Love. 
Is there someone out there that doesn't like piggy banks?
It kind of reminds me of being a little girl...when I was really excited to save up $5 or how much ever jelly shoes or leopard print slap bracelets used to cost back then...

And then there's this toothbrush thing that would probably be like my favorite possession - Can you imagine all the fun to be had just by looking at your toothbrush? I'd show everyone...I'd bring it out at dinner parties and to sleepovers and people would get so tired of seeing my toothbrush! (but I wouldn't)

That piggy bank is a great idea. I always hated how I couldn't see how much was in them! And I never got the money out because I didnt want to break them!!

Absolutely! I still have my piggy bank from when I was a little girl! It's filled to the top with pennies from then too! And toothbrushes... I would go nuts over a new one! Still do!
Fabulous posting!

Awww...this reminds me. My favorite and only brother used to collect little piggy banks in the shape of pigs. Colorful pigs in all sizes, lined up on his dresser! Just like a little family!

ching said...

i have a piggy bank made out of wood. but i cracked it open a long time ago. haha

Buckeroomama said...

Ack, transparent piggy banks might be the end of me with my kids, I think. They'd forever be asking me for coins to watch the piggy bank fill up! :)

style'n said...

yes adore unique and fun piggy banks. We gave one to my daughter so she can start filling it up!

Cara said...

very cool! I wonder where my monogrammed piggy bank went :/

Nicola said...

Piggy banks I love. :)

andrea said...

that toothbrush is awesome! there's a really pretty toothbrush i saw at a whole foods a few years ago and i'm still kicking myself for not getting it. i haven't been able to find it since. and the funny thing is, i was in college at the time and convinced myself not to get it because i didn't need to spend what little money i had on a $5 toothbrush just because it was pretty and i would never use because it was so pretty. stupid responsible me :P

Lenore @ Lather. Write. Repeat. said...

J and I have a piggy bowl and it's for our annual vacation. We even throw bills in there when we have them and when we went to Florida we counted out over $500 (obviously we worked at it but if you do it often you don't miss the cash so much!). Love the piggy bank!

I love that bank...especially because you can see it growing!

à la Modest said...

That toothbrush stands on its own! I love those :)

Nikki said...

I'll be the person who dislikes piggy banks. Whenever you go to pull out a handful (who's saving? not me!) your hands get so gross and dirty. That's why I don't like to keep loose change. I know. I'm strange. You don't have to tell me ;)

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Oooh I love that piggy bank!

Stephany said...

That piggy bank is too cute! I really want it...we use an old soda bottle right now to keep our pennies. Hehehe. :)

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

i'm pretty sure if my hubbers sees this post, we'll be purchasing one of those toof brushes. :P

its simple love said...

jelly shoes and leapard print slap bracelets, we would have been best friends if we lived hear each other I am positive. That tooth brush is the best! I love how it stands up on it's own. I have when mine touches the counter.

The toothbrushes are really cool, but the piggy bank holds my attention. It's a great idea to see how full your piggy bank gets over time!
