    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.

    Not too shabby.

    Seriously? I got three earlier on today after not having had any at all last month. Went to the theatre with the kids tonight and came home with another three! Now I know where all the local 2 coins are being spent, hehehe

    After all hope was lost after not having a sniff of a 2 coin all week I managed to scoop 3 lovely coins. My brother swapped me 2 and a pound coin for a 5 note and a gentleman swapped me 2 1 coins for one in the pub last night. Goes to show persistence pays off

    New total so far 68

    Isn't it typical that I decide to do this and hardly any have crossed my palm this year. Anyway the few I've had have been going into a nice little ceramic money bank that I need to smash to get at. Hardly worth it yet when theres less than ten in there.

    Another six 2 coins tonight at the quiz. Could have swapped another three but hubby swapped 10 worth of 50p's and we didn't have anymore money with us. (After paying for the quiz and fish and chips).
    Five coins were plain, one coin was King James Bible coin.

    think mine old one gave up the ghost on the 4th or 5th year!

    Finally after weeks of nothing I got 1 2 in my change today!
