So, the title is pretty self explanatory, but this is the place to be in 2013 :D
In 2013, the aim is to save £12k (or, any other amount if you like!) from 1st January 2013 til 31st December 2013. I know it's early, but it gives you the time to plan for how you are going to do it!
RULES:
- This challenge starts on 1st January 2013 00:00 and finishes on 31st December 2013 23:59.
- Everything saved MUST be done between these two dates.
- Any interest gained during this challenge on your savings can be counted!

Feel free to sign up :D but, please only sign up if you intend to go the distance - the thread for 2012 started off great and then lots of people disappeared :(
