I decided to use a mason jar to make a bank for me to save up for a new car in.  My car recently died and i am collecting bottles and change on the side to save a little extra.  I just painted the jar black so it would be harder for me to see how much is in there since i will take it out if i do.  But i wanted to leave a small area clear so i could see if i wanted to and i like the way money looks hehe.  I used tape and just made some stripes on one side of the jar.  I really like the way it came out.  It gets the job done at least. 

In the pic there is paper towels inside the jar so you can see the stripes better.

Ah, the old savings bank! I could do with a new one too and I really like the idea of only having a hint of how much is in there.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

What a good idea to paint it black so you aren't tempted! Best of luck with your savings.
