Places we stash our cash
« on: May 19, 2019, 02:12:55 pm »
There are people who don't feel comfortable putting their money in the bank; so I found an article listing some places that people stash money:

1. Freezer
2. Between books
3. Buried in the ground'
4. In a pill bottle
5. In a paper towel roll
6. In an outside shed
7. In an old pair of shoes
8. In a kleenex tissue box
9. In a hygiene box
10. In a stuffed animal
11. In the top part of the toilet
12. In the cat litter box
13. In a trailer hitch
14, In an old bottle of wine
15. In a box of dry pasta

On this list, the freezer and stuffed animal are two that I have heard people of doing.
Have you heard of any of these places? Do you know of other places not on the list?

I have many places around the house I stash money. In fact, while cleaning I love coming across places even I forgot I had. Ha ha ha :D  Now, I tend to keep them in only a few places so this doesn't happen as often. I figure this is best as I am getting older! ;)

Well I don't have that to worry about, don't keep any money left over after paying bills.

I have a few places here and there where I hide money.  I remember once, a long time ago, I had put about 30 or 40 bucks in an envelop then put it in a safe place.   8)

I had completely forgotten that I had the cash. Many months went by when I was pleasantly surprised by what I found in my dresser ( or wherever it was ).   :o

Now I have become more careful about where my cash stash goes.  It's one thing to stash money away; it's another thing to forget you had it in the first place.   ::)

What cash???  I can't seem to hold on to it long enough to stash it.  I do keep some hid in a couple of savings accounts...
Have a wonderful day!

I honestly can't remember the last time I had cash. I use a card for everything. Even vending machines have card readers now.

I have heard about most of these places.  I have used books (I don't anymore)  but still when I get rid of a book I turn it it upside down and shake the pages to see if anything falls out. LOL

I have three places I keep emergency money.  I also need to keep some money in my car.  A few times I left my wallet at home and could have used that money.

Have a few places around the house and also keep loose change (mainly) quarters in the car; they do add up and take the weight of my purse!

I use the bank. However I do have a five gallon jug which I throw only silver coins in. I have it marked on the outside when its near 100.00 dollars. Just after passing that line I usually cash it in for bills. Thinking of letting it get half filled then cash it in. Wonder what it would add up to.

I have a huge  pickle jar where all of the loose change goes, Sometimes I  drop in a few  bucks .  I  don't  empty it  for a long time.  Last time we did we had almost $600.00 in it.  Enjoyed the  vacation.  A friend and I went to  clean out her Aunts house after she passed.  We had to  check every pocket on clothes and all of the furniture  She had envelopes taped everywhere. money in her clothes  under the mattress and just about  anywhere you would think .  It was a little on$12000.00.   And  some of the clothes had already been donated.  Wonder what  we missed.

my hard earned money.
