How to Hide Your Money

How to Hide Your Money

I learned how to hide money when I was young, in part because we had a busy house with lots of people coming and going. I had some money buried. I also had some inside a wall in a closet. It was accessed by way of a false panel that filled the space above the closet door and was painted to look just like the other walls. My parents may not have liked the fact that I cut a big hole in the wall, but nobody ever knew.

Under Carpet

If you have a piece of carpet which is loose, you can pull up a corner and put an envelope full of currency underneath. A thief is not likely to know that the carpet is loose. Just be sure not to place the money where people regularly walk, or there may be a telltale crunching sound of paper to give the location away.


Under Soles of Shoes

This is a trick I use when traveling, but you can also stash some cash under the inner sole of running shoes that are in your closet. Just be sure not to do this with expensive shoes that might be robbed.


Inside Pillows

If you are handy with needle and thread you can open the seam on a throw-pillow and insert some cash. Then sew it back up with a few stitches. But don;t make it the best pillow in the house, as this too could be stolen.


Piano Music Sheets

Sheet music is almost never taken by thieves, and it is not a common hiding place for cash (unlike books). That makes this location worth considering.


Under a Deck

A plastic vitamin container or or closing waterproof container can be great for hiding money in a variety of places. A small hole under the edge of a deck, for example, can hold a small bottle full of cash. Be sure nobody is watching when you make the stash, of course.


With a little imagination you can find many other places to hide currency.
