Coin Pots (කාසි කැට) | 5% For SL-Charity

After few hardworking days, I'm getting relax breath. Happy to say, I was able to give a complete re-arrangement for my room. This time I gave big time for my cupboard because I didn't clean inside of my cupboard for a long time. If my grandma saw that, she will say, "finally you have reminded your cupboard". Because the days she was with us, she always said me to clean my cupboard but I didn't.

After cleaning my cupboard, I packed the things in the cupboard. It's like I went to a different world. A lot of things reminded me of my childhood. My collected stamps, old coins, books, Coin pots and so many little things I have collected in my cupboard . Thanks to little Sandupi, oneday I can show them my children happily 🙊.


So guys, I thought to write about my coin pots. We call them kasi kata(කාසි කැට) in my language. When I was a kid, my mom had a coin pot from bank and since that day, when I have coins, I put them in to the pot. It was a good way to teach the saving habit for children and that is still exists. My coin pots has made from plastic aand it isn't depnd on the materiial because I have seen clay coin pots also. Therehas a small hole as shown in my picture can be enter coins.

I have no idea that coin pots are available in supermarkets. I had my both coin pots from the bank. They are offered by banks specially in first of January and in sinhala awrudu season in my country.


As I said before, I have two coin pots. My mom said to me, blue one is twenty one years old coin pot. That means It has given from the bank when I was four years old. I can remember, Sinhala awrudu season was the good time for my coin pot. Because I was rich from coins in every Sinhala Awrudu Season when I was a child. Now It's full of coins and can't enter coins anymore.

Then the yellow one. It is very new one. I had this yellow coin pot this year, first of January. Actually It had to my mom from the bank and mom gave me that. Thanks to the bank, I'm continuing my childhood habit. Sometimes we are controlled by our inner child. When I had this box, my mother told me to give it to my sister's child. But I didn't like to that and now it is full of coins too. That's why I said that Sometimes we are controlled by our inner child.

I can't guess how much rupees in the pot. As the empty coin pot fills from coins one by one, the weight increases and becomes stronger. It is harder to hold in the hand because it is heavier. That is the signal that the coin pot gives us. Take advantage of these savings now! Yes, we save money for our future use. But I hope to help someone who needs help from the money in these two coin pots.
