    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!!!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.


    If you haven!!!8217;t already, join the forum to reply!

    Morning Gem,

    I counted up my 2 coins yesterday and I have a grand total of 120 plus 2 that's gone back into the terramundi.

    Not bad considering we moved house, thought it'd be much less than that.

    Definitely back for next year.

    4 coins today. I think there's a good chance of me achieving 400+ this year if I keep the same pace for the next few weeks!

    2 coins today, 3 earlier in the week and a few others here and there. Now up to 392 so only 4 coins between me and an outstanding 400 this year. I'm excited to see how far past 400 I can get by December 31st!
