Get Rid of Boxes

This is very simple and a great way to deter burglars without spending any money. It’s just a great habit to develop and encourage the rest of the family to do as well.

If you purchase something expensive like a TV or computer, it is likely to be delivered in a large box with the brand and photo of the item shown on the box. A burglar who spots this in the garage or front yard will know you have something worth thieving in the house. 

For this reason, either throw the boxes into public garbage or break them down so they won’t show the brand and photo any more.
