    Would really like to join this, bit of a lurker on here and enjoy reading people's diaries.

    I have a mortgage of 55k, thing is I'm aiming to seriously build up savings (now 40 :mad:) for the future, and planning on FINALLY decorating the house from top to bottom (made do with second hand and cheap furniture for the past 18 years whilst DS was growing up, plus I'm not prepared to sacrifice my current live style to OP. Not extravagant by any means however I enjoy going to football matches (especially away days) which flitter my hard earned cash away!

    Aiming to OP £1500 this year through small things (saving £2 coins etc)
    MFW 2017 No 41 £835.79/£1000
    Mortgage at December 2015. £55003.41
    Mortgage at December 2016. £51173.04

    I think that's a fab way to OP. £125 a month would equal £1500 a year so you only need to find £4 a day to make it. Not buying a burger at the footy, walking instead of taking the bus, saying no to the extra pint... X

    Oooh, please may I join this year? Brand new mortgage of £110,000, aiming to pay off £20,000 in 2016. It's a lot for me and I may not make it, but I'm still going to aim high as I really want to get myself off to a flying start on this. Every penny counts, right? :D
