1 The cash can: placing your valuables in a special tin designed to look and weigh exactly as much as a tin of beans or peas.

2 'Ice' in the freezer: the frozen food compartment is a favourite for stashing diamonds and precious gems (until you realise you've thrown them in the compost).

3 The big cash plug: false electric sockets, but burglars check all sockets.

4 The dummy safe: yes lots of people have a real safe with two hundred euros in it to open for burglars "under duress" while the "real" one is elsewhere. Again they know.

5 The secret screen: loads of people either sew cash into curtains or stash it in the light fittings.

6 Green in the garden: why burglars are energetically sweeping upmarket gardens with metal detectors at night.
