    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’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.

    Oops,been too busy to post here.6 more coins,200,my target!
    Today we opened our sealed pots and totted up our savings on the Sealed Pot challenge. I saved an amazing 1992 over the year,and my good old 200 worth of 2 coins contributed to that total. The way I started off so well,with 44 in 2 coins the first month,I expected to make at least 400,but it just never happened..Most of the time the 2 coins are as rare as hen's teeth!
    ll but 5 of the coins are in my House and Home fund in my credit union,put aside for whichever kitchen white goods break down

    Gem-Gem,when does this challenge end?My Sealed Pot challenge is finished,we are starting again over there,but this 2 saving is overlapping and I dont know where to allocate any 2 coins. My poor old brain gets confused so easily these days.
    So would you mind if I just declare my savings now,a nice round 200.which was my goal?
    Then I'll start again in January.
    I am moving all the Xmas money saved in various places,bank,pots etc into my current account ready for Xmas shopping. No more saving till next year,apart from shrapnel, just SPEND SPEND SPEND
    Which feels strange and weird after a year of frugal living trying to spend as little as possible.
    I am going to try to curb spending for Xmas though,and maybe will have some money left to salt away for that USA trip in May?
    So my 2 coin saver challenge grand total is 200

    Hi Dustydigger,
    Most people go onto 31/12 with this challenge. However, I have been known to count my coins in November so that I can do my Christmas shopping and just start again. It is your challenge so you set your own rules to when you want to start/ finish. I will start up the new forum towards the end of December.
    Once again, well done on your total.

    I potted some 2 on Friday but I forgot to count them, was from subs from a few of my guides (which was nice, as they didn't know, and was from their tip jar as parent works as a chef) so I was happy that I got some to add to the pot, I just have to remember to cash it up so I can bank it into the guides bank account.
