    I want to play again now that we've sorted out the remortgage.

    My goal is £6000. £4800 will come from our built in OPs, which gives me the challenge of finding an additional £1200 over the course of the year.

    Hi, number 105 here, thanks so much for doing this again really helped me op for 2015 so would like to keep it up for 2016. Can you put a target of £4500 this year for me.

    Unfortunately is a lower target than last year as circumstances have changed slightly but hope this will keep me on track.

  • Lovely to see this thread up and running.

    Can we keep #10 please.

    We have a complex year ahead work wise which is likely to see a reduction in earnings. So a £5000 target for us please. Not sure if we'll make that but may as well set the target on the high side

    Would like to join you all. Target for me will be £3000, and have a feeling it will be a slow start.

    Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and all the best for 2016 when it comes.
    Always have 00.00 at the end of your mortgage and one day it will all be 0's :dance:
