I’m so freaking excited.
I always wanted a piggy bank when I was a little girl. ALWAYS! I don’t know why but it just seemed like having a piggy bank would be so much fun. Dropping coins in a small slot? We could entertain children for hours. Plus, obviously I would keep better track of my money if I had a piggy bank. DUH! That’s science.
But I never got one.
Well a couple of months ago I saw Target selling them in all different colours and designs for only$9.99 + tax. It fill my little girl heart with joy! But for some reason $9.99 + tax seemed like too high of a price to pay for fulfilling childhood dreams. So I did not purchase one that week. I did promise myself that I would buy one the next time I got paid.
Well the next time I got paid came and went. And the next time. And the next. No piggy bank. My change kept being thrown in an old gift box and an old ceramic pot. Not to mention my back jean pocket. That is the perfect place for change. EXCEPT FOR A PIGGY BANK! Cause people steal quarters out of these places. That’s just life.
About a month ago, my travels led me once again to Target (as if I don’t go there every week) and I just so happened to be wandering around the store when I saw none other than the Piggy Banks. All of them, looking at me with such eagerness to be filled with my loose change. My littler heart skipped a beat and I picked out the one I wanted. But, as events unfolded, I did not purchase such a masterful bank.
Tonight I did though. I went to Target, walked straight back to the piggy banks, picked up the one that I had previously picked out, second guessed myself and picked out a new one, then purchased it for $9.99 + tax.
And magically enough, it was the most absolute fun dropping all my change into that small slot in the back of that pig and hearing it make a clink in its belly. I was so sad when I ran out of coins to drop in. Then I hid my pig, so no one could find it.
Recently I started to make goals that would require some hefty saving. Ugh, the things we do to fulfill our lifelong dreams and attain happiness. It’s disgusting. Anyways, part of my plan for saving this large sum was to take all my change in once a month to the Coin Star and then deposit the earnings into my savings. For this I would clearly need a piggy bank, because you have to spend money to make money. Anyways, I’m excited about this financial plan.
I would post a picture of my new-found brilliant financial friend, but then it would be easier for you to find it in my bedroom. And people steal quarters, that’s just life.
