    Thank you for doing this again.

    2019 was supposed to be the year we got our mortgage and then after a bit of cosmetic work on the house we started making OP's. it didn't work out like that though and we ended up taking 9 months extra to actually buy a different house that needed far more than a bit of cosmetic work so OP's didn't happen.

    2020 though will see me making a bigger effort though although I'd still like to keep my number and target of £500 the same please.

    Thanks for joining again this year! Sounds like you've put that money to good use though, and all the best for the 2020 overpayments :)

    Hi, please could I sign up? We're just about to complete on our first home so our mortgage is imminent. I'd like to start small though! £1000 for the year, please :) as we've got other things to save up for first!
    Original settlement date: Dec-54 Projected: Jul-55 (due to 3 month mortgage holiday!)

    No 74 wishing to do the 2020 challenge. Could I keep the same number please and going to aim for £3000 as we have big holidays lined for next year so will try to be realistic unlike this year. Thanks for all your hard work so far and in the future.
