    Hidden/Emergency Cash in Car Helps this Forgetful Wife...

    Before I had kids and my own business, I had an awesome memory--I rarely forgot things.

    But now, everyone in my family knows that the observant and prepared spouse in my marital relationship is NOT me. Everyday I seem to forget something: keys, phone, credit card, ID, money, and, of course, flashlight, knife, and my Walther PPS.

    Tonight I was running one of our boys to another sporting activity and ran some errands while waiting. Not until I was at the checkout did I realize I had no cash. No credit cards. No money to do anything. Thankfully I had half a tank of gas ('cause I was in my husband's vehicle and not my own, yep, almost always on empty but never empty)

    Called the hubby up and asked if any money was hidden in his car, and BAM, hubby comes to rescue with $100.

    Thankfully I didn't forget my phone....now I just need to know where the cash is in advance--in case I forget my phone!

    My wife always keeps $20 in the glove box and encourages my daughters to do the same. More than once that has come in handy for them.

    I was raised quite poor (sadly) and now that I'm a great deal older and more successful, I find that even with credit cards and all that, I just feel better with some cash in my pocket---at least $100, though I just looked and found $235 in my pants pocket---I just feel better with some $$$ around. As for stashing some cash in a hidden location in our cars---I find 50 one dollar bills and another $150 in 5s, 10s, and 20s is a good idea along with at least two flashlights, a folding knife and extra batteries, a few water bottles and a small first aid kit, etc...

    This is why I always preload my pockets the night before. Then again, I'm also known to be so extreme as to keep a couple twenties each stashed in a shirt pocket, a boot and inside my tablet, not to mention two flashlights on my person and one in the tablet case, and enough heavy-duty pens to shank my way through a small cellblock. Multiple spare powerbanks for phone and tablet too. Spare mags for sidearm both on person and in briefcase/tablet case/laptop bag. (EXTREME conditions, AR15 pistol in briefcase as backup-gun.) Yes, I clank when I walk... LOL "Must remember to do something about all this pocket change soon, it's getting heavy..."

    Vehicles, most of my family never let get below a half tank, and of late my mother is so obsessive she tops off at three-quarters.

    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    I always think of my grandmother when this comes up. After she passed, my dad and uncles found about $12,000 hidden everywhere around the house. Behind pictures, in cans, books, etc. She hid it literally everywhere.
