    £2 Savers Club for 2020 21st Nov 19 at 9:35 PM
    Welcome to the £2 Savers Club 2020

    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 2020,
    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, £202 or £2020 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 that’s 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.

    You need to give him a big gold star.

    Went to a quiz tonight .... Sadly I could have obtained another one but had to let it go as I had run out of money

    It does grate a bit when coins slip through your fingers doesnít it. I lost a Magna Carta one to someone else at work once as i only had about £1.85 and they had £2 so pocketed the coin. I now try to make sure that I always have 2 x £1 coins in my purse ready for a swap but as I pay cash for most things (other than DDs) to keep to my budget, thatís not always possible.

    Hi all

    Hubby bought two £2 coins for me yesterday. Both plain.
    It is great when you obtain coins and you haven't even needed to go out.

    Morning,

    Potted 7 x £2 coins over the weekend, I think that is the most I've potted at any one time.

    Hi all

    DD has been at me for days to let her open the pot of dreams. So I let her tonight and I'll change the coins into dollars. It had £1021 inside. Why there was a random pound coin in it I'll never know. However I'm chuffed to bits that I saved that up but I don't want to give my £2 coins away

    Well done on collecting over £1000 and not being tempted to break into it. I know it is hard to give them away but think of the lovely memories that you will be working. If you have a few that you really like you could always keep hold of them.
    I know around fifty people who would help you swap / change them up if they could

    Some fabulous work going on here, savers! Well done all of you. I've been poorly the last few days but it does mean I haven't spent a penny, although that also means I haven't got my mitts on any lovely £2 coins, but I'm trying to focus on the positives! Hopefully there'll be some out there for me when I resume spending! And if there's not then what I clearly need to do is get myself a husband! What a great source of coinage!

    Keep up the good work! xxx

    PS - Top work, funfairprincess! I can only hope to follow in your footsteps and fill my pot to the brim! xxx

    Hey savers!

    So it turns out my dear Mum isn't that fussed about £2 coins - she's just collecting money! So I've just traded ten of those pesky £1 coins I got last week for five lovely (plain) £2s! This brings my total to £38, yay!

    Yes, hubby is a great source for me - mind you he does go out and do all the food/ household shopping whilst I am at work. He is retired. (All right for some).
