    I would love to join in next year!

    Life will change massively for us soon, but the plan is continue overpaying what we can. I'd like to set a target of 3k overpaid in 2014 please. Secretly hoping to improve on that by quite a lot, but 3k feels like a good target for now :)

    Please keep the 2014 targets coming. Great to see so many already. :)

    People with existing numbers they want to keep have until 27 December to claim them. After that, they will be allocated on a first come, first served basis in numerical order (as available). It will be at that point that I'll publish the initial 2014 participants list in the first post. Any queries, just PM me. Thanks. :)

    I'd like to join please - #95 from 2013 thread. My target for 2014 is £7500.

    Remortgage means that my monthly payments are significantly reduced but as I'm not used to having that money, I've set up a standing order for the difference (£225) to go out each month.

    These monthly overpayments give me an annual overpayment of £2700 so hopefully I can make up the difference during the year.

  • Hello everyone :)

    Great to see the new exciting 2014 thread so busy already :j

    Please can I be number 135 again and set my target as £2100, which should be enough to see us mortgage free in June 2014 :D

    Thanks very much JCL :T
