Where do you hide

...your cash ?

I read a while back about the lady looking for $1million hidden in a mattress she junked.
She bought her elderly mother a new mattress as a surprise and threw out the old one, only to discover that her mother had hidden her life savings inside.

OMG ... what about the bank !

I remember as teenager my Grandfather , an ex bank manager (...truth !), buried his cash under a lemon tree in his back yard among other places ;). Problem was he had three ...and they forgot . Well I just remember them(Uncles & Grandfather) digging up all three ..looking !

Once my hubby sold a car to an bricklayer .We delivered the car to him and went inside to count the cash (several thousand dollars) ...all of it hard, 'cold' cash that smelt of dirt , dank and damp, it was old but it wasn't actually dirty.

It was in all denominations some were thick bundles of $10 paper notes, around the time of the introduction of the plastic polymer notes.

I didn't have to wonder too hard what he might have been up too or maybe he didn't trust banks either.

We have a small safe ...not for cash just to stash our chocolate away from our teenager !
