This reminds me of a book that I read a while ago, it was called "How to Hide Anything". It shows all sorts of neat and safe places in appliances and furniture and such to hide valuable possesion, you should give it a read ^_^ you'd probably like it.

Thanks for the tip! I like new ideas to be sneaky and hide-y.
