There is very little gold, diamonds and Renoir originals in the world.
However, there are a lot of people. This dissonance leads to the need to securely hide valuable things, reports Ukr.Media.
According to sociologists, about 40% of our compatriots prefer to keep money at home. The tradition of not trusting money to banking institutions dates back many years, and is widely covered in popular works of domestic culture.
If you remember, Nikanor Ivanovych Bosiy, the head of the housing society of the house at 302 bis on Sadova Street, hid the money received from the joker Korovev in the ventilation.
The mother-in-law of Ippolit Matviyovych Vorobyaninov hid the family jewels of the beloved novel “12 Chairs” under the upholstery of the chairs by Master Gumbs. Ilfa and Petrova.
The heroes of these works were ultimately unable to save their treasures. Is it possible to hide money safely, so that no one will find it? The most sophisticated and reliable hiding places, as well as places where money should not be hidden under any circumstances, — all this is in our article.
Where not to hide money
Most often, savings are hidden in such popular places as closets, wardrobes, chests of drawers, mattresses, naively believing that it is very difficult for thieves to find savings in endless piles of bed linen. Do not doubt, professional robbers will spend no more than 10-15 minutes on this.
The second most popular place not to keep money is — these are books. How quickly your savings will be found often depends on the number of books in the apartment. If it is a dozen books of favorite writers and poets standing alone on a shelf, the probability of finding a stash is close to 100%. An experienced burglar can overturn an entire bookshelf in a few minutes.
Ventilation and drain tank
Uninvited guests will climb into the ventilation for a stash immediately after your cabinets and library are turned over. If the attackers do not find the treasured envelope there, be sure that the next place where they will look for your hard-earned money will be the drain tank — the place where valuables are stored is known even to amateurs.

But this is a great idea if we are talking about a small wad of money. Just make a small hole in the ball. The incision should be large enough to easily insert the pack and just as easily to remove it. Then put the ball back in the container with the other tennis balls.
In the birdhouse
A birdhouse with a double bottom, inside which you can safely hide spare house keys — a great idea for summer residents. Such a hiding place will perfectly fit into the country landscape, without attracting too much attention, and can come in handy in an emergency.
In the coffee table
A small coffee table with a roomy drawer for storing various valuables. It is worth noting that the box has no handles, opens by pressing the side board of the frame and does not attract attention at all.
On the windowsill
Enough space a hiding place, you can hide anything you want in it!
In the outlet
It is most logical to hide valuables where you yourself are afraid to put your hands for fear of death or injury. Turn off the electricity to the apartment and remove the plastic cover from the outlet. A hole in the wall with threatening wires will surely appear under it. It is quite possible to hide something among them. Just keep in mind that the objects you hide in the outlet must not conduct current!

An old idea hiding jewels in chairs is still more alive than all the living. Yes, this is not a chair from the palace, but after a little modification, it will serve as an excellent hiding place.
In the gear lever
Recently, the number of car thefts has increased significantly. A gear lever with a small hiding place will help protect small valuables from car thieves.
In a jar of detergent
If you want to hide money under the sink, use an ordinary empty detergent can. However, you should not forget that, in addition to this jar, there should be another one with detergent that you will need in case of cleaning.
In wall clocks
Hide money in wall clocks — this is a great idea. You need frequent and convenient access to money — use an ordinary wall clock as a safe.
If you hang the clock high, you may need a ladder to get money from such a safe. This means that even an uninvited guest will need a lot of effort to get to the money.
To hide a stash from your significant other or to protect yourself from street thieves, a hiding place equipped under the insole of shoes will help.

In an ordinary globe, you can hide valuables for the time of departure or equip a stash. And so that the hiding place does not attract attention in any way, valuables should be put in a small bag and carefully glued to the wall of the ball with tape.
