    Hi Slowlyfading,


    Thank you for choosing to run this again.


    Currently No55 on the 2015 version.
    I would also like to join for 2016 as 2016 will definitely be a challenging year financially. Please put me down for a £6000 target.
    No. 24 in the 'Save 12k for 2020' thread.

    Hi SF can I join again please?

    I'd like to go for £6000 this time as I am going to have a slight drop in income next year due to my Mum having paid back everything she owes me, so no monthly income from that!

    Oh I'm really pleased you're doing this again SF! I thought that with a new baby it would be a bit too much. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into it. It's helped me so much, it really has. I can't believe how much I've saved this year.
    So long as people are okay with it not being updated every other second, I can manage :)
    Great, I'm 007 - Licence to Save! :D
    Haha, excellent!

    Spreadsheet updated :) it's nice to see lots of familiar faces signing up again!

    Please make a note of your challenge numbers - they are probably not the same as last year.

  • Me too, I'll stick with £3000 for now. I have really enjoyed this and watching everyone's savings growing, thanks for running it.
    Fell off the money wagon, but never mind, I'm back now.
