A good hider is creative. Look around your room for creative hiding places. Innocent looking things are usually best. Note that sock drawers, back of wardrobes, shoe boxes are quite obvious to someone who is looking. Perhaps try looking in someone else’s room for stuff and think about where you look.
There are all kinds of places around your house to hide things. Just think about all the obvious places people hide things like under the mattress and such and don’t hide them there. Think of creative places that nobody would think of. Hope this gives some people some ideas.
