Based on the economy, we all need something economy-friendly to hold our money. But is the music really necessary?

this is brilliant, I think I have a few of these lying around because my grandma loves to get them for me and I know they are worth saving, but for what!?

this was a totally awesome idea! i was on vacation a while ago and some kids stole 50 bucks out of my unattended wallet while i was in another room, if i had this theyd probably be like AHHH and drop in and run away!!! oh well! instead i put it in my duct tape wallet!

I saw this in Popular Science...actually I think they did a better job of describing it. Nonetheless I think it's a nifty idea. I'll add it to my collection of other nifty ideas to try out sometime.
