    £2 Savers Club for 2017

    £2 Savers Club for 2017 1st Jan 17 at 12:31 AM
    Welcome to the £2 Savers Club 2017

    The aim is to collect every £2 coin you can lay your hands on! It is entirely up to you whether you want to:
    A) Save for a particular length of time e.g. monthly or till December 2017,
    B) Save for a particular reason e.g. to pay the car insurance, to pay for a family holiday or to buy birthday presents throughout the year,
    C) Save until you have a specific amount e.g. £20 or £100 or a pot full!
    D) Save for any other reason you can think of...
    You are also welcome to do what you wish with the money. Either bank it as you please or at the end of the year or spend it as required.

    Above all else remember this is a fun thread, but the aim of this website is to SAVE, so any encouragement, comments or help you can give to others are always very welcome.

    Anyone who wishes to join (or be removed though I hope that isn’t the case!) is always very welcome, please just ask and I will add you as soon as I can and allocate you a number. Also, if anyone wants to add anything to the list such as a target or a date to aim for etc. then let me know and I will add it. However there is no pressure to do this as many people just wish to be able to save as and when they can.

    So that’s it. Start saving, comment regularly and hunt for those £2s. Any questions or comments please ask.

    Morning Gem,

    I counted up my £2 coins yesterday and I have a grand total of £120 plus £2 that's gone back into the terramundi.

    Not bad considering we moved house, thought it'd be much less than that.

    Definitely back for next year.

    4 coins today. I think there's a good chance of me achieving £400+ this year if I keep the same pace for the next few weeks!

    Hi all,

    I am going to have to cash in some of my pot!!!!

    I am short this month on bills (the ones that come out on the 21st) and I have some maturing regular savers due (29th, 1st) so it will be only temporally and I will re pot them, once I have the funds...

    No £2 added yet, but Ill be back on the case soon,
