Where do you stash your cash?
There are a few different places you can hide your money. But some are better than others and in light of the recent news, definitely better than your farm where your $4million could get legs.
If you’re thinking of keeping your hard-earned cash safe, here are some of the well-known places to NOT stash anything.
- Under a mattress. If you’re going to hide your money under a mattress, make sure you use an old one—you don’t want anyone thinking you’re trying to get rid of something gross!
- In an envelope under the floorboards. This is one of the most popular places people hide their cash. Just make sure nobody else knows about it!
- In a book. Place the money between pages or in between book covers—it’s easy to forget about if you don’t read much! You can spend all day reading and no one will suspect anything!
Amanda did exactly just that and found a lovely surprise!
Maurice and Angel heard of the best places you’ve stashed your cash and this could possibly help any future would-be farmer who has a few foreigns lying around to stash its way in places no one would ever think of looking.
- Siegfried had a simple and ingenious idea!
- Kelly shared an oldie but a goldie.
- Now here’s some solid financial advice. Give the money away. By away, we mean pool it together. Felicity explains.
- Terra has a heavy-weight solution to keeping your cash safe.
Now that you know of the good places to stash your cash, Agatha had one question.
Break away from the boring and mundane and tune into the Smile Drive with Maurice and Angel. Every weekday from 3 pm to 6 pm.
What’s the Oldest food item in your pantry or kitchen?
Maurice and Angel went in search of the oldest item of food in your kitchen cupboard. Sounds easy enough, right? The answers left Maurice and Angel dumbfounded on the Smile Drive as they went in search of the person who has the Oldest food item in their kitchen for the Wall of Fame.
We won’t be surprised if that butter has grown fingers and started talking asking you to “FEED ME!”
Aloycious sent in this pic of his item
What about soup that was bought before lockdown started?
We know that you can freeze soup but if it’s been in the freezer for over two years?
Alan shared the oldest food item in his pantry and it dates back to 2005!
Maurice and Angel heard of the oldest food colouring. Food colouring is so old, it’s married with two kids old!
That would easily take the cake but that didn’t beat the oldest food item in the Kitchen. Nades submission is years ahead.
Wow! That’s over 50 years old! Nades sent through some photos of the bottle of Uozo.
Tune into the Smile Drive every Wednesday for the Wall of Fame at 4 pm.
Renewing your car’s license disc is not for the faint of heart. Not only do you need an intestinal fortitude but also patience the size of Jupiter, especially when you’re pulling up at a traffic department and you see a queue that could give The Great Wall Of China a run for its money.
Angel shared her troubles with renewing her car license disc which turn out, it’s a circus if you don’t patience by the bucket loads.
Sometimes you go out into the world to do the right thing, only to find out, your proof of address is inadequate for whatever reason.
Many came forward to share their renewal woes with Angel, but anonymously.
Another anonymous individual came forward. Here’s their story.
The next story from another anonymous individual almost rendered Maurice and Angel speechless! Listen!
Now it’s not all doom and gloom as someone shared their hack of remembering to renew their car’s license disc.
That’s something to remember. Angel and Maurice however had a few questions that needed answering and called Trevor Blake, Director of Revenue Department of the City of Cape Town. You’ll wanna listen to this.
No finally, who’s story was Wall of Fame worthy? Well, another anonymous shared a story of their sibling whose license expiration date goes so far back, if the car was a child, it would be a teen!

In-door gardening has seen a surge in recent times, thanks largely to the pandemic and lockdowns. No with the backing of science, the list of benefits is long, so much so, some have started growing their own “farm” or even a “rain forest”!
With that in mind, Calling all Doctor Greenthumbs! Maurice and Angel went in search of the person with the most in-house plants and have their name added on the prestigious Wall of Fame! By most, we mean more than two spekboom named “Diddle” and “Daddle” and micro-greens of basil growing on your window sill.
Trevor shared with Maurice and Angel about his “jungle”.
If you’re wondering how Trevor is able to keep track of all of his 30 plants? Simple! He uses “Picture This” which is available on Android.
Not to be outdone, Cathy and Anny shared the number of house plants they have in their home.
That’s a lot! However, Ilse stepped up to the plate after counting her houseplants to share how many she has with Maurice and Angel.
In the words of Miley Cyrus, “I came in like a wrecking ball” and wrecking she did. Genevieve has an unfathomable amount of plants in her apartment. By unfathomable, we mean close to Amazon rain forest unfathomable!
Genevieve was kind enough to share this pic of her apartment and have to say, it does look amazing!
While this week’s Wall Of Fame was for the Most indoor plants, we have to give an honourable mention to Kevin.
And an honourable mention to Renier, who bought this beauty below, in 1996 when he moved into their house in Vredehoek.

How do you disperse protestors? New Zealand authorities turned to the sound of music, specifically the music from Los Del Rio’s Macarena and Barry Manilow.
Things didn’t go to plan as Angel shared how James Blunt came to the rescue. How? A simple tweet!
— James Blunt (@JamesBlunt) February 12, 2022
Fast forward a few hours later, it appeared the singer-songwriter’s offer was accepted, with his 2005 chart-topping hit ‘You’re Beautiful’ being played over the loudspeaker.
This prompted the search for The Voice on Wall Of Fame. All Cape Town had to do was just sing James Blunt’s “You’re Beautiful” and boy did they come through!
If you didn’t know who Anezwa is, now you do!
Anandie Agenbag came through with her two boys with their rendition.
Mom Liana and 7 year old Julie shared their duet.
Not to be outdone, Nikki and Terri also sang along!
Here are the voices that sang James Blunt, “You’re Beautiful” on the Smile Drive with Maurice and Angel.
Eugene, producer of the Smile Drive was tasked into creating a song with all of the voice notes. This is what it sounds like. Remember, this is a “draft” and not the final audio.
What do you think?
