    Hi blue_mango,

    I've added you to the new list.

    I've currently retained your number #113 from the old thread. If other numbers become available I will shuffle you up at the end of January if you like.

    You are doing great. Keep on keeping on.

    Morning,

    Would like to join this challenge.

    Aiming for £10,000 emergency fund.

    Currently have £2500.

    I am on a serious mission for 2019 to have some comfortable savings without missing out dramatically on things (did that for long enough through my getting debt free years.)

    Hi Debtnomoreplease,

    I have kept your number from the old thread as #115 for the moment. Should any lower numbers come up at the end of January I will shuffle you up.
    You are going great at the moment and already at 25% of your target.

    Keep on keeping on.

    Wishing everyone a very happy, healthy and successful year with lots of opportunity to add to your savings:j

    Dobbi I'm going to cease being a challenger so please allocate my number (12) to someone else.


    I'll still be popping in from time to time to see how you're all getting on. Good luck, all:beer:

    Afternoon,

    I was #65 on the previous thread and I’m happy to be shuffled up the way when you get round to sorting the numbers out at the end of the month.

    Can I please amend my target to £3000 as my original target of £9000 is far too ambitious!

    I’m currently sitting at £1,099.55. I did have more but spent some of it oooops.

    I think I need more spending pots for this year. I have a few for expenses such as home insurance, but generally when the little one or I need new clothes etc I end up dipping into the EF which is not what it should be for.
