    Hello, please sign me up for 2017. Total fail this year (spent it on holidays, festivals and a bathroom upgrade) but I'll try for £6k again next year. Thanks SF for running this!
  • I don't count my pensions contributions either towards savings as it's a long-term investment and the value goes up/down. But agreed, everybody makes their own rules here :)

    Hi there, well done to all of you who aced 2016. I've been lurking on the sidelines waiting for our brand new shiny thread for 2017.

    Please put me down for £7,500. Thanks Slowly Fading and congrats on your food bank project, I'm pleased it was such a success.

  • Hi SF,

    Can you please sign me up for £120k ?

    Feels a little risky at the light of the 2016 amount, given that we are going to build an extension to our house as well. But that number and all the efforts and support from this community should continue to motivate me.

    I am now half way through my retirement saving target. Yaye!

  • Hi, I'd love to join again.

    I'd like to challenge myself to £12 000. It's definitely not feasible on my current salary, but going to aim high!
