The Christmas and New Year period is a festive time full of family fun, merry spirits and evenings out. Keeping your belongings safe over this period is crucial, especially as your home may be filled with brand new presents you may have received for Christmas. When going on festive evenings out with friends or colleagues, it is important to ensure that any expensive belongings that are not necessarily required during the evening are kept in a secure place.
New Year’s safety tips for your belongings
New Year’s Eve parties can occasionally end up a bit crazy, with bags, coats and other belongings strewn across the place. Making sure not to lose anything or have anything stolen can be difficult on this night of the year. However, if you follow these steps, you should go home with everything in one piece!
Keep expensive items locked away
Taking your brand-new Rolex or diamond jewellery out with you over the New Year isn’t completely necessary. Ensuring that any items you don’t want to lose are secured at home in a home safe will provide peace of mind and allow you to enjoy your evening.
Only take what you need
Don’t take everything out with you. Only take what you need to minimise the risk of losing any valued or even sentimental items. Take just enough money to cover the night, but not too much that could be spent unnecessarily or lost and your keys and phone.
Stick with your friends
If you’re going out with friends, make sure to stick with them all night. Ensuring that a group of people you know well is around you will help reduce the risk of stolen or lost items. As well as this, it can help keep you safe personally, as you will be in the presence of people who have a good knowledge of you.
