#20 declaring £785.72 for March. Form updated.
Savings a bit under the average I need for my target again. But I know why - there is some money being saved for a holiday instead, I'm just not counting it towards this saving challenge.
So still a good month and I did reach a significant goal - I hit the maximum £4k LISA contribution for 22/23. 😁 Now on to maxing it for 23/24 ready to buy a house next spring.
I have also had a bit of a realisation on just how much I spend on coffees, so have separated out a small budget for that each month to help control it

Next month is another month!
Current mortgage amount: £237,527.35; OP offset fund: £1750
A much better month for me and a grand total so far of 1779.05, putting me a little bit ahead of target of £6000 for the year (but with car insurance to come very soon)
Salary was down this month due to industrial action and next month's will have a larger deduction.
Well done on 14% @tommyendinburgh - can only dream of that pay award!
