Decided to finally get my act together and start some saving.

Target: £50,000

Ideally like to be there by 31st January 2015. I will be starting 1st January 2013, so 2 years. Stupidly ambition target and will require some innovative thinking to get there.

I will update at the end of each month and post below the running total.

Let the fun begin.

1st Jan 2013 - (£6000)
Jan 2013 - £200 (£1300 car)
Feb 2013 - £600
Agg Total - £800

    We have the same target. I have £6000 of debt. Would like £50k savings by early 2015.

    I was hoping to bring some over form December but other things got in the way. So my first balance update will be end of this month, hopefully be £800-1000 mark.

    I decided to just delve into the cliches this year, no more smoking and joining a gym. See how long that lasts...

    Life got messy the last few months but should be back to sanity now. January was a poor month but did get a steal of a car.

    Hoping for £1000 for Feb, will do my sums month end.

    Good news 1: Expecting hefty tax rebate in next few months (circa £1250)
    Good news 2: Lots of overtime available next month (circa £300)

    So hoping for £2000 in both March and April.

    Mini target - 'Debt free' April end.
