    The 5k challenge!!! 21st Aug 12 at 5:04 PM
    I am Gothrockchic (aka GRC). I have moved over from the Debt Free diary board. I have been Debt Free for a month now. I moved to Edinburgh three months ago to find a Rock Band, so far so good and I have found a guitarist and hope to soon find a drummer and another guitarist.

    So the goal is to save 5000 2000 will be spent on equipment we need good instruments, pedals and wires etc. 3000 will be spent on recording. I figured that it would be best to start saving whilst time is on our side. If it doesn't work out then I can spend the money on a personal project.

    So the 5k challenge begins, I have 477 to start off with which is leftover savings after paying off all debts and using them for a deposit on a flat. I also have 82 in Amazon vouchers which we can buy equipment from Amazon too

    So the main way is by my wages and any vouchers or extras I get.

    Welcome to the challenge, anyone is welcome to join
