Popcorn Kernel Jar Secret Safe - cash inside the inner water bottleNeed a place to hide your valuables? Try making my secret diversion safe that looks like a full jar of popcorn kernels! It costs about $1.00 to make, which is so much cheaper than diversion safes carried at spy and detective shops. Don't have popcorn? You can use whatever filling that won't look too enticing: lentils, beans, bran flakes, etc. The possibilities are endless.

I love fooling people. I have this I made and keep dimes in it. I have also used Pringles cans, altoid tins, and many other things as a "safe" safe!!
