You Aren’t Getting the Most Out of Your Piggy Bank Unless You Know This Trick

Are you getting the most out of your piggy bank? There’s a simple trick you can use to make sure you always know how much money is in your piggy bank, making it much easier to save up for goals.

Step 1:

Write a table on a notepad with columns for each currency denomination (i.e. “N” for nickel, “D” for Dime, etc.)

Step 2:

Each time you add a coin to the piggy bank, write a tally mark under it’s denomination on the table. Every five coins for each type, write a cross across the previous four marks. See this Wikipedia article for more info on how tally marks work.

Step 3:

Each time you remove a coin to the piggy bank, write the tally sideways.

Step 4:

You should now have the exact number of each coin type you added and removed from the piggy bank, making the math required to find out how much you have in it very easy.
