If you've gone to the trouble of hiring a house sitter while you're away for the holidays, be sure to instruct that person properly.

Give the sitter a checklist and go over it with him or her before you go away. Also take the time to show the sitter where everything is located and how all your appliances, utilities, and other relevant items operate.

You'll enjoy your holiday all the more knowing your home is being looked after properly.
