No matter what social class people come from, they always feel in need of something that is realizable, but costs a lot of money. The reason is that there is always something we can not afford ourselves. Actually, this is not such a bad thing. Not being able to pay for something should work as an incentive for people to invest more efforts in their jobs, take challenges, and develop themselves professionally. However, it is not often that we get to know people who manage to make all their dreams come true. Most people have to save all their life. That is why so many different books were written and psychological tricks invented to help people save the money. We shall give you another piece of advice - probably, one of the most brilliant ideas is to have money boxes, from which you can only get money by breaking them into pieces.
Nowadays, there are thousands of types of money boxes. Piggy money boxes are most popular in many countries. Those piggy money boxes can be of different colors and shapes - they can represent piggy-astronauts and piggy-home keepers. There are also special money boxes, like wedding money boxes that were created to help the just married couples save for important events in their lives. There are also national money boxes, no name just a few of a kind. Money boxes can be ceramic or china; however, they are so fragile, that it does not pose a problem to break them accidentally..
Lots of wise articles and voluminous books were written by experts to help people figure out how to save money. One of the most interesting recommendations is to calculate how much money you have to set aside to have your dream come true - and save fifteen percent of your earnings. Should you win a lottery, inherit something or just get your salary, put off fifteen percents - that is the way to save a million.
Whether you know what you are saving for or you have not decided yet but still want to have some money in store, look for the most beautiful and cute money box you can think of. Do not hurry; try hard to find something really gorgeous and delicate. It is best if your new money box should be expensive. What is strongly recommended is that you should find a money box, from which there will be only one way to get the money: break it into small pieces. Spend time and money getting the new masterpiece money box, and you will feel sorry to break it each time you need the money. This is an effective psychological tool.
Do not think that money boxes were designed only for children saving for a new toy. If you are already a grown-up, you can substitute coins for a more significant currency, such as one-hundred-dollar-banknotes. Just imagine: saving one hundred-dollar-banknote every month and putting it into a money box will make it a thousand and two hundred dollars in store in a year.
So, it is understandable that money boxes are little tricks that we play on ourselves. We can easily put those hundred bucks in a book shelf or into a credit card account. However, soon you will be tempted to spend it on something less significant though still desirable. It looks like cheating is inevitable, which only explains why we need so many cute and sweet money boxes!
