Currently Looking For - A Coin Bank

I keep having a lot of coins. That's because I always stress out when it's time to pay, worried by the fact that I could take too much time looking for my change and everyone in the line would hate me for being so slow. Yes, I have to admit it : I'm a worrier.

When I started looking for a coin bank, I soon realized that a nice one is not easy to find. So, in case you ever need one too, I thought I'd share the results of my treasure hunt. What do you think? Do you like some of them? I personally like all of them, but I find them a bit expansive - isn't that ironic?

Creative - Ceramic Piggy Bank - Handmade by ArtMind - $53

Thanks for reading and have a lovely day!

    I use a metal vase that sits in my foyer on a table that has photos in frames around it. Its a pretty vase from restoration hardware so it always looks nice, its dark so you cant see in it, its easy to take to the bank to the coin machine and empty since it just pours out, and when everyone walks in the door they can just drop their change instead of me finding it all over the house... ok, I still find it all over the house!

  9. Haha, yeah, the duell savings one looks nice. Seeing it move around with change would be pretty fun. You'd probably hear the coins shaking around inside that bank.
