Do you squirrel away/hide money away for a "rainy day"?

I keep holding money on the side in the event that I truly find something I want...is that wrong?

  • I've been squirreling money for the last 8 months. That's what we are buying Christmas with. If I hadn't done that .... I shudder at the though.

  • Years ago when I was about 18 and single and was barely getting by I stuck a $20 bill in 1 of the compartments in my wallet I never used & forgot about it. A few months later I was beyond broke and was cleaning out my purse & found it, lol!

  • I put away any spare cash in my sock drawer. I use it for presents for DH or spending cash for road trips.

  • I keep money in accounts. If I were to hide it I may never be able to find it again.

  • I sure do. Whether it's like anon and I stick an extra $50 or $100 bill somewhere in my wallet or van, or put some off the top of my paycheck into my savings account (MY savings is for "fun". DH and my joint savings is for saving.)

  • I squirreled away a twenty recently, and now I can't remember where it is.

    I have a Paypal account that nobody knows about. That's the magic mommy hat that I can always pull something out of.
