    £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.

    Hiya Gem-Gem,

    Could I join again please? They're much slower coming in as we don't use cash, but I do like following this thread to see other people's successes.
    I'm starting off with £8.00.

    Sa1

    ETA: Target of £100 please!

    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    Good evening fellow £2 coins savers,

    UncannyScot is using a Dr Who Tardis money box. I am using a Boofle £2 money pot (wedding anniversary present from hubby). What are the rest of you using?
