So, the title is pretty self explanatory, but this is the place to be in 2022 :D it's that time of year, again!

In 2022, the aim is to save £12k (or, any other amount if you like) from 1st January 2022 til 31st December 2022. I know it's early, but it gives you the time to plan for how you are going to do it. Please comment on the thread to sign up and any plans you might have to hit your aim!

It would be nice if people felt they could chat about their savings  challenges through the months, as it probably will help other people too  :)

- Everything saved MUST be done between these two dates.
- Any interest gained during this challenge on your savings can be counted!

    Hi SF thanks for doing this again. 

    I'm in two minds about 2022, in terms of targets, but I'm going with 25k for now. 

    I may reduce this later as its a big birthday year and if I can I will likely do some big trips. Depends on travel restrictions. 

    Same number if possible 😊 no. 48 I think.
