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!
