For those of us with parents or loved ones who have a history of hoarding money at home, it is a good idea to sit down and have an honest discussion about the risks of doing so and help them set up a bank or money market account where they can safely keep their savings and have the money continue to work for them as hard as they worked for the money :)

Lemme know how that works out for you. The best I got from my 80ish mother was the locations of the cash stash. There's money in accounts but I would bet there's probably a couple thousand around the house.
