Here are 3 quick things to remember:
- Don’t leave empty boxes from expensive electronics on the curb after Christmas. It’s an invitation to thieves.
- Take a picture of expensive gifts you received, including a close-up photo of the serial number. If something is stolen, it will be much easier to prove that the item is yours.
- If you get gift cards that you don’t want, you can sell them for cash at gift card brokers.
