Try a DIY Twist on the Under-the-Doormat Trick

It’s always a good idea to stash a spare key somewhere on your property. That way, when you accidentally get locked out of your house, you’ll be relieved that you don’t have to break (and then climb through) a window to get in. But don’t fall for the most obvious spots—like under the doormat or a potted plant—as those are the first places a burglar will think to look. Get creative with one of these easy DIY ideas and you’ll have a smart hiding spot no one will be able to guess.
