…you want to keep in touch with someone far away
Q. and what is the point of having a piggy bank if you aren’t going to save money?
…you want to invest or save for something
A. there is no point to having either if you’re not going to commit to sticking stamps and collecting coins. but if you’re a type a (the adventure type) maybe you’re able to think outside the box.
…make a pal bank!
do it yourself- the pal bank
- widen the coin slot on an old piggy bank or give an old shoe box new purpose. cut it a hole.
- instead of mailing letters to a faraway friend, deposit something (anything!) in the pal bank everyday.
- when the bank is full- deposit it:
-send the bank to your pail in the mail!
– present the bank to your pal in person when you visit each other next!
