    Welcome hermionesaver, your number #4, please add this to your signature, did you want to set a target?

    Give the first post a read, or have a look at last years thread on how it works, along with the update and progress spreadsheet links...

    Good luck and welcome again

    I have added my number to my sig. I'm really not sure what to put for a target, I'm aiming to put whatever I save into my emergency fund at the end of the year so maybe £200. I may adjust this in a month or two depending on how much is (or isn't!) building up.

    Lets go for £200 then, and see how you get on :-)
