Money for my Piggy Bank!!!

I’ve created a piggy monster!

Last week I was in Portland visiting my twin sister and her family. When I noticed a handful of coins in my pocket I asked my three year old nephew if he had a piggy bank. My sister sheepishly admitted that he didn’t have a piggy bank.

She had her own piggy bank from Denmark out of reach from when he was younger. She pulled it out and said that she could use it in the mean time until they found one of his own. He caught on quickly and was asking for more money until we couldn’t find any more change in the house.

I gave a lesson about piggy banks and told him that when his dad comes home from the office he should ask him for coins for his piggy bank to save for college. Since his dad has his own coin jar on his dresser I figured all he’d have to do is smile to get him to cough over the coins.

As it happened my brother-in-law was in DC on a business trip. My nephew then proceeded to ask him for coins for his piggy bank every time they talked for the rest of the week.

Now that I’ve created a monster I think I’ll have to also be a good auntie and find a good piggy bank for him!

Keep in mind that most things that apply when you are three are still relevant as adults – don’t forget to feed your piggy bank and ask for more money! It will pay out in dividends for your wealth (over time, of course).

Happy Savings,
