I was listening to WTOP yesterday (like a nerd, yes) when I caught the tail end of a news blip on clever money safes. I didn’t hear much of it, but what I DID catch was absolutely fantastic. So like any good financial blogger I headed to the ‘net to research more Wink

You thought those fake books safes or beer cans were cool? They’ve got nothin’ on these guys… I present to you ladies and gentlemen, the Top 10 Awesomest Safes I’ve Ever Seen! (feel free to bookmark for my birthday):


My personal faves are...

The Iceberg Lettuce Safe
Surge Protector Safe
The Dirty Underwear “Brief Safe”

    Like the lettuce one too. Keep your green in something green and keep it in the fridge as "cold hard cash." Mr Green

    I like a lot of those but I don't think the surge protector is all too great. You would think that a burglar is likely to steal electronics and if he were to find this when he was unplugging things, wouldn't the stuff inside rattle? He could possibly not think anything of it or he could just take it in case it is something valuable.

      Very good point mooncow; and I thought that one was a good idea at first.

    Yep, these are cool alright. Before such things were available to buy, we used to put cash in a small container, bury that in a larger glass jar of dried beans, and just stick it in the pantry with all the other canned goods. It just looked like a jar of beans and most thieves wouldn't even look there.

      Same with the bread, when I saw it I thought well what if he wanted some bread on the way out?

    I thought I'd bump this topic up and add what I found today. Of course there are "diversion safes" offered for sale, but with a little creativity, you can look around the house and come up with some free or inexpensive alternatives to secure important documents, jewelry, or cash. Suddenly broken appliances or old VHS tapes have new appeal.

    Some of these may overlap the original list, but there are a few new ones.
