RACHEL’S TEAM PICK:
Have you ever wanted to do that thing where you carve out the inside of a book to use as a secret hiding place? Have you ever tried carving out the inside of a book with maybe a dull boxcutter and then gotten yelled at for it by your mom? Are you not sorry? There is a book for you.
It’s called The Construction of Secret Hiding Places, it’s a free PDF download, and it is more legit than you could ever imagine. Even the troublemaking eleven-year-old you probably didn’t think of using empty (and turned off!) electrical sockets, false drawer bottoms, and hiding stuff INSIDE DOORS. I KNOW RIGHT. Your girlfriend will never find her Christmas presents early again! Or, alternatively, you could hide a huge stash of lollipops and never run out again! Or maybe you have money or care about things other than presents, toys and candy — that’s cool, you’re allowed to hide that too. Whatever. Here’s a freebie! Maybe if you can figure out how to cut a tin can without buckling and disfiguring the metal (I can’t), then you can get started right now.
