The thing that bugs us about safes is the message they send. Basically, a safe that’s in your home, securely bolted down, sends a very strong signal. It’s says:

  • I have something valuable within.
  • Most anything of value within the home will probably be located within.
  • My owner is smart enough to know that what’s within is probably something others might want.

What does any of this talk about safes have to do with caching in the home? Simple – If you are putting everything of value that you own within a safe, you really are putting all your eg gs in one basket. To take this argument one step further, if your home is broken into, raided, or seized, and you are found to have a safe of some sort – guess what people are going to want to search? Basically, the safe is a big target. While it does serve a purpose, and you should have one, you should consider caching some of your items.

Caching Inside the Home


The answer to that is really simple – you want to cache items that you don’t want people to find. To be more specific, you might want to cache:

  • Cash
  • Bullion to include gold, silver, platinum, etc.
  • Ammunition
  • Firearms
  • Canned foods
  • Communications devices
  • Anything of readily portable value (jewelry, numismatic coins, etc.)

If you are using a safe of some sort to store any of the above items, we are not suggesting you change that. What we are suggesting is that perhaps you should consider caching a portion of the above items somewhere else in the home, hidden, just in case the main stash gets stolen or seized.
