You might not realize it, but your home is actually loaded with hiding places! If wanting to hide various items around the house as part of your bug-out plan, review the following super -cool and innovative spots for keeping stuff hidden.:
Maintain one or a few fake plants around the house and bury money or other essential items at the bottom of the “soil.”
Top Of Doors
Drill holes in the top of interior doors and use them to hide cash, jewelry, or anything else that’s small and valuable. Simply make the hole and insert a metal tube to keep the stuff in place.
Hide important documents between the picture and the cardboard backing in a picture frame. Secret storage areas behind pictures on the wall is a classic trick; however, few think to look in the frame itself.
Glue a rock to the top of an aspirin bottle to make your own Hide-A-Key. Bury the bottle, but (obviously) keep the rock exposed. Use it for keys or other small items you’d rather keep outside of the house.
Disguise important items as food by wrapping them in aluminum foil and placing them in your freezer.
Purchase one or more wall clocks that feature hidden storage components. They’re great for cash, jewelry, and other small but very valuable items.
Buy faux paint cans (find them on the internet — it’s not hard) and use them to store all kinds of things. Situate them among real paint cans to throw burglars off the scent. Flowerpot safes are another option.
