    £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!

    7 yesterday, 1 in change, 3 from work and 3 swapped with my other half.

    I popped to the hallmark store in our local factory outlet and they have the small pots of dreams at half price at the moment (£4.99). Just in case anyone has one nearby. Handy timing for Xmas presents etc!

    Hi Everyone,
    Good to see that you are all still filling up your pots/tins.
    I havenít potted any over the past two weeks as hubby and I have been spending Dongs not pounds.
    Hope your Christmas preparations have been going well.

    My end of year total is £186 - didn't quite hit the target but who cares It's a nice pot of cash stashed away painlessly which I can spend freely. Here's to starting again in 2018, definitely having another go.

    So a very happy Christmas to my fellow savers, a happy new year of potting or piggy banking to you all and thanks to Gem-gem for organising the thread.

    2018 £2 Savers Club. Target = £200. Current: £18
