    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.

    One more to add to the pot, asked the poor lad in Greggs if he had any and if so could I have one in my change when I bought my usual black coffee before work this morning.
    Feeling really crafty may have to try it again tomorrow

    New total £46 (will update signature on Sunday when hopefully I'll get at least one more).

    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    Thanks for all the message and PM's I must say I have felt loved in a period when I felt nobody could..

    Trying to keep busy, I have rejoined SW after 4 years away, I have resigned up to the pool and I will get into a routine after my operation next weekend.

    Lets get myself moving again and maybe I will feel better for it.

    Went to a quiz night and had a really good night for three reasons:
    1. We won the quiz - bottle of wine for each of us;
    2. Swapped up 11 £2 coins;
    3. One of the coins was a Britannia coin, that I had not got, ten were plain and went into my pot.
