11 Things to Never Keep in Your Home, as Thefts Rise

Avoid keeping large sums of cash at home, as it can attract unwanted attention and increase the risk of theft.

Large Amounts of Cash

 High-value jewelry should be stored in a secure location, such as a safe deposit box at a bank, rather than in your home.

Valuable Jewelry

Important documents like passports, birth certificates, property deeds, and wills should be kept in a secure place or in a fireproof safe.

Irreplaceable Documents

If you own firearms, it's essential to store them securely in a locked gun safe or cabinet, separate from ammunition.

Firearms and Ammunition

Items like high-end laptops, tablets, smartphones, and gaming consoles are attractive targets for thieves. Store them securely and out of sight when not in use.

Expensive Electronics

Keep prescription medications in a locked cabinet or drawer, as they can be a target for theft and may be misused if accessed by unauthorized individuals.

Prescription Medications

Don't keep spare keys hidden in obvious places such as under doormats, flower pots, or fake rocks. Instead, give spare keys to trusted individuals or consider investing in a secure lockbox.
