    £2 Savers Club for 2019 22nd Dec 18 at 11:04 PM
    Welcome to the £2 Savers Club 2019

    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 2019,
    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...

    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 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 thatís it. Start saving, comment regularly e.g. let us know what type of coin you have obtained and hopefully it won't be too long before those pots are feeling heavy.

    Hubby received one £2 coin in his change - a plain variety.

    Haven't received any £2 coins for a few weeks as we swapped £ for •
    Have ticked off a couple of things on our bucket list:
    1) riding a Shinkansen Bullet train
    2) stayed in a traditional Japanese inn
    3) visit Hiroshima

    Enjoy your hols GemGem. The £2 coins will be waiting for you to return.

    I received another one last night at Bingo so that's been potted safely.
