Coins and Childhood Dreams


     
     

     
     I come from a simple family and as a child I have been taught by my mom to save. I remember going to school and paying for our ride using coins wrapped in white paper. Not a penny was wasted at home. We would gather our coins in our piggy bank and get all excited when the piggy got heavy. That would mean we would be entitled to buy a little something to reward us for saving. Mom and dad opened a kiddie account for us in the bank and I loved looking at the kiddie passbook with rainbow design. Saving and budgeting are skills that my mom has mastered through the years. 

     Whenever I see coins I remember what she told me a long time ago, "Do your best in your studies because it is the only wealth we could pass on to you." True enough because of mom and dad's hard-work I was able to graduate and become the healer that I am today. Thinking of days gone by and the history that each coin holds makes me want to collect the coins from my childhood years. Browsing www.goldeneaglecoin.com/ and seeing collectible coins and a wide range of numismatic products like gold and silver bullion makes me remember the three things needed when one aims to reach one's dreams- PERSEVERANCE, PATIENCE AND PRAYER.

  2. I also have the same situation when I was young. My mom always reminds me "mag aral kayo ng mabuti, yan lang ang tanging yaman na maipapangako namin sa inyo." Now I always remind my kid the importance of education and how it will help her to achieve all her dreams in the future.

  3. Ay doc, pareho tayo. :) Our parents taught us how to save at a very young age and we deposited our savings each time our piggy bank got full in Banco Filipino Kiddie Savers club. I think it was that bank that had those passbooks with rainbow prints. If my memory served me right.

    It's so nice to reminisce. It brings back happy childhood memories. :)

  4. Just like you, I have learned to save ever since I was a kid. That's probably why until now, I prefer to save than spend. Hubby on the other hand is on the other end of the spectrum lol.

  5. what an adorable little girl :) I remember my Dad told me to value education especially growing up poor :-) I never forget that lesson and I am glad that I made him happy and proud :-) I teach that to my kids too and they both love to save their coins as well :)

  6. Coins will always be associated with kids and savings. It is very helpful in training them how to start even on small scale.

  8. That's part of my childhood also! :D It was exciting when the piggy bank get heavier. But as a stubborn kid that I am, I get impatient easily and tend to spend the savings from the piggy bank. :D

  9. I maybe not a kid anymore but I still use piggy banks to save my extra coins every end of the day. It's something my late grandpa has taught me.

    Now, I can't help but smile reminiscing those memories I have with him.

  10. I always wanted to save for the future. I am a big fan of piggy banks. I remember when I was a kid I have a coin keeper made from powder container. Just like you, I am excited when it gets heavy.

    It's good to know also that banks are allowing kids to open their own account to encourage the idea of saving. It's cool and I guess it is safer that way.

  11. I definitely agree, that is also one of the best tips my mom gave me, to finish my studies and save for my future.

  12. In my case it was an empty family size Johnson's baby powder that was my piggy bank that my parents have used when we experienced a heavy flood in our province. Remembering your humble beginnings helps a lot in keeping both your feet planted on the ground.
