    Hi, new to the forums, and would like to join in please :)


    Welcome MrsMouse - until I do the number shuffle at the end of the month, I've allocated you #122. Welcome to both the forum and the challenge. Keep us updated on your progress. If you'd like me to add a goal, please let me know ;)

    Deposited some money and now on £400/£1000 :) Hoping to put some more in when I finally get paid


    Progress updated ponypal :D
    I have your target down as £3000 from post #8. If you'd like me to amend it to £1000 to work in bitesize chunks let me know ;)

    You are making steady progress, keep up the good work.

    Thank you Dobbi, I am happy to take #52 my 6 month EF would be £12,000, I think it may take me about 18 - 24 months to get there. Thank you
    Goal of £12000 added for you MummyRivett.

    It doesn't matter how long it takes you. We are all here for the long run. Anything you add is a positive so keep up the good work.



    Keep on keeping on guys.

    Pay day, woohoo!!

    Added £60 to my EF so now the total is £456/£3,000.

    Really hope I won't have to dip in it next month, have so so many expenses in Jan/Feb... Luckily managed to get some overtime which covered the cost of a new TV. It's taking me ages to get everything I need for my new home...probably because I'm being fussy. :D Can not wait for that first month when I do not need to purchase some kind of appliance or furniture!

    Well done both - you are plodding on at a lovely pace. :D

    Welcome aboard MoneysaverNikki, of course you can join. :wave:



    Let me know if you have a goal you're aiming for. I'm updating post #2 in a few weeks with all member details when I have a better idea of who is keeping their previous number. For the moment, you can be member #123, when I do the update and shuffle the numbers I'll see if I have a lower number for you.



    We're a friendly bunch and will be cheering you on from the sidelines.



    Dobbi ;)

    Yesterday I was invited to speak at an event and they gave me a gift of £50, it was such a lovely surprise. The cheque is going straight onto the Emergency Fund, taking me up to £460.

    #12 checking in :). Appliance replacement costs have meant slow progress on the EF, but as of today I'm at £275/£5000. All but £50 is in an account I can't access, so I need to make sure my other savings pots are topped up as well! I made that 5.5 % which is better than nowt.
