- #584647Yes I agree with the author that through piggy bank savings we had the immense satisfaction during the childhood that some thing has been earned in decent manner and that would be useful for emergencies. I had the habit of keeping the change during the shopping and put them in the piggy bank. Once my father was short of money and Immediately broke my earthen made hundi which is called piggy bank and found that 330 rupees of coins and notes and that was big amount in those days considering less cost of living. The main advantage of any piggy bank that there is always chance to put the money inside and we never have the chance to take it, unless and until it was forced to be broken. That makes us to avoid using the money inside the piggy bank and that attitude gives rise to more savings in future. One thing is sure those who are habituated to piggy bank saving they would save ever in their life.

- #584701This thread brings nostalgic memories.
Piggy bank may be the 'first bank' one comes to experience.
In my childhood the word 'piggy bank' was not popular in our place. But equivalent local language variants like 'kudukka', etc. were used. Those time piggy banks were made of clay or small tins improvised and sealed by parents.
As I had mentioned earlier in different contexts, I had started saving using Post Office Savings Stamps and then moved to Post Office Savings Bank account.
