I give it to my wife. Good luck getting it from her!!
Ha! Fair enough.
I still use my shoe wallet from time to time.
I have a cache belt with some cash in and I used it today. I forgot my wallet and needed to buy some stuff and it meant that I could, although I did get some funny looks digging it out in the hardware store.
I also have an added pocket on the inside of my trousers, between the pocket lining and the leg that is just big enough for some cash and a copy of my passport if I'm abroad.
Empty chapstick tube.
I'd like to see about a belt with a hollow in it to allow dollar coins.. SInce I'm a size XX beefy burrito, should be able to keep 40 bucks in coins in it.. If anyone makes such a fashion piece..
That should make life interesting getting through myriad of metal detectors...! Yeah, at the airport you take off a belt anyway. But I've never seen where at (for instance) government buildings (e.g. courthouses) or stadiums you have to do that. But coins in the belt might get a wee bit interesting. Just sayin'!

I can get the butt enhancing clothing item that some women use, stuff it with dolla coins and call it ButCoins.. (TM).. Naa, but really.. I've seen belts at the rodeo in Houston with decorative coins somehow adhered to the outside of a belt.. Plus the dish sized belt buckle that doubles as a cooking surface or hasty shield..
some interesting ideas here. I keep enough money to solve a problem, and I see that as $100 these days. in addition to my "walking around money" there's a $100 tucked in my wallet for emergencies, surprises, etc. There's second wallet hidden in my truck with copies of cards I may need but not in a hurry, like insurance and crap. additional cash there.
I would also very strongly suggest you all keep like $1k or so in cash in the safe at home. Not for emergencies (but it does help) but also for quick money kind of deals. i've scored a couple great prices on guns because I was able to come up with cash in a hurry on a day the bank was closed :0
I was at a friend's consignment store and a customer just bought a men's wallet. He pulled out a folded up bill from inside. It was a $100.00, surprise!
€20 behind drivers license in wallet, so trick myself as it's out of sight for me, which seems to work pretty well
When traveling I will have a second ("mugger") wallet with some bills and several coins, which usually helps me out when I forgot to withdraw money from the ATM. Is refilled quickly to keep it's function.
I no longer EDC emergency cash anymore since I got my smartwatch. I will only bring emergency cash if we're traveling.
I stopped wearing my cache belt because I didn't like the bulk and went back to my 5.11 TDU belt, which was fine until I realised my car battery was flat a couple of days ago and I had to walk to a cash point to get money for a cab to come and jump start it.
Since then I've switched back to my cache belt and I've taped a little bit under the insole in the shoes I wear most often. Once I have a little more money to spare, I'll sew a hidden pocket in my jeans and keep cash in there and hide some in the car too.
I'm debating tucking some under the back of my phone but I don't know if the heat from the battery will damage it. Has anyone tried that with the new British money?
I have a saddleback wallet, but keep extra cash in my phone which has a leather case.
My everyday belt is has a zippered portion, I carry 3 20's in there all the time. Used to have a customer who carried 2 100's, 5 20's and 5 10's in his, in addition to carrying pocket cash. I almost never have cash on me, I live on my debit card.
Friend of mine got told by her mother that she should have at least 500 hidden somewhere at all times to have funds to leave any country ASAP if need be. Hearing this from a grandchild of someone that escaped the holocaust, that makes a lot of sense.
I've heard tales like this from many. Some survivors also advocated keeping a stash of loose diamonds -- no, not something out of the past! Very real, as these were easy to carry and conceal and could then be converted into cash or bartered as needed! Something tells me this once common bit of knowledge is just as valid today...

My grandparents, also children of the depression, used to always have a couple hundred in cash in the house, they had a small old school safe (probably weighed 150#'s) that they kept that and other valuable papers stored in. After they died, when I went through it, I found a bunch of old coins and other trinkets, my Dad assumed they were junk. I took a bunch of the stuff to a collector and had it looked at it, a few items were costume jewelry and not worth keeping, but the coins we found all were real silver, or old coins that were worth money to collectors and could be liquidated easily.
One reason the suggestion of having various common rounds of ammo, even if you don't own that caliber of gun, stashed someplace is a good idea. Great bartering tool.
