    Welcome Ladymorticia,

    Your number is #11 please add this to your signature so I can see it. Yes you can add to your pot more then once a week, you can either then send me the update form as you do the transfer or keep a note and update me at the end of the month,

    Some send me one form others do it as they transfer so they don't forget I don't mind either way, as long as I get a update form as this thread can move quite quickly and I don't want to miss declarations

    Welcome and good luck .

    Hi Westie,

    Thanks so much for running this challenge again.

    I managed about £230 in the end for Christmas and it was such a help, so I'd love to take part again. I don't mind whether I have a new number or stay 24 - whatever's easiest for you.

    My target is £250, ready for December 2017, although this may get depleted in June for my holiday money.
    DF by Xmas 2017: #83 £2,000/£10,000 20%
    SPC 7: #135 | Baby Fund: £1000/£5000 | VSP 2017: #24 £61.49
    1 debt vs 100 days 25: £10/£2500 | NSDs 2/15
Welcome to our new Forum!
