Non-Piggy Bank for Wise Savers

If you aren’t much for cliches or the expected decorating themes, you may love the option of a non-piggy piggy bank for your child’s room.

Check out this white owl from Z Gallerie ($12.99). You’d never even guess it was a coin bank, and it’s sophisticated enough to hold up on the family room bookshelf. The dull white finish is almost graphic and really jumps from a dark background.

We used to try to fatten pigs, but in lean times maybe the better metaphor is to spend our coins wisely.
