After everyone in your family have opened their gifts on Christmas, break down the boxes and put them in your recycle container. Don’t leave any excess boxes showing outside of the container. Would be burglars can use the boxes as a sign that your house is worth breaking into if they see what you bought as gifts. They especially like to take high value electronics such as Xbox One’s, flat screen TV’s, cell phones, etc. Placing your old boxes in your recycling takes away knowledge of what you have and takes away an opportunity for a thief to steal from you.
And have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
