About The Piggy Box

Our story with the Piggy Box began with our seven year old son, Jacob, who started a trash bin collection business almost two years ago. Each week, he brought in our neighbors’ trash cans after trash collection day. As his business grew, so did his income. It was quickly becoming apparent that his traditional piggy bank was inadequate. He couldn’t get his money, specifically the dollar bills, in and out of the piggy bank. We used everything from chopsticks to medical forceps to get those folded bills out! It made a mess – the coins would fall out as he tried pulling the dollar bills out. To make matters worse he had no idea how much money he had.  So began the idea of the Piggy Box.

We wanted Jacob to know exactly how much money he had so it had to be an easy-to-use money saving and organizing system. The Piggy Box is organized into three drawers: “SAVE,” “SPEND,” and “GIVE.” Unlike piggy banks or money jars, which we had tried previously, the drawers have removable dividers so kids can sort and organize their bills by denominations. There are separate compartments for coins and bills. There is also a companion app that helps kids track their money.

The Piggy Box is a fun and easy way for kids to manage money while teaching them sound budgeting principles and instilling ideas of “giving” at an early age. The Piggy Box is a new way to save money for today’s kids. It rethinks and reimagines how and what we teach our kids about important life principles. We hope you agree.
