How to: Open your Terramundi savings pot, without smashing it!

So, my lovely fiancé and I are going away this weekend and he's booked the whole thing as a surprise; so I have no idea where I'm going (how romantic is he?). I just know that we're going to have lots to do and I'm allowed to have a little shopping spree, so I decided it was time to open my holiday savings pot. I have a 'pot of dreams' savings pot; but that one is nowhere near full enough to open yet and I have a lovely Terramundi pot. I find these pots far too beautiful (and expensive) to just smash into bits every time they get full, so I thought I'd show you how to get to your stash without having to give up the loveliness of the pot.

First up, you're going to need to get yourself a small hammer or chisel or something that resembles the size and shape of these objects and isn't going to snap or bend if you put lots of pressure on it. I used a hammer and just popped it into the coin slot and pressed gently upwards.

It really didn't take much pressure and the break was nice and clean. I've been able to release my small fortune and pop the lid back on with just a small crack, which would go unnoticed by most people, unless they were inspecting it. I suppose you could glue the top back on, but I'm not sure how easy it would be to pop it back off again, so I've just rested mine back on top and it's pretty secure. If you wanted to, you could discard the top of the pot and give the rim a lick of paint and you have yourself a newly designed open pot for anything you like.

I'm not sure if this would work with the 'pot of dreams' savings pot as it is much lighter and seems more fragile, so it could shatter. I will let you know when I open it, but I also heard you can stick a knife in the coin slot and your coins should just pour out. I tried this with the Terramundi pot and I managed to get a grand total of three £2 coins out after about 10 minutes of trying and I put notes in my savings pots, so there was no way they were just going to slide out.

What do you think of this idea, would you try it or would you just smash your pot and buy a new one? If you have any alternative suggestions, please share them with us in the comments section below.
