How do I hide my alcohol bottles from parents??? Help

I’m travelling early tomorrow morning and while packing I realized that I have 2 bottles of vodka in my room. My parents will kill me if they find it. They don’t usually look through my room but I’m gone for 2 weeks so they have ample time to. Also I just don’t want to bring anxiety on my trip. I don’t care about the alcohol I will happily throw it away, but where?? I can’t throw it in the bin because they will obviously see. I was thinking of going in the garden and burying it in some bushes but my dad is home. Idk what to do. Btw these bottles are literally full, so much wasted. Please help

empty it down the sink, hide the bottles under the mattress. If you're having issues with drinking, please chat to your GP, two whole vodka bottles in a bedroom might not be a good sign
Are your parents against you drinking if so then maybe try and find a public bin someone near (put them in a bag and say your going shopping and then maybe bring home a bag of crisps) if they're fine with you drinking then maybe just leave them

"my parents will kill me if they find it" OP says, so nope

But I mean they might kill them because they aren't supposed to be drinking or just because they don't want them to have alcohol in their room so it could be for different reasons so i was just wondering why as I would advise different things for different situations

Hide it in plain sight by adding it to their alcohol collection.

yes they’re against me drinking. i can’t leave the house because i’m busy with packing and have so much to do. i can’t just leave for 5 minutes to get crisps or something else because i never do that so it’s extremely suspicious.

that’s really smart but unfortunately my parents are very religious and don’t drink💀

i’m only bringing carry on
- a binder for papers, empty it and put the bottle in it, keep it upright and tuck it away somewhere
- a boot
- a box ( shoebox )
- in a coat pocket ( some coats have huge pockets ) tucked in a wardrobe
- wrap it in paper and say it's a gift
- put it behind your toilet ( if you have your own)
- put it behind the shampoo bottles in the bathroom ( if you have your own )
- say you were given it as a gift and wanted to ask them the best way to get rid of it ( if there's no way to hide it, approach them with this excuse, don't try to pull it once they've already found it )
- loose floorboard
- under the bed hidden in a box or under a cover
- ask your dad if you can take over his gardening, take them with you, check if your neighbours are in their garden and if they're adults, just hand it to them
- go out to the front, say it's because you heard they might be picking up the recycling, put the bottles in it and hide them
- put them on the balcony / under the windowsill on the outside
- put them in a drawer that's never opened and cover them in a sock + pile on other things
- ask a friend to come visit to "help you pack" but just give it to them and tell them to say it was theirs if your parents see it
Fill them with gravel/sand/nice pebbles. Put an artificial flower or homemade cardboard flower in each one. Now place on windowsill or use as bookends. They could look as though you bought them at a craft fair.

Alternatively wrap in Christmas or Birthday paper & put your parents name on the gift tag.
Take them with you and on the way bin them.

thank you for so many ideas. i have 4 shoe boxes under my bed with stuff and also alot of other boxes with clothes so i think i will put it there and just pray. i don’t think my parents will go through the hassle of looking under my bed unless they know something is there? i really hope so, i will shove it right at the back
