So, the title is pretty self explanatory, but this is the place to be in 2017 :D
In 2017, the aim is to save £12k (or, any other amount if you like!) from 1st January 2017 til 31st December 2017. I know it's early, but it gives you the time to plan for how you are going to do it!

RULES:

- This challenge starts on 1st January 2017 00:00 and finishes on 31st December 2017 23:59.
- Everything saved MUST be done between these two dates.
- Any interest gained during this challenge on your savings can be counted!

Feel free to sign up :D but, please only sign up if you intend to go the distance - the thread tends to start off great and then people disappear :(
