Lets face it, keeping cash in your dresser drawers sucks. First, it boring and everybody does that. Second, it’s not a good way to keep valuables safe. Anyone that’s looking to steal your cash will go through the obvious first. Let’s go through 5 stealth stash spots you can make at home using simple stuff you probably already have. These stashes are great for small items like cash, jewelry and drugs (legal drugs).
Tooth Floss Container
Are you planning to take a trip and need to stash your cash in a small safe place? Pop the lid that contains the roll of floss open. This is a great place to stash away small items when you’re on a trip. The container is not easy to open and chances are it would be the last place a thief would check.
Box of Tissue
Need something with a little more stashing space. This is great stash spot for a trip or at home. You can make it on the fly with little to no prep work. Carefully open a box of tissue on the side. Empty out enough tissues to make the space you need. Use a stiff paper material like cardboard to divide up the area. You can use double sided tape to hold the box closed.
Kitchen cabinet Kicker
The kitchen is like a mecca of hidden places. From empty containers under your sink to a diversion can of beans. The problem with most of that is, thieves already know that trick and space is limited. How about an unusual stash spot with almost unlimited space.
The counter kicker is the name of that empty space at the footer of your counter. It is just a piece of molding that can easily be removed to expose a huge hiding spot. You can stash everything from money to guns here no problem.
Under the Counter
Have some important documents you need to protect? This is the perfect place. Sicking your documents in a folder and stashing them under the kitchen counter is perfect. Once again, this is wasted space that is otherwise unused. Just remember, this is hard to get to so don’t plan on placing items you use frequently here.
You need to stash some seriously important stuff. False piping is works as a diversion stash that can be impossible to detect, if done right. Best method would be to run a false pipe along with other similar real piping. PVC is easy to work with and simple to put together. Screw caps make a perfect access point.
The PVC false piping idea should inspire you to looking to spaces usually reserved for utilities. Be creative and create your own secret hiding space in your home by using otherwise wasted space. The best spots for stashing larger items like guns, rifles and documents are usually right in front of you. They don’t need any elaborate set up, most of the time it’s as simple as moving a board.
