    Do you use them? (Pillows, Mattresses, Etc also count!)

    And if so, how much do you have in them?

    I'm very proud of my piggy bank, although there's only 3 Euro in it.

    I wondered what the hell this thread was about until I saw which forum it was in

    I used to have a piggy bank when my parents gave me pocket money, it was one I painted myself and I was so damn proud of it until my sister broke it The only physical money I really save now is for laundry and I keep that in an old Mickey Mouse Fantasia sweet tin, so I guess that counts.

    It does count! No doubt.

    I love saving money physically... oddly enough once it's on my bank account it's gone already. :<

    I was going to put every Euro I get into the piggy bank. But lately I don't spend so much (only onlline shops!) so I have none to put in there.

    Also: Do people only save coppers physically?

    Me and my housemate spent over an hour trying to smash hers at Uni last year. We didn't have a hammer and so tried throwing it at the floor repeatedly and hitting it with other hard things. Needless to say, our attempts were not successful...

    We then proceeded to pull EVERY note and coin inside it out through the slot using a pair of tweezers. Good few hours of procrastination there!

    Genuinely thought this would be a thread about student prostitution.

    But on topic, I have a tin of coppers, but I just can't be bothered to slice it open and count it all up. Maybe when I've got my dissertation deadline, I'll reach that level of procrastination...

    I have a piggy bank but it's only a small plastic money box, I just put all my shrapnel and 5ps in it while I'm at uni. I'm not really sure how much is in it though.

    I used to have a piggy bank when I was about 5-6, but then it broke

    Considering getting a new one just so I can store my coppers in there - I've got too many just lying on my windowsill and desk and on the mantlepiece in the living room
