adjective – Afrikaans
Southern African slang meaning pleasing; nice
Are you much of a saver? Are you good about keeping your extra change aside for a rainy day? I know I am TERRIBLE at this, but this is also due to the fact that I hardly ever draw actual cash & then have to dig around in my change purse to tip the car guards & so on. However with recent life events I realised the importance of saving a little & putting money aside for those times when I want to spoil myself.
When I was younger I had a bright pink piggy bank that had a special spot in my bedroom. I would do extra chores around the house to get a silver coin, or would proudly add my pocket money into the container & then take it all out so I could count it up & see how close I was to treating myself to something I really wanted. It helped teach me the value of money, & also that I didn’t have to always ask my mum for assistance. She was a single mum & had enough on her plate without me nagging her for a new doll that I HAD to have…
When I came across this gorgeous small business I was so excited! Do we truly remember the value of money? And are we teaching these values to children, or do we simply spoil them rotten so when they are out in the real world they get a complete shock? Sometimes we all need a small reminder to find the good & happiness in life, but still put aside the small change for “just in case”. And these piggy banks will certainly encourage this, whilst forming beautiful decor in your house!
