    2 Savers Club 2018 22nd Dec 17 at 4:54 PM
    Welcome to the 2 Savers Club 2018

    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 2018,
    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!!!8217;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!!!8217;s it. Start saving, comment regularly and hunt for those 2s. Any questions or comments please ask.

    How will you store them. Might see if there ia a cardboard tube or similar that I can use, or maybe a jar.

    Hi Everyone,
    I am not going to set myself a monetary value this year - target is to fill my pot. I am rolling over the coins from the past three months. Gem-gem

    Good luck with your saving. Please keep us posted on how well you are doing. Some people post every time they get a coin, others post once a week. It is up to you. Do let us know if you get an interesting design on your 2 coin.
