Don’t rely on locked drawers
We’ll admit that this one sounds pretty strange, but please, bear with us. According to this former burglar, locked drawers are the best targets. This is because a lock indicates that there’s something valuable inside, and burglars will spend all their time trying to break their way into it.
Use this to your advantage. If you have a locked drawer, only keep small items you won’t miss inside of them. A burglar will spend more time than they’d like trying to break it open, so they might flee immediately after retrieving whatever’s inside. Put in fake jewelry or even a few bucks inside of the locked drawer to deter the burglar from continuing the hunt for valuables.
