I don't think this will make the game too easy, since you need to exercise good judgement as to what to put in the safe deposit box. Just a speculation.

Poverty is one of the game's little challenges, both at the beginning and the first time some kindly adventurer drags your carcasses back to Teralt.

Also, there actually *is* a way that you can store items beyond the characters that you have. Create new characters and make them stay in the town, they can act like pseudo-safeboxes. I do that with my extra-special items. I have all the items of extra specialness, and I have 1 or 2 characters that do nothing but sit in Teralt and hold a backup of all the items of extra specialness (in case I want them in the future for some reason, like maybe retraining characters), and the keys from the earlier levels.
