- A man with the Twitter handle @itsBolajii saved enough money in his piggy bank to treat himself to a good Christmas season
- @itsBolajii broke up his savings box to reveal crumpled notes that were rolled in to fit into the receptacle
- People wondered how he was able to keep himself from tearing the paper box down before the due date
A man with the Twitter handle @itsBolajii will be having a very glorious Christmas celebration as he finally opened the piggy bank he has been saving in for a long time.
In a post on Monday, December 21, he shared photos showing the box which contained folded paper money notes.
As a way to show he has enough money to spend at his disposal, @itsBolajii asked tweeps where he could "turn up at."
Many applauded his courage for saving that much in a piggy bank made from a carton, unlike the common wooden ones.
See his post below:
Briefly.co.za compiled some of the reactions his post got below:
"You use carton save money? You really tried. You’re strong."
"I was about saying this, how the you save that much money in carton? I was gonna tear them myself, I can't even use safe that has padlock, when I was younger, the kind of piggy mum bought requires the intervention of the welder to open."
"Avoid spending money you have, your future will thank you for that..."
"The money must have lost its value inside that safe, since dollar has risen by almost 50%."
"I remember when I was saving with this ...total savings was supposed to be 122k opened it and saw 27,050. My world crumbled!!! Started saving from feb-june and lo and behold!!!"
"My mom once gave me one piggy. I don't know that she'd opened it before. So she was just harvesting my money as I was putting it in the piggy. I was shocked when I tried to break the piggy and I found out that it had been opened before."
"Planning on opening mine next year, been saving for two years."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that a woman donated essentials to an orphanage ahead of her 21st birthday. A young lady by the name of Khensani Shuma shared that she recently went to a nearby orphanage to donate a whole bunch of items. Khensani will be 21 years old in January and is still a student.
However, she said her mom pushed her to do what she can. Khensani went to Phumlani Orphanage where she donated clothes, sanitary napkins, toiletries and party packs. She thanked her mother for pushing her.
