    I keep a ten, a five, five ones, and six quarters in my bag. They rarely get used but have certainly come in handy.

    I used to keep a $20 folded up in fourths in my wallet in an inner slot w/ insurance and other rarely used cards for emergencies --- then money got tight and for a long while, didn't spend (or have) any cash to speak of. I suppose I should go back to doing that.

    Place the cash in a small sturdy plastic pouch and duct tape it to your appendix area.

    I know that the likes of CRKT sell a bracelet with survival items inside, how about storing a note or two in something similar??

    Muggings have occurred for that same reason. It's no "haha" matter.

    When fully worn below the belt line inside the pants, does not print and I can't even tell I'm wearing it.

    I just have a debit card from a separate bank account with £40 in it in my EDC bag. It's enough to get me home if I do get mugged but if my bag gets lost/stolen and for some reason I can't recover the money, it's not too bad a loss. Just no beer money for a few weeks.

    I also keep a tenner in the storage compartment of my motorbike. It'll get me a tank of fuel and see me home

    I've got $100 dispersed throughout my wallet outside of my spending cash which I try to replenish at least weekly. I keep a similar amount in the front pocket of my Vanquest organizer in my EDC bag which I also keep about 20 quarters in. In my truck I've got 15-20 $1 bills and in the console way too much change, lol.

    Spare cash folded flat in plastic in a shoe. Not a biggie to rotate it.
    For travel I have a calves pouch.

    On me, nope. I rarely hold cash.

    In my glove box I have extra money, in my backpack I have extra money.
    I'm always around either.

    Any cash I'm carrying is potential beer/stripper money so no need to separate it although I do always try to keep £50-£100 in another pocket so I can at least get a taxi home without having to wake the house up whilst I raid drawers for cash to pay the taxi in my most stealthy drunken manner like an elephant wearing clogs apparently.

    If wearing jeans a few quid tucked into the coin pocket, if wearing a suit a few quid into one of the back pockets because I may lose my jacket if I lose my keks chances are it'll have been a brilliant night out but the divorce would cost me much more than any mugger could ever take.

    I spread my money out. Some in my wallet, some in my hat band, some in my cell phone case, all neatly hidden and concealed.
