PREPARE FOR A ROAD TRIP A summer road trip can be a spontaneous weekend adventure or a meticulously planned out affair. Even if the trip is spontaneous, it doesn't hurt to make sure your vehicle is in top shape and fully stocked before you hit the open road. Here are a handful of things to check: • All of the fluids topped up (washer fluid, AC coolant, etc.) • The filters are cleaned or changed • Air pressure in the tires • Your windshield wipers aren’t cracked or worn • Insurance and registration are current (and you know how to get a hold of your insurance company should something go wrong) • Your headlights, indicators and other lights are working and any burned out bulbs are replaced • You have a fully stocked first-aid kit • You have the elements of (or a pre-purchased) roadside emergency kit Once your vehicle is ready to travel long distances, you can hit the road whenever the mood strikes.

GARAGE SALE TIPS Garage sale season is coming up and now is a great time to go through your home and select pieces you can sell at a garage (or yard) sale later this summer. As you go through the items in your home, group them by type. For instance, kitchen goods, decor items, clothes, books, games, toys, outdoor items, etc. as it will make pricing and displaying them much easier. Make sure the items you're selling are clean and in good repair. When pricing items, remember, the goal is to create space in your home by selling unwanted or unused items not to gain a profit. If you're unsure how to price a larger item, check your local buy and sell groups online to see what similar items are listed for. Remember curiosity draws people in, so place your big-ticket items in such a way that buyers have to walk through all the other items to get to what drew them in. At the end of the sale, items that didn’t sell can be donated to a local charity or thrift store or listed on an online sale site if you so choose.
