    I would love to join this challenge in 2020 please. I have a small amount of debt to finish paying and not much disposable cash but I am determined to do my best to clear the mortgage by the time I'm 50 (9 years time!).
    I would like to start with £1000 as my target for the year.
    Thank you.

    Hi Julicorn

    Could I join for 2020 please?

    Same target as 2019 - £2,500 please. My no. in 2019 was #97, but I don't mind having a new number.

    I'm hoping I actually achieve my goal in 2020, 2019 has proven to be challenging, one-way or another....��

    Thanks for doing this Julicorn.

    CS xx
