We've all been there, you've planned a holiday and now have some extra cash on hand or you're old-fashioned and value hard earned cash instead of the credit card in your wallet. Either way, you now need to store that money in a safe secure place when you head out for the day. In this homify feature, we look at 10 places that you should never hide your money. These helpful hints and tips will guide your secret cash stash, so let's take a look!

1. Invest in the safe

One of the most important things to have in your home is a quality safe. You can store everything from money and jewellery in a safe, keeping your valuables out of sight.

2. Under the bed

Unless you're a grandma, hiding cash under the bed is a bad idea.

3. Pedestal

Another bad idea is to store your cash in your pedestal, dressing table or bed side table.

4. Chest

That storage chest in the living room is great for extra bed linen, not your money.

5. In the cupboard

Your cupboards are for clothing and storing anything else here would just be irresponsible.

6. The freezer

Some people are creative enough to hide their money in a kitchen appliance. The problem with hiding it in the freezer, is that you may not find it when you're looking or it might smell like onions.

7. The attic

Criminals are smarter than you think, and if you have an attic, it may not be the ideal spot for cash storage either.

8. Wallet

Walking around with a large sum of cash is a terrible idea too. Place your money in a safe place as soon as you come home.

9. In the garden

Someone might see your burying your hard-earned wealth here and it may disappear right under your nose. Your trusty dog might dig it up and hide it somewhere else.

10. Behind a frame
