    Good morning everyone

    Sorry I seem to have lost track of time and have not posted in a while. So much saving going on and "wow" to the people who have already started gathering the gifts.

    Just popping into say that I've reached my goal and a little more, so am reporting my total saved rather than a monthly figure:

    #040 confirming total saved £391 / £365

    Thanks to this challenge, I'm not worrying about funding Christmas this year, I'm just looking forward to it!

    Have a great Friday
    Miss DM
