You’ve probably done this for the same reasons I have: you don’t want to be locked out, you don’t want someone to know about something, you don’t want to spend that last bit of cash, etc.
But here’s the brutal truth: most of the super-secret-totally-awesome hiding spots you have are terrible. People know about them. And if they don’t, they could easily stumble upon whatever it is you’re trying to hide.
So here are some new spots and fresh ways to hide your stuff:
1. THE DOORSTOP STASH
Stash your cash where it definitely won’t be found. Just remember you put it there! Want to do this to your door? You can learn the steps here.
2. HOLLOWED-OUT BOOKS ARE BETTER THAN YOU THINK.
This trick is perfect for the home with many books.
3. INVEST IN A SAFE DISGUISED AS SOMETHING ELSE.

4. OR, CHECK OUT THIS WALL SAFE.
It’s not like people are going to look behind the outlets for your valuables!
5. THE CABINET HIDEY-HOLE
The Family Handyman tells us that between nearly every pair of upper cabinets exists a half-inch gap for hiding all sorts of things. To ensure you don’t lose what you want to hide, attach the item to binder clips, as seen in the photo below.
