    Hi Julicorn

    Thanks for running this challenge again. I’m in again for next year. Was #68 in 2019 which I’m happy to keep or change to a lower number. Whatever works.

    I managed to get to £5k this year so I’d like to stretch goal next year to £6.000 and hopefully the accountability here will get me there. Feeling really positive about it.

    Thank you for taking part again :) I've bumped you up a little to #36, hope that's ok.

    Hi Julicorn

    Thank you for running the tread again, it's very much appreciated :)

    Currently #49 but would happily move up the S/S.

    I'd like to put in a provisional target in 2020 of £6,500.00 and will let you know the final figure once the new annual overpaying allowance has been finalised April 2020.

    Really hoping to see the interest start coming down in the new year _party__party__party_

    Onwards and downwards all

    That's excellent, thank you! I've moved you up to #38, and you've just brought our target to above £150k already! :j

    Hi
    Can I join for 2020 please? Moved house in May but now have a bigger mortgage so definitely want to start overpaying.
    The first 4 months will be slow while we pay for our holidays but hoping this group will keep me motivated.

    Can you put me down for £2,500 for now please? Thanks
