You can now buy the world's smallest piggy bank to hold all your money

Saving money is a challenge at the best of times. While we all should have a little kept back for a rainy day, more often than not, our present lives have financial demands that are nigh impossible to ignore.

That's why, if you're a millennial, in particular, your savings will likely be pitiful - if they even exist.

But that doesn't mean you shouldn't at least try to save. Even if you do so realistically. And while there's a lot of apps out there that offer to keep back the equivalent of a coffee and whatnot, now you could do so using the world's smallest piggy bank.

Standing at a mere inch tall, this tiny piggy bank gives you the realistic goal of saving just a single coin.

However, if you were thinking of buying a tiny piggy bank for yourself or a friend, I'm afraid you're going to end up with quite the collection on your hands as, at the moment, they can only be purchased in bulk, priced at $14 for 100 piggy banks.

Hilariously, this means that you'd have to fill 14,000 of the banks (assuming they can hold nothing bigger than a cent) to buy a bag of them.

Or, if you happen to be Amazon CEO Jeff Bozo and have a net worth of $109.2 billion, you'd need 10.9 trillion tiny piggy banks to store it.

Needless to say, this means that these piggy banks aren't ideal for saving up your pennies in the most literal way possible.

If, for example, you have your eye on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, you'd need to save up $59.99 (£49.99), equating to 5,999 piggy banks at a cost of $80. A little counterproductive, admittedly.
