    Hello everyone,

    Here is my first Friday update for the 2024 challenge.

    This week my random number picker app gave me:
    304, 221, 158, 205, 121, 110 and 320 = 1439 so £14.39 going into the pot.

    I'm not sure what number I am yet as @enthusiasticsaver hasn't confirmed.
    Will update with bold once I know.
    Thanks all :)

    Good morning @Coxy11

    I am slightly confused so can you clarify?  This challenge 2024 does not start until 1 January 2024 but your December contributions for 2023 are empty so you have not finished the current years challenge.  Did you mean to post on this thread or the current challenge thread? 

    I have the total saved in 2023 for you as £587.92 against a target of £667.95.

  • Hi @enthusiasticsaver , can you please add me for 2024. Is it possible to have two numbers? Doing the challenge twice. Saving for big trip to Aus as was this years challenge and also saving to take the kids away next christmas. Not quite sure how i'll get on but lets see! Thanks for running the challenge. This year was the first year i'll fully complete it!
    I think it will be too confusing to give you 2 numbers. Just double the amount or maybe look at the savings challenge on the saving forum where you set your own target? I run that one too. It is called Save £12k in 2024 but it doesn’t have to be £12k. 

    Exciting year for you next year. 

    Hi @enthusiasticsaver, I was in the 12k save challenge for many years but ducked out this year as I was a terrible saver.

    If its easier just put me down for one challenge please?

    Merry Christmas Queenie :)
