How to Keep Your Money Safe: 8 Hiding Places

Hiding some cash at home for emergencies or safely taking it with you when you travel can prove to be quite a task. But 5-Minute Crafts knows how you can turn ordinary objects into ingenious hiding spots that will help you to save your secret stash from being stolen.

1. An egg with a secret

Preparation: Take an egg and crack it in such a way that its shell is broken in the middle of one of the egg’s side parts. Remove the yolk and the egg white and clean the inside part of the egg. After that:

  1. Take the eggshell and put a folded banknote inside it.
  2. Add sunflower seeds inside the shell to make the egg heavier. This way, the egg will feel like a real one.
  3. Pour glue on top of the seeds to make them stick together.
  4. Take a piece of sandpaper and even out the surface of the seeds so that they, along with the shell, are on the same level.
  5. Cover the egg with white paint.
