Many people have certain places where they hide the stuff they feel has the most value--whether that's monetarily or has personal information or sentimental value.

You know, those certain hiding places where they stash stuff they want to keep safe from would-be house burglars who may invade their Texas homes.

But are they actually safe, people in Longview and Tyler, Texas you may wonder? I know I do.

Not according to the security experts quoted in a recent article by author Marissa Laliberte shared by Readers' Digest.

Unfortunately, some burglars may check online to research places people think offer added security for their valuables, so they know where to look. After all, the internet is available to most people.

Texas homeowners have different opinions on the safest spots in their homes when protecting their property should a house burglar get access to their residence. You probably have certain places that come to mind, as do I.

But that's the world we live in and we need to do our best to keep our homes, and more importantly our families, safe.
