Best Hiding Places

What are some of your favorite places for hiding things? Lady across the street always hides the phone bill in her freezer and her husband has yet to discover them there.

The trunk of the car.

When I had my 400E, stuff would always magically disappear. Open the trunk, and its rediscovered.

my first reaction was that i never hide things.

but then i remembered leaving a car or two at my indies that i had bought and not discussed with mrs. w.

my devious plan was to sell them before i had to take them home.

which i did.

How about for a hide-a-key on your MB. I couldn't find anywhere that was well enough hidden to suit me. I ended up sticking it behind the passenger headlight in the engine compartment. If I ever need it, I'll have to work hard to get it, but I can do it.

Sometimes, it seems, right in front of my face.

In plain sight. That's usually the most effective place to hide things.

My VW...it's been sitting for years so everyone in the family ignores it. Best place to stash Xmas presents, for the same reason...

The best place to hide something is....SMACK OUT IN THE OPEN.
