Better "Safe" Than Sorry, so Lock Up Your Shoes?

I definitely don't check into a hotel room just expecting someone to steal something, but it's better to be on the safe side when stashing stuff.

To discourage theft, obviously you'd put any valuable items not used everyday inside the safe. But, even if you don't have anything that deserves to be locked up more than anything else (in your eyes), simply lock up something, truly anything from a tank top to your shoe. Seeing an activated safe implies all the good stuff is in there . . . and not in the drawers or still in your suitcase. Sure, this may be going too far for some, how about you?
