Backpacking Tips TV: How to Hide Money Whilst Backpacking
This clip demonstrates a way to hide money inside something in your backpack.
Obviously, a big fat permanent marker may draw attention (no pun intended) as it would probably seem an odd thing to be carrying around backpacking, but if adapted slightly – by maybe using something like a non-clear ballpoint pen instead – it has the potential to become a nifty emergency money holder.
If a thief did get into your backpack and went looking for goodies then a crappy pen knocking around in the bottom of your backpack could be easily overlooked in the hunt for money, cards or other valuable items.
Something this small could easily accommodate a tightly rolled $100 bill which would be enough to get by on for a few days should you somehow get parted from your other money and cards.
