Put your car keys beside your bed at night.


Your car alarm is a security alarm system that you probably already have. It will go off when set off from almost everywhere inside your home.


If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to break in your house, press the panic button for your car. After a few seconds, all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there. Most likely, the intruder won't stick around.


(Also remember to carry your keys in your hand while walking in a parking lot so you won't have to fumble for them when you get to your car.)

I just put a hook on my bedside table for my keys. Now if I can only remember to hang them there instead of by the front door where I've been hanging them for years -- and will remember where they are when I go to the door looking for them! Ah, the joys of early senility.

I remember reading this somewhere a bit back. I put the second set in the nightstand.

I leave my keys in my pants pocket at night. That way I don't have to look for them when I get up in the morning.

If I hear someone breaking in

The funeral home is getting ready to have some business, because there is a 38 special Smith and Wesson Detective special close at hand and I'm a pretty good shot,,,and I am NOT aiming to injure or scare!

Wouldn't work for me as both my cars are classic so don't have alarms!! It is a good idea though. Thankfully I live in a very low crime area but you can never be too careful.

I agree Hans! As a friend of mine from South Africa says, you shoot to kill.
