"What does the top edge of say, your utility closet door look like? I'm betting that you've never seen it, even if you've lived in your home for awhile. And although there's not a lot of room to hide stuff in there, well, if you're like me, the stuff you want to hide is usually on the smaller side. Not many people think of the space inside the door as a hiding spot, but it's right there in easy reaching distance when you need to get to it. And it's devious enough that, yes, I think this trick will still be effective even after I blog it all over the web" By Sean Michael Ragan.
