Automate your Home Maintenance To Dos in 2007

Ah the holidays, a time relax and reflect.  On Boxing Day, I was so relaxed it dawned on me that I had not shut off the water valve to the tap outside.  I was stunned.  Visions of frozen pipes and blow dryers danced before my eyes!

Now how did that happen?  I think it’s the speed at which we live our lives.  There’s always more to do, more to remember, and not enough time.  So what to do?  Well, I found some pretty nifty home maintenance planning tools at ServiceMagic.com to help you manage your home throughout the year.  I hear you.  “Who wants another To Do list?  I’m not going to remember to check the site etc.”

Ah well – that’s the beauty of it, you don’t have to go check the website or remember much of anything.  This is (almost) 2007 and you can sign up for an rss feed to the calendar.   So significant Home Maintenance To Dos and reminders get sent to your news reader or browser desktop “just in time” – automatically.  Service Magic’s, Calendar of Home Improvement To-Do’s

Check it out.  Not all the tips are going to apply to everyone (and some sound like thinly veiled attempts to generate leads for ServiceMagic) but even so, it’s still a valuable service that will help keep your home renovation & maintenance efforts top of mind throughout the year.
