I keep it in a big gun safe. Last month I sold a camper to a friend for 15k, when I tried to convert the check to cash you would have thought it was a billion and I was someone deserving of scrutiny. It was absurdly ridiculous.

Plastic has overtaken cash in almost all places .

I went to pay for recording a deed. It was $14.00 and they were not sure if they could break a fifty . Ended up getting it back and using small bills.

A few years ago I sold a used Tacoma. $15k. Guy paid via Wells Fargo cashiers check.

Went into a local branch to cash the check - I wanted to cash the check........... with cash. Literally, I wanted to cash a Wells Fargo check at a Wells Fargo, for....uhh.... CASH.

The old lady behind the counter got nervous. Started shaking. Like we were fixing to rob the place. Lots of questions. Lots of looks. Lots of stalling. A lot of looking up into cameras.

My wife got a bit irritated and the teller told her to step out of the building, which irritated me. Next thing I know, two employees are on both sides of me - like, security??

An HOUR later I had my cash. 3 or 4 months later I ended up in my new job. Rolling over my hefty 401(k) from Wells Fargo to Park Ave Securities was satisfying.

AZZHOLES.

Gold and Silver does not go up in value, and the government is likely to try to control it, same as cash. Longer the cash is buried, the less value it will have. I would invest in something worthwhile. Personally I'd do a money market account, and specify only companies that beat the S&P 500 consistently.

Fire proof gun safes are a joke, I don't care what the rating says. We had part of a town burn up here a few years ago. The clean up crews were making jokes about all the gun safes. Imagine the bed of coals from an entire house then throw your safe in there liked a potato wrapped in tin foil. What's left inside is carbon in its purest form.

I've made fake bird houses for "storing" various small items.

They are normal aside from the black screen that covers the inside of the entrance to keep birds and wasps from nesting.

No one ever pays attention to them.

Don't be a neanderthal deposit the money in the bank, transfer it to a brokerage account and invest it in the stock market. If you would have done this intelligently 6 weeks ago your $30,000 would be $40,000 by now. As of April 22 Apple is up 38% Carnival cruise is up 94%.

Putting paper money away for hard times is not the best idea. Convert the cast to scrap silver, 12 gauge shells and 22 RF ammo. Hard times paper is paper money is useless not even good a TP.

$30k of shotgun shells would be very unwieldy.

But why would you want to keep that much cash around.

Went to my local Credit Union (fairly large with about 4 branches) Need 7K to pay a contractor. I cleaned them out of 100's (5K) then cleaned them out of 50's ((2k). Large amounts of money are not kept on hand anymore.
Teller told me if it was 10K I wanted they'd have to report the withdraw to the Fed's.
Hiding cash has it's problems, after X number of years you forget, someone else finds it, it's lost in a fire or flood or tornado. Bank Safety Deposit Box is about as good as it gets.
