Piggy Bank Fever: Start Saving Those Pennies!

Seriously folks, I am willing to bet that a lot of you have loose change in places that neve rsee the light of day: old wallets, purses, under sofas, in luggage, in your drawers, your car… And you think: “Eh, its just pennies.”  Well, what if you tossed those pennies into a cool pig.  Those “just pennies” , if you feel you don’t need them yourself, could buy meals for the needy, help an animal get adopted or contribute to charity.  Those “just pennies” add up.

Moreover, if you have a focus on the action of saving, you might just start setting aside some more savings yourself.  You start the flow, and the flow builds momentum. I’ve had a piggy bank turn into a big savings account.

Here is a roundup of my present-favorite piggy banks on Etsy.  They are so adorable, I want them all!

And yes, you can put your loose change  in a cup or a jar or a bowl but pigs are always a good thing!

Dana, I love the idea of having a piggy bank, but I think that I have the coolest non-piggy bank ever. Here’s a pic of it that I found online: http://cn1.kaboodle.com/hi/img/c/0/0/54/1/AAAADBsMmO0AAAAAAFQfZw.jpg?v=1245021188000

It’s a purple buddha and it serves as a reminder to me that “Change comes from within”.
