  • I have a stash in the back of one of the kitchen cabinets....because I'm the only one who cooks so I figured it would be safe there. So far no one has found it.

  • I used to keep my money in my glove box (it locked w/ my car key) and didn't tell anyone because I suspected a boyfriend of taking my money.
    A 20 would go missing here and there and at the time I thought I had forgotten to factor in that I spent it somewhere then one day almost 200 went missing and my lock was undone in my work locker (only my piece of shit bf at the time knew the combo)

  • When I was younger I did.
    My husband has hid money without telling me- actually that's not really true. He offered to take some bills out to the mail and instead he hid them. I was pissed!! So yeah, he doesn't try to hide money from me anymore.

  • This is what banks are for. If you can think of a hiding place, then so can someone else.

  • yes...Its my "Cookie Jar" money. I keep extra cash in a cookie jar. Its for pizza on occasions, paying the lawn boy, girl scout cookies, emergencies. There isnt a lot of dough (LOL) in there but its nice to have just in case.
