I saw a DIY show recently. They were taking apart a wall and found $10,000 still with a bank wrapper stashed in the wall. Whoever stashed it there, long ago, never saw it again. Not a good place.
dont go out if you are pessimist <br />
stash it up the ATM or <br />
give it to the needy
If not in a bank... In a safe, at home.
Actually... I should have said Credit Union... I've used one now for over 15 years... happy with it... I still call it "The Bank."
