- If you don’t set a goal, chances are pretty good that you will spend the money on other things and never have enough to reach your goal. Setting goals, writing them down, and sticking to them is a good way to keep yourself on track.

Then make sure you take your piggy to the bank to deposit it into your savings account. The interest on your savings account will help you reach your goal faster!
