As a car owner, there are several useful goals you can set for yourself and your vehicle. Check out these New Year’s resolutions for your car and do your best to start the next year off on the right foot.
Keep Up with Maintenance
Providing regular services and maintenance for your vehicle is the one sure way to keep it in great shape for a long time. Make it a goal this year to stay on top of oil changes, tire rotations and alignments, and check-ups. This goal will ensure that your car is safe to drive while helping you avoid potentially costly repairs.
Learn some DIY Maintenance
It can be very empowering to know how to take care of some simple maintenance on your car. Start with something simple, like installing new windshield wipers or a fresh air filter. If you feel confident, move on to a bigger project, like an oil change.
Nix the Distracted Driving
Every day, multiple people die from accidents that occurred because of distracted driving. Distracted driving takes a number of different forms. It could be texting or talking on the phone while driving, checking GPS, eating while driving, or applying makeup while behind the wheel. Make it a serious goal in the New Year to put an end to distracted driving and create safer conditions as a result.
The last few months of the year are hectic. From Halloween until New Year’s, it can seem like the holidays are nonstop. To help cut expenses, here are fun ways to decorate for Thanksgiving by using Halloween decor.
Sticking LED candles such as electronic tea lights around the house can give it an eerie vibe for October. In November, you can put the candles in displays with red, orange, and brown leaves or fall-colored ribbons. This will work as table centerpieces, as a decoration above the mantle, by windows, or anywhere you want to add an extra glow.
Pumpkins aren’t just for jack-o’-lantern carving. Uncarved pumpkins will last through November on your front porch. You can also go to grocery stores that stock pumpkins and buy any leftover after Halloween. If you’re still worried your pumpkins won’t last, you can spray them with WD-40 and keep them out of rain and direct sunlight to help them last longer.
Sometimes people like to use hay bales as part of Halloween decor. Hay bales can prop up skeletons or serve as a backdrop for spooky scarecrows. Then, when you put the Halloween decorations away, you can repurpose the hay bales to display some pumpkins and faux foliage.
