Anyone else have a dementia "stasher" of pills, jewelry, or money? What crazy places has it been found in?

My mom is a master stasher. I have found wedding ring in the q-tip box and yesterday looked for 24 hours a new rx of hers. I spend lots of time digging in the trash can. Found stuff in sugar bowl and pinned to her clothes in closet. What about you? Come on and give me a laugh!

Half dollars filling a rusty coffee can amidst old paint and misc cans. Jewelry in a bandaid box, paper cash in the middle of newspapers. This is why I am clearing out the house myself.

When my in laws moved into anew home with BIL, SIL put me in charge of tossing/sorting all her bathroom stuff. I found coins in tons of old medicine bottles! I mean like 20! I dumped all the change into a regular jar, and tossed the medicine bottles. Hope that's all i tossed.. LOL

I just moved my folks into care (FINALLY!!) and have been going through the house. In moms “known” hiding places I found over $900 in cash, then another $50 in a little jewelry purse in the back of a cluttered drawer.

Just don't get it..
If it's hidden, and I can't find it.....
What good is it?
I think that I need to plan ahead a little, for when the housekeeper comes.

Thrilled people are finding money. I just get snotty paper hankies.

Mom stole all my father’s important papers and would move the hiding place around. And would run interference if I, while searching, was getting ‘warm’ (getting closer) to the hiding place.

I’m sorry but being in a large house looking for things you desperately need to get the demented one proper care is not funny. Nor is the ‘Easter egg hunts’ my mom would take us on!

My mother didn’t “stash”, she flung. If she didn’t want something, she’d fling it out the door of her room! The aides often told me they had to be careful walking past her room because they never knew what would come flying out her door!
