How do we use The Piggy Box piggy banks?
You’ve got money! YIPPEE!
How are you going to save it? That can be a tricky choice.
This piggy bank can help.
There are 3 or 4 slots (depending on the model) to help you figure out what
to do with your money. By using them, you can learn and practice SMART money habits. So let’s get started!
This is money for you to spend on things you want now or soon like a special snack or small toy. Money is limited, so spend it wisely by thinking about what you really want and need.
This is money you want to save to use later. It could be money used for something big like a bike or a computer game or for when something unexpected happens. You can set a goal and work towards it.
Do you want to get a gift for your best friend? Is there a charity or cause you really care about? Money in this section can really make a difference. You’ll feel good about helping others too!
Did you know your money can grow? Yup! You can put money in another business or in a special savings account.
We wish you success on your financial journey. You’re going to do great!

What percentage of money do you recommend we put into each section of the piggy bank?
The spend, save, give system is essentially a simplified budgeting strategy. Each time your child receives money, have them divide their funds into the three drawers or sections. One for spending, one for saving and one for giving away to others. You can decide what percentage of each dollar earned goes into each drawer.
We recommend a plan that looks something like this:
Spend — 50 percent
As adults, we don’t have the luxury of spending all our money on things we want. If kids get used to spending every penny of their earnings, there’s a good chance they’ll carry this habit into adulthood. The spend, save, give plan helps get them acclimated to the idea of spending only a portion of each dollar on things they want.
Save — 30 percent
Saving money teaches powerful lessons about delayed gratification and planning for the future. You can even make it exciting by encouraging your child to set a goal and track their progress each time they deposit money into their savings account. As they gradually achieve their goal, they’ll learn that some things are worth waiting and saving up for.
Give — 20 percent
Kids naturally love helping others. They instinctively understand that giving and sharing makes us happier — and financial wellness all about using your money in a way that contributes to your long-term happiness. When your child’s compassion gets triggered by someone in need, their share bucket empowers them to lend a hand and do some good in the world.
