Other than your guns, here are five things that you could keep in your safe, including some you might be aware of.
Storing your jewelry in a dresser drawer, jewelry box or jewelry armoire won't provide much protection for your jewelry. Any of these items can be broken into or carried out of your home to be accessed off-site. Whether you have an expensive diamond bracelet or a piece of jewelry that has sentimental value and has been passed down through your family, a home safe is hands down the most secure storage option.
If you're a wine connoisseur and do not have a wine cellar or want to secure an expensive vintage wine that you have purchased, your home's safe is a great place to store it. A safe offers the ideal storage place for wine because it offers a cool and dark environment.
Today, many of us keep digital copies of our photographs stored in the “cloud.” But what about the photos you have before the age of digital photography? Old family photos, your kids’ school photos, or birth photos are irreplaceable. They can be kept safe from harm, including moisture and fire when you keep them in your home safe.
It’s always a good idea to keep a little cash on hand, just in case of an emergency. If you live in an area that is prone to severe weather, ATMs might not work if electricity is knocked out for days. A home safe is more secure than hiding money in your sock drawer or under your mattress.
5. Sentimental Items
There are items that you might have that don't have a monetary value. It could be your child’s first pair of baby shoes, baby teeth, or the first Christmas ornament that your child made for you at school. All these items have sentimental value and are priceless. Keeping your sentimental items secured in a safe will help you preserve your memories and prevent heartache in the event of fire or damage to your home.
This is only a sample of what you could keep in your home safe other than your gun. Get peace of mind by securing your treasures in a safe.
