A company has introduced a mattress-like wallet aimed at people who want to make sure they put their money in the safest place possible.

The Mattress Wallet is made of quilted material with waterproof latex interior pockets, which also should reassure those who worry about their bills getting soggy on rainy days. Although it looks like a mattress, the $20 product folds into a 3.5x4-inch wallet, making it easier to carry around than a queen-size mattress stuffed with hundred-dollar bills. However, like a real mattress, the wallet comes with a tag warning that it should not be removed under penalty of law.

The wallet also includes a supply of Mattress Wallet Deposit Slips, and the packaging provides various pieces of money-wise advice, including comparison graphs showing the Mattress Wallet vs. the Stock Market, and the Mattress Wallet vs. a Traditional Ponzi Scheme. It also includes other sound investing parables such as, “The money you put in is the money you take out.”

Like everything else, the Mattress Wallet is available via the Web. For more information, visit www.themattresswallet.com.
