Check the expiration dates on your passport and driver’s license.
Do you know what your medical coverage is? This is especially helpful if traveling to a foreign country.
Have you called your credit card companies and your bank?
Is someone picking up your mail and paper or do you need to stop the delivery?
Clean out your refrigerator.
Check your thermostat.
Unplug any unnecessary devices.
Check the weather at your destination.
Make sure all windows and doors are locked and your alarm is set.
