    Re: Do you still have a piggy bank?

    Hi Frh,

    I do not have an official piggy bank, however, I have an old fashion milk jar that I used to collect coins. All of my change throughout my day go into this coin jar. Eventually, I will dump the coins out, count them, and have $50-$100 saved. My piggy bank, again, is just for small change. My real savings account is in a proper savings account.

    Cheers!

    Aloha Frh,

    I don’t have an official piggy bank but I do have a jar that I keep money in for those just in case times when you need to have a little stash on hand. I guess mainly for like emergency situations. I guess I grew up thinking money is safest in a bank and it’s good if you can have it in an account where you gain a little interest. I don’t keep too much in my jar but enough where I could get buy for a bit if say all the computers were down and the only way to buy anything is with cash. I think piggy banks are a great idea to help kids learn the value of saving and have a visual to go with it. In fact, for a friend’s baby’s first birthday I was lucky enough to find an adorable piggy bank at Target and put money in it to be the start of her saving for college. I wish I had been taught the value and importance of saving money early on for the future. I now know how key it is to save instead of spend and have been working really hard to build up my savings.

    Thanks for the forum!

    Hey Frh,

    I guess I'll be the first to come out with it and say yes! I love my 'piggy' bank. It's really a ceramic turtle that I painted in one of those paint-your-own shops. It has a little slot at the top and a rubber stopper at the base. I love it so much because I made it in a way. I've had others that have broken but this one has stayed safe. I put all my coins in, and occasionally bills and try to forget they're in there!

    Have a good one!

    I used to have a piggy bank when I was growing up, through it was more of a plastic bear with a big pink head and a clear body to see inside that held a massive amount of coins inside! I actually got irritated with piggy banks when I got older because sometimes there would be a coin stuck in it somewhere, and fishing around for it was irritating! Now that I'm older, I don't have a piggy bank, but I hide my money in a safe and secure spot!

    Hey!

    I used to have a piggy bank when I was little. Then i started driving and would spend all my money lol so i no longer have one

    Thanks
    Have a great day!

    Re: Do you still have a piggy bank?

    Hey Frh,

    I no longer have a piggy bank but my 3 year old has one. However he isn't the best at spending. He will want candy or a small toy and we will say "We don't have money" and he will respond "I have money!" which sometimes he does and sometimes he doesn't. We are trying to teach him to save his money but that is not an easy task for a 3 year old.

    I actually rarely use cash unless my mom has given me some or when I used to babysit, my sister would pay me in cash. Most of my transactions, I complete with one of my debit cards.

    No piggy bank here unfortunately! lol Keeping the bills paid is difficult enough let alone saving money at the moment. Hopefully soon after getting my degree that will change!

    Have a great day, Frh.

    I have two. one is the emergency bank and the other one is for travelling. Each year the traveling bank is emptied out and I go out and enjoy my vacation.

    Re: Do you still have a piggy bank?

    I still have a piggy bank that I keep next to my bed to remind me of my constant faith to keep my child hood dreams and to reach those goals I always dreamed about. Thank you
