In the sofa??

In a suitcase??

One woman hid her money in a secret location — in the tape slot of an old VCR, and was surprised when her family got rid go the device without knowing what was inside.

The VCR sat on a shelf in the family's living room without playing tapes for years so her husband thought it was time to recycle it. Who can blame him, right? The family didn't realize what they tossed until mom came home from work later that day. They spent a few hours digging through giant bins of trash and found the VCR, with the cash still safely inside.
