    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


    Go to "Quick Links" (right side of top green bar), click and then click on "Edit Signature" and off you go :D

    Thanks for running this thread again, last few weeks left to get in some more on the 2015 thread...

    Hi SF

    Can you put me down for 2016 with a target of £2000. Reached my target of £1000 for 2015 and have now paid off my credit card, so no debts apart from the mortgage.

    If there are any higher numbers can I change my number? :)
    Thanks DL

    Hi slowlyfading


    Please can I join for 2016?


    Not sure of my target yet as we are (hopefully) moving from a flat to a house next year so our monthly bills will increase plus we need to decorate and buy furniture.


    I will let you know target when I get a better idea of how much is left over a month :)
