    Aiming to have 5000 by March 2017

    Aiming to have 5000 by March 2017 13th Oct 16 at 8:26 AM
    Hi Guys,

    So here's a little about me, I joined these forums 8 years ago with unmamangable debt. This debt is cleared and I've managed to stay debt free.
    In July we bought our first home, which we love but we would like to build a workshop. It's my partners dream- so our aim is to raise 5000 by March 2017.
    So far we have 1873.48 in savings- this is in an ISA but I will be moving it into a Nationwide 5% current account.
    We are due 1800 insurance payout and 150 for switch his account to the co op- but wont count these until we have them!
    I start training for my new job on Monday so will have some overtime whilst training and free breakfast/Dinner and hotel stay.

    any tips on how to get this money will be greatly appriciated
    Lilly

    If you need around 1400.00 by the looks of your post above I would look at anything you can save spending on more so your OH seeing as he wants the workshop, Not saying that you don't help but suggest ways he can help it happen quicker ie:- no pub night, no takeaway or no clothe shopping for him, If you look at the fact that you took less than a year to pay a debt of almost 5000 this shows that you can save easy enough.

    I would reccommend matched betting, you would definately reach your target by doing that.
