    I'm in, for the last time (I hope!) :)

    Target is £12,589 which will completely clear my mortgage and would like to keep my current number if possible!

    Of course you get to keep #8, and what an exciting goal! :T

    I’m going to set a target of £600 initially please, although I may well adjust this once I’ve had a chance to do some calculations at the end of next month.
    Many thanks for all your work :)
