Seeking a hiding place for your valuables that no one will ever think of? Here are four tips.

  1. Store jewelry or money in a tennis ball. Place bills or items in a plastic bag, slit the ball and slip in the valuables.
  2. Nice cache! Slip a baggie of bills into a finger of a baseball glove.
  3. The kitchen is a great place to hide money. Put money in a plastic bag and place it in the bottom of a canister. Fill the canister with sugar or flour.
  4. Put your money on ice. Put your money into a plastic bag, slip it into a bag of frozen vegetables and clip the bag shut. Check with your jeweler before you put jewelry on ice.
