Probably not a good idea to hide it
where a burglar would expect to find it.
There are a lot of products that are supposed to help you hide your money from home burglars - like prestained underwear, for instance.(See A most disgusting place to hide your money and How to hide anything.)
Where does a real burglar say you should hid your money?
A burglar says you have to understand a burglar's motivations:
- Steal your money and valuables
- Get out of house quickly
That's the same theory used by people who have dummy wallets full of a little money for a mugger to steal, and hide their real wallet.
If you do leave money lying around, it has to be an appropriate amount. You can't live in a million dollar home and expect a thief to be satisfied with twenty dollars.
If you want to hide valuables, try a kid's room. It's an unlikely spot, and since the room is usually cluttered, it's not easy to do a quick search.
