In these tough economic times it's important to save, even if that just means a few cents here and there. With that, I'm declaring the piggy bank the must-have decor item of 2009 (OK, I have no basis for that except for that I've been on a hunt for one for most of 2009...). So, even though I am encouraging you to save, I would like you to spend your money by supporting small, independent shops like Etsy sellers — and spending is the only way for the country to get out of recession, you know.
