    Hello! Looking forward to 2023… our baby is due in March, so I’d like to aim for a much reduced target of 6k please.

    Hi folks - please can i join this challenge  (did the 10k in 2010 think got to about 8/9k) 
    hoping to go for early/partial retirement 2024 so need 10k extra by December and thats the mortgage finished, thats throwing everything extra already at it this year but the extra 10k would mean its finished and other random debts cleared. Plans for doing this is vinted, facebay etc, cashbacks, inc supermarket sites, topcasback etc, will see about possibly a casual part-time job if no overtime available (seldom get any)

    I'd love to join if that's OK? With a £12k target. 
    I have read through but not sure if I add in once I have actually received the money and it's in the savings account or whether (like for overtime for example) I do it when I work the hours? Is it personal preference or is there a fixed/best way?
    I think I'll join a few of the other challenges to help me on my way too!

    Happy new year! 

    Could I join again please. I was number 47 last year (I think!). I didn't quite reach my target but would still like to go for the £12k target.

    @Kirsten1985 I generally count things once I've banked them as I find it easier to keep track of.
