Piggy banks were famously used to store and save money, but over time a lot of people have lost this tradition.
Thing have changed over the past decade because the economy is so bad that piggy banks are becoming popular again. A few pennies that you save over the year might come in handy when your birthday comes or when the holidays are here. Piggy banks don't necessarily hold a lot of money but the little that you save can help you tremendously in a time of need.
Everyone should start to use piggy banks again and stop throwing away that extra change that is left in your pockets. Don't forget to teach your children to start using them too.
