A few simple guidelines:
1. Never sell anything from your home.
2. Never reveal your home address to anyone whom you do not want to come to your house, including anyone from a cashier to a police officer.
3. Remove your home address from your ID. Nobody needs to know where your kids sleep in order to do business with you, or issue you a drivers license.
