Close Your Blinds
I love looking in your windows. I’m looking for signs that you’re home, and for flat screen TVs or gaming systems I’d like. I’ll drive or walk through your neighborhood at night, before you close the blinds, just to pick my targets. Hopefully you have a friendly neighbor but beware of the things they aren’t telling you.
Don’t Give Updates on Social Media
Avoid announcing your vacation on your Facebook page. It’s easier than you think to look up your address.
Close Your Windows When You’re Not Home
Lock your windows. To you, leaving that window open just a crack during the day is a way to let in a little fresh air. To me, it’s an invitation. Close your blinds while you’re at it because you’ll save a bundle on cooling costs.
