    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!

    Slow progress here; I'm on 54 and was hoping to reach 200 by Xmas. So it's time for cunning plans

    On the other hand, I have a jar with 54 in it which might otherwise have been spent so there's nothing to be downbeat about
    2018 2 Savers Club. Target = 200. Current: 18

    2 x 2 coins in the pot this morning. I'm actually starting to remember to look at the back but nothing exciting.

    I used to find the self service machines in supermarkets were really good at paying out but now I rarely get a 2 coin from them. Anyone else find the same?

    Really slow going. I'm suspecting it's because I'm on a tight budget (see sig) and not really using cash. Not convinced I'm going to get very far at all but will keep plugging away. Even if I end up with 50 that's better than nothing!

    2 more for the pot today. I swapped a 10 note for a lot of coins in 7yo's piggy bank. She likes the 2 coins but I sneaked them out without her seeing!
