    Thinking of buying a small safe for birth cert etc

    Want to start buying small stacks of silver to keep in there too. More for a fun investment than a retirement thing

    I keep all my important documents and most valuables in a safety deposit box at the bank. Ive heard a few stories of people getting jacked by people who knew they had a safe (or gun safe) in their homes.

    Silver is an interesting investment though. .i looked into it a few years ago but never pulled the trigger....anyone here own bitcoins or dogecoins?

    Shit a brick last night, too bad was not gold though.

    Re: safes, plenty of people get robbed for letting others see/know what they have. If you get a safe, stash it away if you can and don't tell people. You can get them in all sizes, can easily get one that stashes in a closet, under a bed, etc., fireproof/waterproof too. Not just for shit of monetary value either, any important docs you have that you don't want lost/damaged can go in there too.

    I keep all my riches in Chuck E Cheese tokens

    Well yeah wouldn't show any one. Just like I don't have a gun safe but don't make a habit of flaunting what I have.

    The worry would be a random b&e and the fucker scores.

    That's the cause of my unease with a small home safe.. You can just pick it up and walk out.

    Maybe safe deposit box is better

    Downside is annual fees

    Annual fees sucks but worth it in the long run.

    See if there are any ways to get the fees waived. ..for example, if you've been a bank customer for 20+ years, they might have a reduced fee or will waive it all together.

    Beyond not telling anyone you have a safe you don't have to leave it out in the open. I've seen the fireproof/waterproof ones at around 6"H x 12"W x 12"L at around $50, quite concealable or make your own concealment for it in a wall, rafters, etc. Your average B&E is not combing your home for shit like that, just grabbing some electronics or big ticket items in view and getting out.

    And don't put it where people put safes. Bedroom/office closets, under the bed, etc are cliched and predictable in that regard.

    How many burglars check your pantry for snacks? Conceal it in an obscure place. Have a box that slides over it marked "bedding" or "gramma's books" or some such nonsense.

    I've had my car broken into a few times, my house once. My dad's shop was robbed blind (a lifetime collection of tools). I've also been friends with a couple "professional" thieves over the years that instilled some sense in me.

    Proactive/paranoid.

    Your gramma's books comment reminded me of book safes.
