  • Hello SF. Can I join again please? £10,000 is the target, going to be a real challenge but we'll see how it goes.

    Thanks for setting up these, I like to compare myself to others to ensure i'm not lagging behind

    Spreadsheet updated :)

    Please make a note of your challenger number (see spreadsheet or first post) and put it in your sig - it makes it so much easier to update the spreadsheet! :)
    Hmm, I don't seem to be able to update my sig. Is it because I am pretty new? Will need to get some more posts in then. :D

    Please put me down again for the 2016 thread - target of £25000 please.
    I was just wondering the other day when you might setup the new thread, SF, and you've snuck it in when I wasn't looking! Thanks so much for continuing to run the threads for us all...makes a massive difference to see so many others doing so well.

    I'll jump aboard again next year - I'm quite surprised at what I thought was a tough target I've nearly saved double!! No way was that possible without this thread - ta SF!!

    I'll go for the full £12k as things are likely to change part way through the year knocking down what I can stash aside.

    Could I join again please. I'm number 66 in the 2015 thread.
    I haven't worked out my target yet but will let you know ASAP



    ETA - I am going to motivate myself by including everything this year so my target is £28000.


    This is a combination of pensions, ISAs and regular savers.

    Thanks SF
