With Christmas just a few weeks out, many people opt to have expensive packages delivered to their homes. AAA has a few tips to protect yourself from holiday thieves. 

First, if you're out shopping, don't leave your bags where they can be easily seen. When you get home, don't put off unloading your purchases. Go ahead and take them in quickly.

Next, schedule expensive packages to be dropped off when you're home – that way you won't be vulnerable to porch pirates.

Finally, don't leave gifts near a window when they are easily visible.
