    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.

    Went to my first Blackpool match in over 3 years yesterday - an away game of course for anybody who knows the situation. Beat the top of the league 2-0 and I managed to get a 2 in my change when buying a pie. Because who goes to Wigan and doesn't get a pie?

    76 now for me in the pot.

    Bundled up to brave the cold this am (local forecast said 2 C but would feel like -6 C,and boy were they right! brrr) as I had run out of bread,milk and eggs since I refused to go out in the rain torrents yesterday!
    Was rewarded with a 2 coin in my change,the first in over two weeks

    That makes 23 coins,46

    What a good excuse to buy a pie, to see if you can get a 2 coin in your change.

    It is amazing the lengths that some people go to, to obtain 2 coins.
    I had to sacrifice my time and go wandering round a few charity shops and then buy hubby a few specialised beers in order to obtain mine today. Hubby had to drag me into a pub after a walk in the countryside this morning to obtain his (which I then bought).
