    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’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’s it. Start saving, comment regularly and hunt for those £2s. Any questions or comments please ask.

    Hi all!

    Have been away for a couple of months due to working a LOT of overtime.

    Haven't added to my pot for a while as I have been concentrating on my debt. Stayed the same for now. Back to it this week.

    No. 47....I think if my memory is correct.

    Well, yesterday I was going say I was jacking this in
    A) I just wasnít getting any
    B) I dipped into it a couple of months ago
    C) two pound coins were just nowhere to be seen since I said I was doing it and figured I had jinxed by plan by saying it out loud...

    However, I decided to count it before I posted, and have £300 in there which I am pretty sure is more than I started with ( havenít searched for original post), plus since saying to myself I was going to ditch it..........I have come across 3 in a day....

    So...iím sticking with it. I will not make my goal to fill the jar, as I think that would take another 1K....so I have maybe been a bit rash with the size of the jar, but will carry on.
    Yep...still at it, working out how to retire early........ Going to have to rethink that scenario as have been screwed over by the company. A work in progress.

    Grr,I am so jealous of all you people snaffling coins left right and centre. I have been shopping 6 times in the last fortnight,and never got even one!Still stuck on 68 coins,£136

    Plus I havent been to the family history group for weeks,I normally get a couple of coins a month from there.
    Will I reach my target of £150 by end of October? 7 coins,so it would be a doddle for most of you,not so much for me. I am so not a £2 coin magnet

    Good morning Calicocat,
    Glad to hear that you are sticking to the savers club.
    I obtained one yesterday but let another three slip me by. I went out for a meal with some old work friends and when it came to paying £2 x3 appeared. But I only had a £10 note and a £1 coin with me. I had spent my change that afternoon in Lidl. (All coins were plain). I was so cross with myself!!!!!
