Lost an hour of sleep over weekend? Don’t worry you aren’t the only one. But did you know there are items other than setting your clocks forward on your checklist that you were supposed to do this past weekend?

Twice a year when you change your clocks you are supposed to check and change the batteries of your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms.
