We all forget our keys sometimes. I've had to stumble through the back window just to get home or call a friend who keeps an extra key to my home more than a couple of times. Plus, don't even get me started on losing your keys. And, since leaving my front door unlocked would be less than safe, trying to find the perfect place to hide our house keys seems like a good idea. However, hiding the key in a pot seemed cliche. So, here are some of my favorite ideas on what to use for a spare key hider.

Some people trust their neighbors with the responsibility of a spare key. Others live on the edge and just keep it in their house. But finding weird places to hide the spare key might be the most fun and responsible way to ensure you are never locked out.
