Sometimes I don’t want to carry my wallet around. At the beach, for example, when I have to leave my belongings unattended while I go for a swim. But I still need cash on hand for food, drinks, etc. So I turned an empty tube of lip balm into a secret cash stash. You could do the same with an empty stick of sunscreen, too.
Not only is the tube small enough to fit in my pocket, but it’ll also fool any potential thieves. I mean, who would steal someone’s used lip balm? — Jenny Stanley
A long nail works great for digging out any remaining bits of lip balm, and a cotton swab wipes away any waxy residue. To make sure the inside of the container is squeaky clean, dip the cotton swab in soapy water first. Let the tube dry completely before inserting your rolled bills.
