There’s no worse feeling than arriving home to discover thieves have been shopping at your house. Make things harder for them by trying these tips:
• After purchasing big-ticket items for yourself or others, break packaging into smaller pieces and in separate bags. Wait to put those out on pick-up day.
• Shred paperwork or mail with personal details like name, social security number or birthdate to keep out of the wrong hands.
• Keep a spare key outside? Get creative when it comes to that “secret” spot. Skip under the flower pot and try the third bush from the right.
