    Hows everyone doing,

    Only 9 days left to go of April, can we make a total saved £400, for April.

    We are currently on £233.13 so we need another £166.87, can we do it?...

    Good idea to wait till you work out where you want your isa allowance to be put this year, to be honest, with my banking head on ISA rates are so low that I cant see it being a problem where you put the money or which company you choose....

    You could add the total to the next one, if you decide where your isa will be,

    Thought I would send in an update of my own.

    I am over halfway and almost at the halfway point, so doing pretty well. I could have saved more but I keep on overpaying on my mortgage, not a bad thing really. I am also squirriling money off each month into a better ISA.

    Once I have hit my target I will raise a bit more 😉
