Top 11 effective spots where to hide your money at home

1) Hide your cash in a solid colored jar and keep it in a fish tank

2) In a plastic bag in the freezer

The freezer provides numerous options for keeping the money. For instance, you can put your cash in an airtight bag, then keep it in a fridge. Also, you can put your money in a Ziploc bag and stick the bag in between two pieces of trays. Wrap these bags with aluminum foils and bind with masking tape, then put some writings on the masking take. Intruders won't have time to read the papers or even to remove the wrap.

8) Underneath a potted plant (or even buried in a small jar in the soil)

9) Tape your cash under a lamp

It will be beneficial only if you have a little bit of cash. In this case, you can tape it under the base of your lamps. No one will notice that it's bulging with dead presidents. However, if you want to hide more money, then you can tape it under several lamps around your house.

10) Inside socks

If you have big amounts of money, you can divide them into smaller parts then put them in different socks. After putting all your cash, you can store them in the wardrobe. A wardrobe is actually a sound place, but only if you use it wisely; otherwise, it can be an easy target for an intruder.

11) In a tampon box

At first, it may sound crazy, but it's one of the most exceptional options. After all, a tampon box is a small, anonymous place that a burglar isn't bound to go through unless it's your guests that take things without permission.
