    Hopefully I'll be gone long before then! Are you wanting to leave as well?

    I'd stay if I could afford the big city life here, but even if I could afford London it's so congested and the quality of life isn't good IMO.

    I've been to other British cities that I've liked - Manchester and Edinburgh spring to mind - but I'm also in need of a bit of adventure and if I'm going to relocate I might as well go the whole hog.

  • Hi

    I have not worked everything into the equation here, I have paid an extra £400 into my ISA and upped the regular payment to £100/month from £50. But also, direct from my wages I pay £75 into a SAYE scheme. Then also S/O for £40 into my daughters Save4it account and £30 into her CTF.

    So every month I am regularly saving 100+75+40+30 = £245

  • I have just got my 'Savings Pig' and put it next to me on my desk at work so when I feel like buying some toast or going to the vending machine I am going to feed my pig instead.....

    It seems like alot of people are saving to buy there new property. Similar to the Mortgage Pig forum is anyone going to follow me and get a 'Savings Pig' and then convert him/her to a 'Mortgage Pig' once you get your new home ??

    :rolleyes:

    Also £6 from www.greenmetropolis.com
    £9 from www.quickwise.co.uk
    £5 extra credit from the 02 loophole.

    Very happy! :)
