SAVING MADE FUNNY: One of the little sadnesses of adulthood is that so many of us do away with the dresser-top bank. The piggy, the ceramic bear, the old-fashioned tin job. So we were happy to find this tin beauty -- and several more like it -- at Blue Q. Each tin bank comes with a stirring, look-forward message -- "I'm savin' up for a new beginning!" -- and an easy slot for your copper. SAVING IS NOT EXPENSIVE: The bank is $7.99, via Blue Q.
