this little piggy


Steven leaves piles of coins all over the house. I don't know why he does it, maybe his pockets feel heavy all of a sudden when he's walking through the dining room, or maybe he thinks 2 quarters and a dime will come in handy one day if they are on the coffee table, who knows? But it drives me crazy!
So, I bought him this Pig Bank designed by Harry Allen. (important note: no pig was harmed in the making of this bank.) It's creepy and weird, but for some reason I love it. Plus it's huge, so it'll hold a lot of coins.


Oddly, my favorite part about it is the packaging it came in. Is it totally weird that I desperately want to keep it?

What a thoughtful gift. And it's an adult's piggy bank which is pretty neat. I understand the packaging thing--maybe you could make something out of it?

I've been thinking the same thing. I just have to figure out what to make!!!

My husband does the same thing with change and it is so annoying! I love the piggy bank. That is going on my Christmas list.

I totally need to do this! My boyfriend has TONS of coins in all his jean pockets because he always pays for lunch with cash. So whenever he folds his jeans up the coins spill out everywhere and it drives me nuts!
