I've had stuff stolen (not too valuable, thankfully!) out of my checked baggage so I will either bring it in my carry on if I really need to bring it with me or I'll just leave it at home!

Carry-on ONLY. I also don't travel with anything that can't be replaced, with the exception of my 23 year old ratty teddy bear that I won't part with. He gets carryon space, which is a big deal because he's not travel sized.

Same here -- no valuables in my check-in luggage. When it comes to my jewelry, I'm extra-paranoid, as I wear them. They're very expensive and sentimental items. Putting them in my carry-on is not good enough. Yes, I've set-off alarm, but when the security guards learn it's my bling, they're okay with it. :)

I remember reading about how easy it is for people... including security swiping valuables when checking luggage... Besides when I am traveling I don't want to have to worry about certain handbags, jewelry, sunglasses etc.....it is bad enough having to stress about my laptop and credit cards and making sure I have all of those goodies. traveling can be so stressful at times...less it more in the end.

I usually leave the things I couldn't stand losing at home but when I don't they go in my handbag or carry on. One of my closest friends had her brand new Chanel sunglasses stolen out of her checked bag.

When I fly to school I need to check most of my stuff. But I always make sure I pack my most prized pieces like my favorite balenciaga shoes, missoni scarves, and childhood stuffed animal :o) in my carry on. My checked bag still has valuable pieces but not the priceless.

Only in my carry-on, and I try to limit it even at that. I think I'd be panicking the whole time if I had anything valuable in my checked bag(s)

I try not to travel with anything valuable but if I need to I ALWAYS put it in my carry on. Putting valuables in your checked baggage is almost asking for it to get lost/stolen/damaged. I even hate the 30 long seconds that I have to part with my valuables when my carry-on goes through security! ha

Leaning the hard way, never pack anything valuable and even then you can get taken to the cleaners at your destination. Been there done that.

I would never pack anything valuable in a checked bag. Always in the carry on! You never know who's going through your stuff once it gets taken away!

I always put my jewelry and other valuables in my carry-on. I don't have a lot of jewelry but the few pieces I have are expensive and mean a lot to me.
