Many people have gone outdoors to get the newspaper in their robe and slippers then find that the door closed behind them and they are locked out. If somebody is home then there is no problem but what if you are home alone?
This morning when I went out to walk the dog I purposely left the side door open because I had no intention of leaving the yard. Yet when I returned I found the door locked. While I was on the other side of the house my husband locked the door and went to work. I was locked out without my phone or a spare key. What a situation I was in, my phone inside, my neighbor with the spare key out of town. I had two choices; break into the house or walk a mile in my pajamas to the next neighbor's house.
Had I bought the discrete garden accessories that had a secret compartment
for my house key, I would be able to get back inside easily.
I shopped online at Wallmart.com and found just what I needed. I like the synthetic rocks and other garden accessories for concealing your spare key. But think if I had a waterproof key-box that I could hide it anywhere outdoors.

Shop for an outdoor box for your key. Insert the key in the box. Make sure it is sealed before hiding the key box in the garden. Choose a planter then dig a shallow hole, set the key-box flush with the soil and cover with mulch.
Hide the key-box in patio furniture. Unzip a seat cushion or pillow and put the key-box inside.
Buy landscape rocks that are made to conceal keys. Hide the key underneath the rock in the special compartment. Then set rock around flower or other plant containers. Create a rock display on your porch, patio or garden.
Use gorilla brand tape to adhere the key-box to the backside or bottom of patio furniture. Make sure this furniture is flush with the wall.
