    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 isnít 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 thatís it. Start saving, comment regularly and hunt for those £2s. Any questions or comments please ask.

    Afternoon!

    Become a tad obsessed with collecting £2 coins so in this first week:

    #22 - £50 paid in = £50 so far!

    I'm not doing a target so I'll just keep plodding on as I am and will see what I can pay off at the end of the year with what I save.

    Happy saving!

    Ps. What is your favourite chocolate drink? Hubby bought me the milky hot chocolate drink from Hotel chocolat, it is fab!
