    Smile I have some secret money, donít worry.

    How to call this kind of money?


    Usually husband put some money (perhaps, big amount ) into the secret place without knowing his wife.

    A: Hey, letís have a beer tonight, Iíll buy.


    B: Where did you get the money from?
    I donít think your wife gave you $ for beer?
    Let me buy it.


    A: I have some secret money, donít worry. ⓑI have some secret purse, don't worry.

    A: Hey, do you have some money put by in a stash? I need about $700?

    B: Sorry I had some but I was found by my wife and she took all of them.

    Re: I have some secret money, donít worry.

    Sometimes some money put by is referred to as 'under the mattress' (even if that's not where it really is): 'These days I'd rather keep my money under the mattress than put it in a bank.' But in the case you've been discussing with Anglika, just 'put by' is better.
