    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.

    Woo-hoo! Hubby has come home with five more £2 coins. He is a darling.
    Have to wait until middle of the week before I can swap them.

    So after a bad weekend football-wise I managed to get two £2 coins in my change at the bar at Ewood Park while drowning my sorrows at half time after having one off the wife the night before. Puts me on £84 now. So not doing too bad after a barren couple of weeks.

    The "bad" thing about having NSD's and cutting out snacking is that you don't really spend any cash, so don't get many £2 coins any more.


    Landed another 2 this week though


    #32 now up to 21!
    You can have results or excuses, but not both.

    Good to hear that you are on the mend. Take it easy and think about what you will do when you fill your two pound coin pot up.
