There is a certain Zen-like quality to the Terramundo Money Pot (above, $39). Deposit your coins in this attractive pot. It can hold up to $500 in dimes, nickels and quarters, but removing your change is a one-way process: You have to break the pot to get your money out. The pots have been used in Italy for more than 2,000 years (you can see examples of the pots in the British Museum), and according to tradition, you must make a wish while smashing it. Then you can use the broken pot to hold plants or candles.
