What a nice metaphor for the state of my finances. So, what, the Titanic Piggy Bank is going the Grandma route, and employing guilt to exact fiscal responsibility and discipline? Well, after 20+ years of reckless spending, I'm impervious to such tactics. It's going to take a lot more than a sand-cast bronze and aluminum sinking ship to convince me to stow away the Benjamins I'd rather spend on, oh, say, a LEGO Vampire GT Supercar.

For over 30 years, metal worker Scott Nelles has been hand forging charming Titanic coin savers--as well as other whimsical bronze and aluminum sculptures and toys--in his Elk Rapids, Michigan foundry. The piggy bank measures 8" high, and weighs 3 pounds. It is made to order, and typically requires 2 to 3 weeks to ship.
