    £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.

    Three more £2 coins today.
    Had to let one more go, as I didn't have anymore change.
    Both were normal.

    I have just counted up my posts and I have potted 92 coins so far this year = £184.
    Nearly achieved 2/3rd of my target.
    I'm going to change my target to £360 which will cover all Christmas presents. So 50% achieved.

    It's a great way to save for things like Christmas I find. A few years ago I managed to "almost" pay for a long weekend to Barcelona for MrM and I - Thanks to Groupon aswell!

    I've been on holiday so not many have come my way, managed to get just the 1 this morning.

    (I did think about saving my €2 euro coins ;-D )
