Here are some cool money banks/piggy banks for kids that will start inculcating the habit of saving money right from an early age.
The art of saving is dying, with many people today living beyond their means, because of which many face financial problems later on.
It’s important for kids to learn to start saving right from an early age, and it’s important that parents inculcate this good habit in kids.
These piggy banks are the perfect tool for doing that.
As a child, my parents would give me spare coins and small currencies (notes) to put in my piggy bank. Every few months, I would open the piggy bank to see how much I had collected, and my parents would buy me a nice gift (a toy) using that money.
I would then repeat the process.
My parents were obviously happy with my saving habit, and I feel that every parent should try to inculcate this habit in their child.
