It’s a good idea to store some cash at home for use in an emergency.

If you are going to hide gold and valuable objects at home, you need some good hiding places to keep everything safe. Check out some of the coolest hiding places in your home for gold, cash, and more.

In a Hollowed-Out Book

One of the oldest tricks for hiding money at home is in a hollowed-out book. It’s still a good idea, especially if you have a lot of books, because it would take someone a really long time to go through all of them to find your money stash. You could also just put some dollar bills in random pages of a book instead of hollowing it out.

In a Jar in the Toilet Tank

I don’t know about you, but I can count the number of times I’ve looked inside my toilet tank on one hand, so it’s a pretty good hiding place. If you are going to store money in the tank on the back of your toilet, you should make sure to put it in a water-tight container. Of course, if the money gets a little wet, that’s ok — it doesn’t dissolve in water.

Sewn Inside the Lining of a Jacket or Pillow

Not many people would suspect that you are hiding money inside an old jacket or a decorative pillow, but it’s really easy to hide it in the lining. Just make sure that you hide it in a jacket or pillow that a loved one won’t mistakenly throw out. If your spouse likes to clean out the closet, make sure they are aware of the money stash.

If you are being robbed nobody is going to take frozen meat out of your freezer, so disguise your money to look like it. Before using the money, though, you’ll have to leave it out for a day or two to defrost, so you’ll have to plan ahead if you need to use the money.

Inside a DVD Case of a Movie You Never Watch

This is a great idea if you have a large DVD collection. A robber isn’t going to spend the time to go through each of your DVDs, and if you put your money in the case of a movie nobody is ever going to watch, chances are pretty good that a robber won’t bother taking it.

Underneath an Entertainment Center, Piano, or Anything Else that Weighs a Lot

People don’t usually bother to take heavy items when they are robbing you because it takes too much time and effort. So, your money will be pretty safe underneath a heavy object. Plus, you might be able to save the money for longer because you’ll think twice before taking the time to remove it yourself.

All of these are pretty good hiding places for money, gold, and more, but make sure you remember where your hiding place is. It would be annoying if you went to use your emergency money and couldn’t remember where it was.
