"Oh I forgot all about that!" ... "She Never Told Me About Hiding Money!"
It happens more often than you may think. People tuck money away and forget about it.
Perhaps it is 1967 "Expo" bills pressed into the family bible, or "mad money" taped to the underside of a dresser drawer, or bills hidden in the bottom of a plant pot, or silver dollars loaded into the hollow base of a statue. We have seen every one of these situations!
Sometimes family may be actively looking for money, but more often it is a surprise find. It was a bittersweet thrill to find a stack of Savings Bonds that were never cashed tucked in with some old letters, and at times disappointing not to find the suspected $$$ hidden by a woman with dementia. Be sure to flail pages of books, feel the inside dark corners of dressers, closets.
Use a flashlight like a spotlight - you never know what you may be showcasing!
