Hiding our valuables is embedded into our nature - from caveman hiding a bone in an old pterodactyl's nest to you, searching for places to hide things in your room. Fear not for your possessions, because Bored Panda, has declassified a top-secret list that will teach you how to turn everyday household items into secret hiding places.

From covering your sweets in plain sight to super secret drawers, compartments, crawl spaces, and even a hornets' nest imitation hiding spot - these tricks would fool even 007 himself.

So, do you hate people touching your stuff? Paranoid that burglars are stalking your home? Worried about that stash of questionable material on the dark red flash drive that sits haphazardly in your nightstand drawer? Whatever your reasons are for wanting to keep something completely camouflaged, we've got you covered. Your secrets, together with your valuables will stay safe.

Get the ideas about best hiding spots in our list below!

I wonder whether it can be opened manually, I wouldn't want to be trapped during a power outage. Super smooth though, I wonder whether that picture frame on the shelves is glued into place?

This would be a great gift for a college grad. A lovely photo album of their past years and what it took to get where they are and then when they call to ask for money because starting out is tough, tell them to look under the photos.

I think thieves might take a whole computer if there's time, also shouldn't the secret compartment blend better?

Ok, so coming from a bad part of St. Louis, I know this a BAD IDEA. Half of the people I knew there had gotten their car stolen at least once, and if you did this and got your car stolen, you're out of luck.

Again tactical decision. Thieves usually come from fairly close by. And similar social status. ... If you have bigger items than can be stolen easily those will go first. If it is desperate druggies in low income area they might try to take the vinyls to sell later....but in the right place i like this.
