Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need:

-Drip Pan
-Construction Paper (the same color as your refrigerator)
-Large Ziploc Bag
-Valuables (Ex: cash, coins, notes, etc.)

Step 2: Trace & Cut the Paper

First, take the construction paper and trace the drip pan on it. Next, cut it out and make sure it fits on the drip pan.

Step 3: Trace & Cut the Bag

Trace the drip pan on the Ziploc. After, carefully cut the bag. This cutout will be used to cover the paper so that it will not get wet if water from the fridge goes into the drip pan. This part is important in keeping your valuables and the paper dry.

Step 4: Tape the Bag on the Paper

Take the plastic Ziploc cutout and tape it onto the paper cutout. When you tape it on, make sure to put the tape all around the edges so that water will not be able to get to the paper.

Step 5: Hide Your Stuff

Next, remove the drip pan from your fridge. Put your valuables in the bottom of it, and then put the paper and plastic bag cutout on top, the plastic facing upward. Make sure your valuables are completely covered under the cutout.

Step 6: Done!

Finally, put the drip pan back on top of the cutout. It should now look just like a regular part of the refrigerator. No one will ever know!

Don't substitute the ziploc baggie for plastic wrap. I have wet money now.

it is waterproof? Because if not, you'll end with a bunch of wet money

It's waterproof! The plastic bag on the paper that is underneath the drip pan protects the paper and the money from water
