8) Keep Some Money in an Empty Chapstick Tube

When you are on the road, it is important to have money with you, for fun and for emergencies. But depending where you are, carrying around funds can be risky. Some places are known for having pick-pockets. Therefore, it may be wise to keep at least some of your money somewhere other than your wallet. One great technique is to put it in an empty Chapstick tube. You can remove the inner mechanisms and roll up some bills inside. Thieves are unlikely to take it, targeting change purses and wallets instead. Additionally, you can separate your money into several different tubes. This can ensure you have some money even if one tube gets taken. This can also be useful if you want to distribute money to your various family members or friends.
