House Keeper
House Keeper

Time is money, and alarm clock is like a housekeeper who wakes you up on time every day – but have we ever paid for the service?
This alarm clock helps you build the habit of saving, because you will need to deposit coins to activate this alarm clock, otherwise it won’t make the morning call.
Its appearance resembles a safe – in which you keep your most precious possession, the time. When you insist on sleeping in, you are just slowly let your money stolen away, and this loyal housekeeper will increase its intensity of screaming at you to remind you the passing of time.
