I recently learned my lesson the hard way that having a home security system is no reason skimp on other home security measures. One day, my home was broken into and all of my valuable jewelry was stolen. I kept it in an unlocked dresser drawer, even though I rarely wore most of it. I wish I could say that the security system failed, as that would make me feel less guilty, but the truth is that I simply forgot to turn it on when I left the house that day. No one is perfect, and we all forget things. That is why I now keep all my valuables in a hidden, in a wall safe. I created this blog to share my experience and remind others that you can never have too much home security. Even if you have a home system, don't forget basic safes.
