Hiding our valuables is embedded into our nature - from caveman hiding a bone in an old pterodactyl's nest to you, searching for places to hide things in your room. Fear not for your possessions, because Bored Panda, has declassified a top-secret list that will teach you how to turn everyday household items into secret hiding places.
So, do you hate people touching your stuff? Paranoid that burglars are stalking your home? Worried about that stash of questionable material on the dark red flash drive that sits haphazardly in your nightstand drawer? Whatever your reasons are for wanting to keep something completely camouflaged, we've got you covered. Your secrets, together with your valuables will stay safe.
A fully featured home security system (and homeowner's insurance) is your best defense against burglars in your home. But even the best home security system may not stop a determined thief. If a burglar makes it into your home, they'll be on a mad dash for valuables -- and it's in your best interest to make it as hard as possible for them to take off with your stuff.
Burglars want to make it in and out of your home within minutes. They need to find the valuables they're looking for and get out before a neighbor notices them or the authorities arrive. The fact is that burglars just aren't going to go through every nook and cranny of your home to discover every hiding spot. They'll hit the most obvious places, including your living room and bedroom, and split as soon as they've found what they're looking for.
We've highlighted 13 of the best places to hide valuables in your home. These spots aren't easily found by burglars, or they're simply too much work for a thief who only has minutes to find what they want. The goal is to make finding your valuables so tedious that burglars simply give up without finding anything you truly value.
Spread your valuables around these spots (don't forget where you've left them) and rest easy knowing burglars aren't likely to go to the trouble of finding them. Want to add extra assurance? Consider adding fake stashes for burglars to find and move on: we've included suggestions for fake stash spots as well.
A friend of mine was recently burglarized. Their place was completely ransacked in the process and several valuables were stolen. Fortunately, a few of the most precious items were left unscathed because they were hidden away in a small storage safe disguised as a book, hidden in a pile of other hardbound copies. Whether you want to protect your things or you just like having a bit of mystery in your home, these are the best items you can DIY or buy to keep your treasures hidden.
With the average burglar taking just 8 to 12 minutes inside a home or apartment, hiding away valuables in unexpected spots around the house can make the difference between losing something and losing everything of personal value.
Remember, one of the first rooms burglars will likely scour is the master bedroom, because it is generally where jewelry, cash and safes are located. Other areas such as the living room and home office will be targeted next, for easy to carry home electronics. That leaves bathrooms, the kitchen, hallways, mudrooms, and the laundry room better spots for safekeeping duties.
