If a burglar comes to your home, the first thing they’re going for is that obvious safe in your closet.
Unless it happens to be a burglar that likes to read, your bookshelf will probably go overlooked in the scavenging. So why not hide money and other small valuables in a secret storage book?
You can find a wide variety of book titles to use for your secret stash at Secretstoragebooks.com.
I recommend using a dry, boring book. If you pick something that actually looks interesting your guests may pick it up to read the back and stumble upon your rainy day dollars, Christmas fund or whatever you decide to put in there.
