Pantry Money Safe

Leave out enough change and cash in a piggy bank or jewelry box, or any other normal hiding spot to make a would be burglar believe he's found your stash.

Then take a tin can of something normally found in your pantry in multiples and use one of those can openers that open the lid from the side of the can.

Wash it out, stuff in the big money and put the lid back on.

Put back up in the pantry. Hopefully, no one is going to go looking in your pantry for money, especially if he/she has found your "stash" already.

This is such a great idea and I am going to make one of these.

Just don't give that can away if you donate to a food drive!!

Thankfully the lightness of the can and the fact that the lid will come off should help from that mistake! :)

That's why I chose to use one of my often used cans. I'm more likely to give away the food that I haven't used, not the food I use almost daily.
