• “I find it helpful to set calendar reminders on my phone for working out and meal prepping. I have to treat it like a job so that I’ll do it. Thought that might help other people who struggle.” — S.O. in Wyoming
• “ Those hide- a- key rocks can be a little obvious — at least they are to me. I have a spare key hidden outside too, but I sealed mine in a plastic baggie and buried it in a spot known only to our family members. Also, it’s not right by the door.” — I.E. in Mississippi
• “When closing up our cabin for the season, we brought a box of mothballs and scattered them around the porch perimeter. This keeps the small animals like mice and skunks from setting up shop there while no one is around.” — S.F. in Pennsylvania
• Now’s a great time to start weatherstripping! Check and recaulk windows. Caulk along baseboards to deter drafts. Add insulation to electrical outlets and under sinks around plumbing. Seal it up to stay toasty this winter.
