Hide in the Open, Cat/Dog Food Hidiejar

A quick and easy way to hide something in plain sight. Might seem strange if you don't have a dog or cat, but the intruders might think they were hiding also.

Step 1: No Special Tools Needed

This is a 'out in the open' take off on the hide in the noodles or beans on the kitchen self idea. All you need is a container, large enough to hold a smaller container and dog or cat food. I just happen to have an old glass jar that I use in the kitchen and see when its getting low but you could use any storage container.

Step 2: Put in Things, Money, Etc, That You Might Need Fast

Put a little of the food in the bottom of the jar. Just enough to cushion the hidie jar. Place the smaller one inside the middle of the larger container.

Step 3: Caught in the Act!

Fill the jar or container up around the center container and your done.

Yes, that is the dog eating the cat food. The cat also likes the dog food so I guess it evens out. Just be sure to not use you food down past the interior jar so it can be seen.

    Ha! I like this. I could definitely do this with my dog's giant food container. :)

    I saw the title and immediately thought of The X-Files episode "Folie à Deux" when Gary Lambert starts ranting, "It hides in the light!"

    Good idea with the hiding tip!  They never expect things to hide in plain view!
