Junk Shoes in the Garage
from AOL user: Tropicangelfish

Inside Curtain Rods

In Another Country
from AOL user: Mdiosdado1

Bottom of Paper Shredder Bin
from AOL user: G0dFatherMezz715

Mason Jar in Buried in Garden
from AOL user: WDCONSULT

Piggy Bank in Freezer

Inside a Wooden Door
from AOL user: Babybooboo100
"Do you have solid wood doors in your home? Chisel out a niche in the top of the door. You can actually go close to the entire length of the door and run it about 2 to 3 inches deep if you're careful. Even documents rolled tightly can fit there. Great place if you have kids who pilfer cash from you, no one has ever found it yet."
Under the Litter Box
from AOL user: dawnofthedanes
"Under the litter box, well ... one of the five: I figure that by the time the thief gets close, he/she will succumb to the aroma before they get what little I have."
Inside a Teddy Bear
from AOL user: Aliciag1800

In a Tank With Mean Fish
from AOL user: Chi-Town Frown
"Acquire a nice aqaurium filled with piranhas and put your stash under the gravel. "Never put your valuables in the bedroom that's the first place a thief looks! Try under a nailed-down carpet, hollowed-out Bible, reversible heels (where the heels turn out and you put your stash in, then click them back into place).
In Cement Blocks
from AOL user: Horse00
"Well My home was built on a cement block foundation and I have stashed away enough in my cement blocks to keep me going for a good while. If you don't know my method of where it is hidden you ain't gonna find it. And yes if something happens to me my family will get a diagram of where it all is."
In the Tampon Box
from AOL user: Elizarden5547
"My sister-in-law used to hide money from her husband in the tampon box."
In an Old Winter Coat
from AOL user: Pearl729
"My ex-boyfriend had a bad habit of going through my purses looking for money to buy beer. I started hiding money inside my winter coat. I cut a very small hole in the armpit area of the inner layer, and stuffed the bills into the coat (no coins). I'd managed to put away almost $400 in a few months."
