    2 Savers Club 2018 22nd Dec 17 at 4:54 PM
    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.

    Just emptied my piggy bank to see how many 2 there were - I'm up to 47 already! I will change my target to 250 or 500. My number is 14.

    Hi,Dusty here.I'd love to join in,its always nice to see the way the coins mount up. No specific monetarytarget,but it will be spent on Xmas 2018. Really want to start off early this year saving.I'm an OAP with a big family (4 kids,their partners,5 grandkids,1 great granddaughter with another due in March) so I always need to plan ahead for Xmas. Doing this challenge will be a fun way to focus on saving!

    Hi!

    Please can I join this challenge? I have my pot ready. I have no specific target that I want to set but I intend to use whatever I save to go towards any debts that I am still chipping at, at the end of the year.

    Thank you!
