We were talking with a friend the other day when she mentioned that her boyfriend never got the gas turned on in his apartment. He's the essential bachelor (only using the microwave to cook at home). Which then reminded us of our college years and using random storage spots to tidy up before guests came over. We can remember using the oven to hide items before guests arrived (in our case this usually meant dirty dishes). While it wasn't the best of ideas, we (like our bachelor friend) rarely cooked in those days so the hiding spot seemed like a good solution. And we know we're not alone (a previous client of ours used the oven to store her medicine in a ziplock bag). If we really think about it, the dishwasher, oven and microwave are probably the last places an intruder would look to find your precious items. Not that we're about to start using these wacky hiding places to stash stuff. But we're curious--what wacky hiding places have you used to quickly hide items at home?
