    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.

    I am (reluctantly) popping 10 coins into the credit union this afternoon.That leaves 3 coins in my little jewellery box drawer.... 86 saved now in total.
    Will I manage to reach my tentative target of 200 this year?Not if we get horrific dry spells like February and March again!
    Maybe I'll get one from my family history group today. Done most of my shopping online or by card lately,so not much change of any kind.

    Taking people to the airport tomorrow morning. They have paid for the petrol with 20 x 2 coins. Yay! Can't wait to get them into my pot.
    One is a Magna Carta coin. One is a Brunel coin. Other 18 are plain.

    Yes, one of them collects 2 coins and they then use them towards their holiday spending money. I quickly suggested that they paid me with them rather than bank them and give me notes.

    I did a boot fair today, only spent three hours there as I did it by myself. Managed to get 8 x 2 coins. I couldn't believe my luck because one of them was the Welsh commonwealth 2 coin. I also got an abolition of slavery and a Shakespeare crown coin.

    My pot is getting very heavy. I shone a light into it, I am over half full now.
