StoveMany of us have been there before: You’re rushing around trying to get everything packed for your trip and you just barely make it out the door with enough time to get to the airport. You’re in such a rush that you don’t have a chance to do a last-minute check on the house. So when you finally sit down at your gate and have a few minutes to think clearly, you start to wonder if you turned the stove off. And the coffee pot? What about the iron? If this happens to you, here’s a tip: Either get smart plugs that you can remotely turn off (I use a ) or get into the habit of taking a quick picture of your stove dials or the power buttons on the coffee pot or iron so you can refer back to it later and reassure yourself that everything is unplugged or turned off.
