  • I am a lurker on here so can I join please for 2022, 
    I am saving for the house deposit then maybe mid year I will need to switch the goal over to OP once I have finally bought. 
    My initial goal though is £33,000 saved in 2022 if I don't buy, its a huge goal but i have very low expenses at present and a great income so it is doable. 
    There will always be a (beautiful stilettoed) foot in fabulous in LaPlan's life.
    I am choosing to be fabulously frugal to support some wonderful life changing and affirming financial goals including buying a London home I love.

    DON'T BUY STUFF (from Frugalwoods)
    No seriously, just don’t buy things. 99% of our success with our savings rate is attributed to the fact that we don’t buy things. You can’t really hack your way to frugal. You can and should take advantage of discounts, coupons, rewards points, and the like. But at the end of the day, the only way to truly save money is to not buy stuff.    Money doesn’t walk out of your wallet on its own accord.

    Hi Julicorn, thanks for running again 🌟! I'm sure everyone appreciates the time you give up to do this. 

    Can I please keep no 86. Am going to go for 5k this year but it's a bit of a stab in the dark because we'll be paying for childcare from May which will have a huge impact on our ability to overpay, and I'm not sure exactly what we'll have left :(. We're hoping to move to a bigger place in 2 years when our fix comes to an end so the more we can overpay the better. 
    Finally bought a home
    Starting mortgage £289,500 31.01.19 - Current outstanding £207,243.66
    Overpayments since 27.03.19: £46,161.46
