Criminals primarily search bedrooms and kitchens

According to statistics, the most commonly used hiding spots for money at home include spaces under furniture, behind walls, books, mattresses, pillows, or decorative items. However, experienced burglars are familiar with these classic hiding spots for currency and valuables.

To enhance security, it's advisable to avoid overly obvious hiding places and opt for more unique and original locations. Sante Plus has shared some suggestions:

Where to hide money

It's important to remember that thieves are familiar with many common hiding spots, so it's advisable to choose a hard-to-reach place.

Even the most clever hiding spots are not foolproof. If you have a large sum of money that you want to keep safe, it's better to choose a more secure solution: a safe or a bank account.

Insurance experts have provided some tips. You can bury money in a large flowerpot under a plant or hide banknotes behind a framed photo. However, these hiding ideas are not entirely secure, so it's important to remain vigilant.

Common areas where thieves search for money and jewelry

Most criminals start their search in the bedroom. Then, they head to the kitchen. They may even thoroughly search your pantry for cash or other valuables.

Thieves will primarily check:

  • storage jars (such as coffee, cookie, or tea jars)
  • books on the shelf
  • freezer
  • bathroom
  • empty cardboard boxes
  • pillows
  • cabinets
  • lamps
  • mattresses
  • various kitchen containers
  • jewelry box
  • toilet bowl
  • cavities in the walls and under the floor.

Where to put cash safely

For storing valuables or cash at home, experts recommend investing in a safe for enhanced protection. Additionally, ensuring good burglary protection, such as burglar-proof windows and doors, a reliable door lock and latch, and an alarm system, is crucial.
