    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.

    That is fab. I always think a steady trickle is better - easier on the purse/ bank account.

    I haven't potted for a while, but I will change some 1 (from spc) into 2 to pot straight into my terramundi pot, that way at least one gets fed...

    Then I will change the rest into new 1 and continue to feed and fund, without the need to bank, (I think I have yet to bank any money since 2005 when I got my first pot, I just bought a bigger pot and swopped out...

    The incentive to fill the big one up is great, as I believe it will hold 3k in 1/2 coins, at the moment its just got 2 coins in and all the picture ones have been saved and put in my 2 collectors folder, (I am up to date apart from Jane Austen from this year) I seem to have lost the eye to look out for this one, as I am on potter watch at the moment, keeping eye out for Tom Kitten.

    Anyway hope all is well
