Absolutely, I always keep some money in the house for emergencies, but that is because I don't use a credit card - now you can use a credit card for almost everything from booking tickets to paying hospital bills so may be it is different for those who use credit cards.

Yes a credit card is one way of paying that is simple.I do have a couple of them but I still prefer cash.I suppose I am from the old school and somehow will stay with some of my old habits.

I have a little stash for emergencies. But not so much that if someone found it I would be financially hurt. Most of my money stays in the bank.

Most of my money is in the bank,but as I am making large sums of money everyday I always have huge amounts of money in my house all the time.

well, I think it is a difficult question. I guess if you had a safe, for emergencies, like if it was a weekend and couldnt get to the bank, or whatever, but my grandparents had $2,000 saved in their house in a safe and someone stole it, and there is nothing you can do about it really. So, it wouldnt be the best choice.

Yes I guess over the weekend would be okay,but uh oh now that I hear about your Grandparents plight,I think even one night is scary and thought provoking. Thanks for your response.!!!!lol!!!!!

It would not be wise. The best place for your money in the bank. It costs more to save it in your house, buying a safe, getting a combination, also an alarm system. Besides there is the interest rate you get in the bank. Only keep enough for necessities.

It's not a crime but I think I would prefer to keep my money at the bank. YOu don't get interest if you just keep the money under your mattress
