    The 2.00 Coin Savers Club 30th Jan 06 at 1:49 PM
    Thought I would start a new thread for £2.00 Coin Savers….. a sort of club... lol

    My £2.00 Coin Piggy Bank (see wonderful picture below – hee hee) was starting to get really, really heavy, so I emptied it out and a massive 44 coins are in there saved since last December. I popped into the bank this afternoon and put £50.00 of it into the savings account – hooray.

    The balance of 19 coins can stay in there until there’s another £50.00 to bank.

    How many £2.00 Coins have you saved…..

    Thanks for the info on savings tins lil_me.

    Don't have a pound shop in town but will give a good excuse to go to next town and stock up. You never know might be lucky and get some 2's in change!!

    2 savers seem to be very ingenious in finding ways to get hold of the lil'darlin's!! Carry on with the great tips please, I love reading them.

    Some of my babies have flown the nest!!

    Saved 800 of the little darlings & I've had to let some of them go to pay towards having the front garden block-paved!!

    Anyway the paving looks lovely & we couldn't have afforded it without my 2 coin savings. We've been living with a mudbath outside for the last 3 winters!

    Got off to another good start for 2007 holiday savings.

    Well done everyone.

    I would like to join, so far I have £12 saved in a pot (that only I know about!!). I am hoping that I can save a lot but may have to spend them if things get too tight.
    I have only saved 1ps and 2ps so far and have just counted the latest batch £30!! Sadly going towards the gas bill!

    Ooooh I love a challenge!

    I gave up smoking on Monday so from now on when I get my change at the shops I'll ask for it in 2 coins instead of saying "20 Mayfair please"

    By the way does anyone have any ideas how to make a DIY money box?

    I love those Terramundi but they are too pricey for me ;-)

    I am going to lock this thread and start another it takes ages to open large threads especially for people on dial up connections.

    I'm not sure what happened to greenfingers who started the £2 updates, if anyone wants to take over PM me.
