Saving money in a piggy bank

What happiness it is when you see that you child likes saving money more than spending? And what happiness it is to have a real piggy bank.

Kiddie Savings

As many of you know, Dindin likes saving money. When I started her saving in coin banks, she got sort of “addicted” to savings that whenever she finds coins lying on our desk or anywhere in the room, she would surely take them put them inside her coin banks.

Most of the time, she no longer asks us if she can keep the money. It has been like a natural thing for her–if there’s money, they should be kept or saved. haha

Insular Life Gives a Piggy Bank

And today, we got this new piggy bank as a gift from Insular Life. It’s so adorable! It’s so pink and cute and Dindin loves it so much! She keeps on stroking the body like it was a stuffed toy. hahahaha

This piggy bank gift was just timely because her bear coin bank is already full and her other Pooh bank is now almost full. So we started putting money on piglet tonight. Dindin has named her new piggy bank, “Piglet”. And despite my encouragement, she would not want any other name for it. haha She just loves this, as if she has found a pet to feed and take care of.

Prudence in a Child

Dindin is very prudent with money. She hardly asks us to buy her anything new, whether toys, food, or clothes. We realized, she would rather save her money than spend it. hehe

Thank you Insular Life for this lovely piggy bank! It’s so useful and well appreciated in our family.

    We should really start teaching our kids about the importance of saving, working and striving, and studying while they are still young. It’s so nice that Dindin takes delight in what you have imparted in her 🙂 You’ve done great sis 🙂

    Welcome to your new family Piglet! Mine is still inside the cabinet. The Pink Piggy still has space. She needs to eat more before my new piggy replaces her. 🙂

  3. That’s a good training for her. Children should be taught how to save.

  4. Cute piggy. Looks real! Hehe. It’s good to learn how to save early.

    I love that pink piggy bank. I can’t wait to receive mine too. Same as your Dindin, my little girl loves to save too. How I wish they will carry this attitude as they grew.

    so cute!!! kahit naman ako nagagandahan ako sa kay piglet..
    that’s one thing i want iris to learn..maging prudent..

  8. This reminds me of my old ceramic piggy bank when I was a kid. I made sure that every week I dropped whatever was left of my lunch money in it. Nowadays the Little Ones prefer their coin bank to be Disney characters. I miss my piggy bank.

    You do need a will. You do need your own Future Fund, Opportunity Fund, Retirement, or whatever you want to call it. Without life insurance, you can put away a great deal in your reserves & investments.
