File # 2019 - Christmas

I know it’s hard to believe, but Christmas is right around the corner! This means many of us are running around flustered as we try to think of that last gift or just trying to find the perfect gift. With so much on our minds, we easily forget the small things. And they are little, NOW. But later, they can be really BIG and frustrating.

The first thing to keep in mind is keeping your belongings safe. Theft from Auto continues to be a problem in the Langleys and we need to change our ways significantly. Gone are the days where you can leave little possessions in the car while you quickly run in to this or that store. You need to take EVERYTHING out of sight. No loose change, no mail, no sunglasses and especially no electronics. Leaving these items in plain view is an invitation to thieves. Let’s start a new trend! Leave NOTHING in sight in your car! You can do it!

Now, you have too many bags and decide to make a trip to the car to lighten your load. Think….

It’s getting darker earlier so park somewhere well lit.

The next thing to think of is protecting yourself against identity theft. You’re shopping, you have a bunch of bags, you’re too hot in the mall, and you’re realizing you forgot to get something way on the other side of the mall. Slow down, take a breath and remember….
You’re done, you made it! The shopping is over, now you wrap everything and put it under the tree, which looks absolutely lovely in the window of your home. Consider….
You’re staying local this Christmas and it has been wonderful. Everyone loved their gifts. Now, time to clean up. It might be an idea to….

OR…

You’ve decided to go away, good for you! Let’s protect our home while we’re away…
