This Little Piggy


Couldn't resist this cute vintage money box at my local thrift store. How could I say no to those eyes. I am trying to teach my daughter how to save money so this is a good start. It's much prettier than the plastic ones the banks give out don't you think?

  4. He is adorable! We also have a big pig and every time my daughter is good or keeps her plaits in at presschool she gets a 1.00 for her own spending. I can assure you I'm in no danger of going broke from our pig! Thank you Simone for your lovely comment on my writing. xx

  6. Oh Nice!! I had a smile reading your post.. I picked up a very similar but extremely colourful one for my 6 year old daughter last week... in the attempt of teaching her to save some money.

  8. Very sweet! And you are right about this being far better than the plastic ones that are so prevalent these days. I'm sure your daughter will love it!

  17. Okay...I have to ask you how much you spent on miss piggy?? Reason?? I went to the Mexican Market this week to get shrimp and they had the exact piggy banks, yes banks, for 1 US Dollar!!! I considered getting one, but little man was so freaked out by the live fish in the seafood section, so we had to leave! we are in-land people! Let me know if you want more!!! ;)KIM

  20. absolutely adorable!!! We have a rule, for every dollar my son gets (from any source) he puts $0.50 in savings and $0.25 in his piggy bank to save for something specific, and $0.25 he can spend.

    I hope it takes root in his brain!
