Here's a link to access Shirley's. Not the one you're referring to but sounds similar.
Note: Link deleted as it was referring back to this thread.

I found this poem from long ago it said to print it on cardstock. There wasn't any author on it. If someone knows the author let me know and I'll attach it.
I'm a little "kitchen safe"
to put upon your shelf,
where you can hide some secrets
known only to yourself.
I'll keep your rings or money
should robbers come your way,
or maybe keep those extra coins
for a rainy day!

This is the directions I have for the kitchen safe. , Use a pint jar, and some sort of dried food. I use a 14 bean mix because it is colorful, but you could use rice or anything else. Dump handful of beans in jar bottom next center empty toilet tissue tube on beans. This tube should have square of foil covering bottom and molded over sides a little before setting into jar Push down till top would just clear lid. Before next step I set a large cork on top of tube. you may figure another way to accomplish next step. After covering top of open tube fill jar with beans to within 1/2 inch of top. I then put hot glue around top of inner jar and top of tube and lay a length of large cording on beans to keep them from falling out when inverted. Some people cut a donut shaped ring of cardboard to place over end of tube and cover beans. Next put on lid. I tie raffia around the neck and glue on a little sunflower. I print this poem on cardstock and tie it onto neck of jar.

Would it work to use a empty perscription bottle in the center? I get quite a few of the larger ones with my 90-day refills and that would be a good way to recycle them. One might also slide a pill bottle inside of the toilet paper tube so you could easily remove it and your cash or valuables without disturbing the beans
