    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.

    Good luck.

    Please can you sign me up again Gem-Gem? I saved 162 in 2016 and hope to do as well this year. No specific target, just as many as I can get! They'll be going into my 'Pot of Dreams' which I acquired Christmas 2015, along with last years coins and I'll keep going until it's full!

    Thank you!

    Please may I join? Saving for spending money for summer holiday, I'd like to have 80 by July. I'm staggered by the amount some people manage to save, I don't often come across 2 coins!

    Hi all,

    Can I please join too for 2017 with a target of 250 until December to treat myself with something nice for my birthday (which falls in December also)? I joined quite late in 2016 and with a house move got side tracked.

    Thanks.

    Thanks Gem-Gem, I'm off to a good start as I just got 2 coins from the self-service at the supermarket. I'm sure there's an abundance of coins at this time of year from everyone having banked their previous years savings!

    An added bonus was an item that kept coming up with an error, the assistant ran it through manually as 2 instead of going to check the correct price, but I'm sure it was meant to have been nearly 3.

    Well done to everyone who is off the starting block. I have yet to obtain one. Mind you I haven't been near the shops and hubby has only been out once since the begging of the year.
