Step 1: For Money in Toothpaste / Shaving Cream / Face Wash TUBES

Make sure
1.Your tube is near medium to full. 
2. and isn't  totally transparent.
3.Should have a opening large enough to allow the roll of money through
4. Longer than the width of your currency note
5. Try not to use very expensive products whose wastage would bring tears to your eyes.


1.Roll the money tightly.

2.Wrap it up in cling film ,Make sure,its totally tight and covering your money.

3.Squeeze out a little paste from your tube, brush or shave if you want , haha,

4.Push the money roll/cylinder in the tube.

5.Put the cap on, and put it in your toilet kit. Even if your pocket gets picketed(Heaven Forbid), you wont be fully broke :)

6. When you need the money, just squeeze up from the bottom rolling the tube,that should put a pasty money rod in your hands.
and if it gets stuck , just cut the bottom crimping away.But that step would render the tube useless .You could switch the stuff to another jar or something later.

Step 2: For Diamonds in the Hairgel/skin Products/handwash Dispensers

Similar Steps as for the tubes, but you cant cut the bottom away that easily :)

Make sure
1.Your jar/container is near medium to full.

2.Empty out a little stuff from your

4.Push the packed object in the jar/container

5.Level it with your finger(if your jar contains something solid,like hair gel or something,so that it doesnt look unusual)
