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. The video here has some
more ideas for how to hide money...
Let's look at a few more places to hide cash that were not
covered in the video...
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
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.
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.
In the Woods
It can be tricky to hide money in a wilderness area for a
variety of reasons. First, it is easy to forget exactly where
you put the stash. In that case it might be a hundred years or
more before anyone sees it again. Second, it can become dislodged.
If you bury a plastic jar full of cash where floods might move
the earth, or where tree roots might pull it up when the tree
falls in a storm, the stash can be visible to the next person
to pass by. Accessibility is an issue as well. You have to travel
to your hiding place to get the money.
But if it is done right, there are some advantages when you
hide money in the woods. First, if you want to get some cash
out of your home, the wilderness is one place where you are unlikely
to be on camera. Second, it is a place where criminals and others
searching for your money are very unlikely to look. So it can
be a decent choice. Just bury it in a waterproof container, make
sure it will remain where it is through any expected weather
events, and hide any evidence of digging. Whether you want to
leave directions to it with a friend in case of death, or just
reward some future treasure hunter with a surprise find two hundred
years from now is up to you.
With a little imagination you can find many other places to
hide currency. There is also more on how to hide money in the
