The "Brief Safe" [l]


The "Brief Safe" is an innovative new diversion safe that can secure your cash, documents, and other small valuables from inquisitive eyes and thieving hands, both at home and when you're traveling. Items can be hidden right under their noses with these specially-designed briefs which contain a fly-accessed 4" x 10" secret compartment with Velcro® closure and "special markings" on the lower rear portion. Leave the "Brief Safe" in plain view in your laundry basket or washing machine at home, or in your suitcase in a hotel room - even the most hardened burgler or most curious snoop will "skid" to a screeching halt as soon as they see them. (Wouldn't you?) Made in USA. One size. Color: white (and brown). To add realistic smell, check out "Doo Drops" on Page 67.

I've mentioned it in passing to people before, but if anyone out there likes buying things for dirt-cheap prices, you should check out (which also has an rss feed and an lj feed here: slickdeals).

The latest Slick Deal:

They link to all kinds of deals, not just computer deals - today alone they had the Dell system, Soul Caliber 2 for $20, a Farberware cutlery + skillet set for $15, A Muvo2 4G mp3 player for $185, an 8x DVD-RW/CD-RW drive for $65, and a free MS Security Training course.  Not bad.
