Her son decided to recycle an old VCR. But he didn't know she had $6,000 stashed inside it! After contacting the recycling company, workers started to dig through about 12 tons of stuff.

Several hours later, they finally found the lost treasure. Someone at the recycling company advised, "Please keep it in the bank, not in a VCR." (laughs) "Yes, thank you."

Instead of old electronics, the family now says they'll go for something a little more practical -- maybe a safe.
