    I'll join too!

    Been collecting since the summer but my little pig is nearly full and he's got just under £60 in him...

    Should I change the £2 coins into notes at the bank or something?

    DDDK

    I pay mine into the bank - it's not very money saving to keep the savings at home as it won't earn any interest. Everytime I get up to £100 I bank them, and it releases them back into circulation, so we're all more likely to get them. :D

    At last!
    Got a £2 coin in the pub last night, my first one since I decided to join the £2 coin savers club (about a month ago, after which they became annoyingly elusive).

    Yes I've noticed that too, though I'm not speanding as much cash as I used to, but haven't had one in AGES! LOL Now bribing my boyf that I'll buy any he gets off him for £1.50!!! :)

    4 this week, all from DP as I haven't been spending so didn't get any :( suppose that is a good thing really
    One day I might be more organised...........:confused:
    GC: £200
    Slinkies target 2018 - another 70lb off (half way to what the NHS says) so far 25lb
  • Did join last sept. and managed to save £178 but sadly used up for Christmas. Good news though, managed to make it first debt free christmas in years!!:j

    Now I'm organised with budget planner i'm hoping for better things this year!

    Wonder how many £2 coins are left in circulation?! ;) Is it cos i'm not spending as much or does there really seem to be less of them about?

    I got my £2 collecting tin this morning, so I can't update my sig anymore, as its one of those that you need to open with a tin opener to count! So I'll update when (and if) its full :)

  • One more in change today. The collecting tins sound a good idea, would stop me raiding it when I got short of money!
