    £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.

    Had two this week clunking into my tin.

    It's MrM's 40th in just under a month and I've said I can't afford to buy him a present but he'd like to go out for a meal so I've said I'll cash in my £2 pot for him. so I'll be starting again in August.
