  • I hide some money just in case. I have a habbit of loosing my bank card. If it should happen over the weekend at least I have some cash. It's also good in the event I wanna order a pizza or something at the last minute.

  • No I would never hide money... ALL of the money is OUR money. My husband has full rain over anything in our house even money. Hiding it would be sneaky... I'm not!

  • This reminds me of an episode of George Lopez when his moms house burns down and she had like thousands of dollars hidden in a mattress or something. Yeah... too risky.

  • I have a little lock box in my laundry room that has a little money in it...nothing actual savings is in the bank...its almost like a "petty cash" lol...we use it if we decide we want to go out somewhere or if we need some quick cash.

  • no, but a friend of ours day we were having a bbq and were getting ready to go out and he was like "BRB!!" He came back with all thismoney lol..
    Said the economy is too many and will not leave his money in a bank so he keeps it hidden in his house

    If his house burns...

  • I don't but I worked at a bank and had a customer who kept it in there oven until there hubby came home and turned it on. She had about 2K in the oven and it was gone. Some people are dumb. So if you are keeping it at home be VERY selective as to where you keep it.
