5 Creative Hiding Places for Valuables at Home
Presented by http://bullnetsystems.com
An average burglary takes an estimate of 8 to 12 minutes to happen. If you are hiding money or jewelry, you can invest on a safe and pray that your thief is ignorant with modern techniques of opening these hiding places.
Since small valuables such as gadgets are the usual favorites of a break in, you can be creative – and, of course, spend little to no money – with your choice of precaution. Aside from a safe, there are DIY burglar alarm systems and some unusual spots in your home to keep your valuables from being taken away.
1. In the fridge wrapped in aluminum foil or under a lettuce
The 12 minutes may already be up before a thief would turn his or her eyes on your day-old and preserved food in the fridge. Or inside a lettuce just sitting comfortably in the chiller.
2. Inside your Christmas decoration box
Christmas may still be months to come, but Santa can still be your friend as you hide a stack of money or other valuable in your collection of Holiday figurines and fake poinsettia.
Place some money in an envelope and turn it into a bookmark. Or you can purchase some hollow book safes from specialty shops. Or sacrifice a good `ol book (hopefully, this does not include your dog-eared Harry Potter book) which won’t interest anyone.
4. Buried under a fake plant
If you are a plant-lover and has been decorating your homes with greens, then it would take quite a long time for your average burglar to take out all your plants out of their pots. And think of the horror the sound of breaking vases can make.
5. Under your cat’s litter box
You might be thinking twice about this one. But yes, your burglar might think five times more before approaching this.
For break-ins, install GSM burglar alarms in your home so you’ll know right away and you can come to check up on your lost valuables. Or laugh at how easily you’ve deceived a thief.
