    Hi, I'd like to keep No. 3 if possible and to set a target of £3000.

    Thanks for setting up the thread hiddenshadow :T

    Ha ha! Each month as the interest goes down I change down all the future interest payments on my trusty spreadsheet (do other people do this, I wonder?!), so hopefully it will not be £4 owing at the end.

    In fact, the spreadsheet exists for 2018 as well, which shows just how much I will be able to save. The thought of impending redundancy / retirement will spur me on, as by the end of 2017 I will be able to really save in earnest (there should be a building society called Earnest!).

    Many thanks for running the thread hiddenshadow, it's much appreciated :)

    I'd like to take part again this year but have not set a target yet, can I pop back with a target in a few days please, and cheekily ask for the same number again 21 if possible :D

    Cheers, newgirly
