We all have things we’d like to keep from the prying eyes (and hands) of others. Do you have a firearm in your home that you’d like to keep hidden from your kids? A small stash of cash, expensive jewelry, and other valuables can be hidden from guests, children, and burglars if it is strategically placed. Check out this super creative post by the Family Handyman blog for hiding places in your home that no one would ever think to check!
-Hollowed out books
-Right out in the open- stash your stuff in any item that has a cavity- an old vacuum cleaner, printer, computer tower, etc.
-Stick your cash in a pill bottle or other watertight container and bury it in the soil of a potted plant.
-Stash valuables in your kids room- burglars never check childrens’ rooms for valuables, but make sure you put it where your kids can’t find it either. Obviously, never store guns or weapons in a child’s room.
-Stash money in an old mayonnaise jar, coke can, paint can- anything that no one would bother checking.
If you are storing guns, make sure they are NOT loaded, and that bullets are stored elsewhere, but are still accessible to ONLY you in case of an emergency.
