I love piggy banks! They hold such special childhood memories for me.  I remember shaking and feeling my piggy bank’s weight grow each time I placed coins in it.  Then breaking it open, to make that special purchase. What an exciting time!

In keeping with tradition, I gave piggy banks as a gift to some of my grandchildren (money included) for Christmas.  They were delighted!  Each grandchild wrote me telling what they planned to buy with their saved money.

I even bought myself a piggy bank this past summer.  She sits as a decorative piece on my desk.  Now, I ’ve decided that it’s time for her to be a functional decorative piece.

Several ideas are floating around about how to use the money that I save.  Will it be a gift for myself, gifts for others, charity or will it become a long term savings?

Ladies, how would you use your “piggy bank money“?

    • That is cute! happy

      I have a puter cat bank wearing a cowboy hat that my cuzzie gave me. I save my quarters in there. Then I have a Buddha bank that I bought at a thrift store and I put my nickels and dimes in. Was thinking of using that to buy lotto tickets or just wait till it gets full and decide what to do with it :)  

      I remember when I was young and had a pink plastic piggy bank. It was big and I filled it with pennies and when it got full, I wanted to use all my pennies to buy a gift for my mom and the only way to get the money out was cutting the bank cause there was no opening to it except for the part where the pennies went into. I was sad that I had to cut my piggy open but was excited to get the pennies out and count them...lol

    • I love piggy banks too, and I made a huge pink one of papier mâché a few years ago. It’s almost filled to the brim now, but as I am saving for a Motorhome I think it will take a few more pigs... happy

    • I love piggy banks too.  I still have my original.  I was lucky in that it had a rubber cork in the bottom.  I always saved my christmas and birthday $$ and any others to buy books.   Now I use that bank to save my collectible coins.  I’m not sure but I think I’ve got many $$ worth of bicentenial 50 cent pieces in it.

      I’ll try to find my camera and post some pics.
