I know it’s not really that cool to talk about money publicly, but I have no problem telling you that I’m not rich. I’m not even in the neighborhood of “comfortable”. Anything I have, I worked my butt off to get. And since I’m also not great at saving my money unless there’s a goal that I can see, I decided I needed to invent a piggie bank that would help me save up for something that’s very important to me: travel.
First, you need to start with a metal ruler, an X-ACTO knife or utility blade, a roll of clear tape and a paper, or cardboard globe. My method of conversion will not work for glass or metal globes. Begin by identifying the seam in your globe, (typically running along one of the longitudinal lines somewhere in the Pacific Ocean of your globe) and choose any other longitudinal line as your starting point. (Cutting along the seam could weaken the overall integrity of the globe.)
Unless you are forgetful about closing the door on your new travel piggie bank!
Place your globe somewhere that you will see it every day, so that you have a constant reminder to hold onto your dollars!
And when you are ready to buy your plane ticket, you can EASILY remove all of the money you saved in your globe with the aid of a bent wire coat hanger! No need to smash this piggie bank to retrieve your funds- it can be used over and over again.
