When you’re on vacation, don’t post your plans on social media. The travel group AAA says that’s an invitation for thieves to help themselves to your propery back home. Tammy Arnette of AAA says you should just log off all social media contacts when you’re on vacation. Before you leave, give your house that “lived in” look by having timers turn on lights and parking a car in your driveway. The good news is getting to your vacation destination will be a little cheaper as the cost of crude oil is down somewhat.
