For the past four years,

For the past four years, whenever Odenton resident Gwen Jones has found coins on the floor or sidewalk, she has put them in a pink piggy bank covered with polka-dotted pigs. Gwen says such saving is important because "you could get something if you save your money. . . . I could buy stuff from a bubble gum machine." Once, she took money out to buy some ice cream. Saving pennies allows Gwen to buy more than any individual pennies could buy. However, since piggy banks provide less-than-competitive interest rates, she isn't keeping up with inflation.
