Money saving can be a struggle. I, personally, have been struggling with this for a long time and still I struggle with it. I have read so many online articles on how to save money, but the struggle lingers on.
Then I got the idea of buying a piggy bank because I saw a really lovely one during one of my many visits to a Tiger Store.
Unfortunately, I did not get the exact one I saw.
Fortunately, I got a better one weeks after.
Why I bought it?
Apart from the fact that I want to start saving the old school way, I bought it because of two main reasons: its uniqueness and colour. Also, the artwork on it is absolutely gorgeous; can you tell that it is ceramic? No? Hehe.
Where I bought it?
At a charity store, Vincent’s Living, in Drogheda, Ireland.
I can’t deny I love to window shop. For me, window shopping just feeds my heart with things I could buy in the future and things that I would never buy. Most importantly, it is therapeutic.
What happened on that day?
Something interesting happened to me on the day I bought this item. When I left the store, I went into another store to window shop, and an Irish man walked up to me to say that the Holy Spirit directed him to pay for the things I bought in the store. This left me dumbfounded.
I got this vintage item and a book (4 euro).
I must also add that this was a first-time experience and I was intrigued. Extremely intrigued. We got talking about God and our personal lives and then he asked ”Is there something bothering you”.
We got talking more about God and a little about our personal lives, and then he asked ”Is there something bothering you”.
The Nigerian in me said ”NO, DO NOT SHARE THIS WITH HIM. HE MAY BE 419.”
The other side of me said ”JUST SHARE. HE WILL PRAY WITH YOU.”
I listened to the other side of me and shared what has been bothering me since the beginning of the year. We prayed. He then reminded me of God’s love and quoted Jeremiah 29:11:
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Guys! I will not forget this experience in this lifetime, and I will continue to share it with everyone who cares to listen! Plus, this item will be passed on to my children, who will pass it on to their children and their children’s children because I absolutely love it.
It was, indeed, a special day for me.
Thank you for reading, guys!
Please share with me your thoughts and how you save money, I am willing to learn a thing or two.
See you soon,
