Creative Piggy Bank Ideas

June 25, 2005

bank in shape of girl with pig tailsOK everybody, collect all those piggy banks and pack them away in a box and put them in the attic. My house has only been broken into twice in my lifetime. The first things that go are the piggy banks. find a replacement now. When you cornstarch runs out, use the container for your coins and ones. How about an oatmeal box? Larger bills can be hid in back of picture frames. That will get your imagination going. I don't want to give out all the secrets. I have some real doozies. I even used my drip pan on my refrigerator once.

Paperweight - fill with pennies and place atop papers to keep them from flying away.

Doorstop - a coin-filled bank in front of a door will prevent it from blowing shut.


String dispenser - place a small ball of string inside the bank and slip its tail through the slot.
