You Only Live Once, This Is How I'm Doing It!

Dollar, dollar bill y’all

I have a confession to make. I hide money. Why?

Well, you know that feeling when you put on a pair of just washed jeans, stick your hand in the pocket and pull out a $20, or even a $5?

Or even a dollar?

Shut up I’ve been out of work for a year. I get excited about a quarter.

Anyway, isn’t that the best feeling?

I think it is. In fact, I like that feeling so much that I put money places where I know I won’t find it for a long time. Long enough that I forget that I hid it in the first place.

Sometimes I hide bills our in winter coats right before they get packed away for the summer. Getting coats out is always kind of depressing because that means it’s actually really cold outside. Reaching in my pocket and finding a $20 at least makes me smile.

Suitcases are also great but since I became a flight attendant not nearly as effective. However, there are some inner pockets that I almost never use. When I get around to cleaning them out extremely rarely every once in awhile I find a $20.

I’m pretty sure those are the main places I hide money. Of course, I’m not positive about that. Which obviously is the whole point, isn’t it?

So, you better stay close to me. And hope you outlive me. When I’m ridiculously old and finally kick the bucket? Cleaning out my house is going to be like going on a treasure hunt.


Baby talk


True rock and roll

    Haha that's so funny. I love finding money. Funny story once I hid a bunch of cash in my tampon box because I didn't wanna leave it in my purse and we had maintenance guys coming..but anyways I got it out later that day and then a month later I reached in their and found forty dollars. It was a nice surprise haha

    • That is pretty funny. Good place to hide it too. Most boys would be too scared to poke around in a box of tampons. Probably made *that* time of the month a little more pleasant too. hehe

    this is a great idea and I might have to start doing this.

  3. I did not even think of that. Guess there will have to be a break in my quirk when I have children old enough to know the value of money living in my house.

    Smart lady. Thanks.

    I totally do this too! Every one of my purses that has a zip-up pocket has a bill stashed there. And I definitely forget it's there and then when I find it, it's quite a great surprise…I'm glad i'm not the only one! : )
    It's also come in handy when I suddenly realize I don't have any cash in my wallet…
