For those that keep liquid cash on hand, how do you store it? The reason Im asking is because I want to do this but am worried someone will break in and steal it or there will be a fire. Only other option is a fireproof safe right? The thing is the safe could get stolen too. Do they make very small fireproof safes so that I can hide it better? Let me know what you do.

My safe is bolted to the floor. Cash is in the safe with extra ammo and guns. Thieves/Burglars know they might have a limited amount of time to get in and out. They'll grab your laptop, x-box, loose cash and anything not bolted down. Even had someone grab the terrier in one case. If you are out of town and a criminal has time they might try for the safe. Most aren't moving in a team-like group unless you've been staked out.

Put it in the safe.

Check and see how how much cash your homeowners/renters insurance covers in the event of a fire.


As for how, where, etc.... PERSEC.

Several thousand dollars in 20's doesn't occupy much space - which means that it can be hidden just about anywhere. Even the smallest fire vault (shoebox-sized) will hold a LOT of cash.

5 gal Jerry cans?

Well I put it in the gun safe... safe is alarmed and bolted... Otherwise hide in something unsuspecting littl elock boxes that are portible even if strapped to something or bolted to something... often the locking mechanisms are so simple and frail a 12 yearold with a screw driver can get into them. I'd invest in a large quality gunsafe if I were you.

i keep a couple thousand in my house.

some is in the safe, but just like my guns, all are not.

some in ammo boxes under the ammo.

some in ammo boxes jammed up in the rafters.

half is in ammo boxes in detached garage.

i dont use this money as my personal ATM. its hard to get to on purpose.

If they can't find it, they can't steal it.

My favorite place to keep things safe is wrapped in a scuzzy looking paper towel, in a small see-thru tupperware container, hidden in the bottom/back of the freezer. There is some small amount of fire resistance there, and no one is likely to dig thru your freezer and steal a plastic tub that has a wadded up, icky looking paper towel in it.

If you put jewelry or precious metals in there, make sure they're wrapped up in such a way that the metal won't clink if they happen to pick it up.

I like the tupperware 'cuz it's easy to get in and out of if you need to access the contents. If you plan to leave it there untouched for long periods of time, you might want to wrap it in freezer paper and label it something like "Pig's Liver - 9/5/98."

LOL, We used to keep cash in the freezer. Never that much. When we began keeping more cash on hand we began keeping it in the bolted down safe. We don't keep more then $2000 in the house.

Also, wife is probably less likely to accidentally throw out a Tupperware container than something wrapped in plastic or tin foil, next time she cleans out the freezer.

I wrote this in GD for someone looking to hide a gun and some cash. A single gang box would work just find if all you intend to put in there is cash.

$5 at Home Depot.

Go buy a 2 gang electrical Old Work plastic box, 2 receptacles, and a 2 gang cover plate.

Find a nice spot in your house, maybe behind a chair or something, install the box there. Make sure it's not out of place.

You now have two options, you can either use the box itself to hold cash or something small, or you can simply remove the box itself and use the wall cavity as the safe, this will easily fit many handguns. Put the handguns into a plastic shopping bag and lower it into the wall with the handles of the shopping bag sticking up so it could be retrieved easily.

If you have hot air heat or AC, one extra low wall register will not look out of place.

Large cinder block
Container: (PVC, Glass, whatever)
Cement into the one of holes in the cinder block
Paint one of the sides of the cinder block so you can identify it (hopefully) if something happens to the house.
Throw it up in that attic, and forget about it
One whack with a sturdy hammer, you've got your cash

OR

Buy a threaded (both ends) piece of galvanized steel pipe. Roll up the cash tightly, wrap with a piece paper and tape it. Place in the pipe but make sure it slides freely inside. Cap both ends.
Put the pipe in the basement among other pipes, or even secure it to a floor joist, CLOSEST to the foundation, and out of view of the room entrance.

OR

Buy one of the "False" containers that entry level dope dealers use, and keep it in the back of the fridge.

You gotta be careful with this. Most interior doors are hollow, the money could drop down and get lodged somewhere in the middle and the only way to get it out might be to break the door. Some hollow doors have a cardboard honeycomb, this would prevent the money from falling down.
Link Posted: 3/13/2011 6:25:57 AM EST
If you're good with ceramic floor tiles, you put one down over a hollow spot in the slab with easy-to-remove mortar (or have a bunch of extra tile). After a week, the new grout will match the old grout pretty well. Cash can't be found easily without a metal detector––besides there's wire mesh in lots of slabs. NO ONE is going to hammer up all the tile in your house looking for "maybe" cash. Fire won't destroy it in the slab. Hurricanes won't blow it away. No search will find it. Only problem is it takes you a few minutes to get to and an hour to cover up afterwards.

I won't say whether or not I do this, but there's too much tile to look everywhere anyway... the whole dang house has tile floors.

TomJefferson's post is very important.

You just admitted to having over $15,000 in your home safe on the internet. You made yourself a target for someone in MI.

Simple searching shows that you are 38 years old, 6 foot tall and 215lbs, you are very busy with your job (police detective) so you probably aren't home much and sometimes you get called into work at night, you live in Ypsilanti, you drive an 04 Kia Sedone. Wow, I actually just got your name, address, and phone number too, all from a Google search of your username here.

As soon as you see this I will edit all of it out of my post. I think you should edit your post as well, you can't be too careful.

Even if someone's username isn't linked to their true name, it's not that hard to find out who you are or where you live. An example is using online purchasing. Someone could buy something that you are selling to get your address, or try to sell you something. Maybe they see you talking about a specific firearm and PM you with an offer for one at a great price. They could also pay off someone that you did business with in the past.

You really have to be careful with what you admit to online.

Ok so how about, how would you keep cash in your house? What is the best and safest way?


How much cash are we talking?

If my house burns down the amount of cash I will lose is trivial compared to emotional trauma and sentimental losses.

Thieves who know they have time will strip the place bare anyway, including the wires.

Therefore I hide it in plain sight. A few envelopes (pick a number known to you) with relatively small amounts in each one, hidden amongst normal clutter. Smash and grab thieves are going to grab the stereo, computer, tools from the garage, framed prints, and might try for the gunsafe. I am betting on them not sorting through something like pile of cell phone bills or my wife's Lori Wick paperbacks looking for the envelope that has a couple hundred bucks in it.

A piece of PVC pipe or a mason jar in the yard works too.

I like this idea. I would think that having a garden in the backyard would be an ideal place to put that jar ot pvc pipe as long as you didnt turn it up next year when you are trying to plant your tomatoes
