  How To Safeguard Your Valuables  


The Fourth Layer:  How To
Safeguard Your Valuables

1. Safety Deposit Box. A safety deposit box at a bank is the safest place to hide valuables.  At home, you'll want a hiding place that would force a burglar to use his intelligence and expend his precious time to get to it.
2. Home Hiding Places. Many burglars are very thorough, even looking in the toilet tank for hidden jewelry! The more difficult your hiding place is for you to get to, the safer it is from any burglar.  The attic or kitchen are usually the places burglars look last.  Also, guard keys very well to prevent criminals from ever getting them.
3. Keep Records. Keep records of your valuables for insurance purposes, including receipts. A videotape tour of your home is easy to do (taking still photos is also acceptable). Then when you buy a new item of high value, just add it to the same videotape. The best practice is to make a copy and keep it in a safe deposit box, in case of fire.



     
  
Thought for the Day:  "In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing.  The worst thing you can do is nothing."

~ Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919), American President
