    Quick question: do (your own, not employer's) contributions to pension also count?

    Personally, I would definitely count both my contributions and my employer's as soon as they were vested, since that's undoubtedly your money that you're saving for a different stage in your life. :)

    SF, can you put me in for £18k please? Thanks for running this great challenge!
  • Sign me up for £12k please.

    Could I join please? This is the first year I've been debt free and can really focus on saving. :j

    I'll go for the full £12k although it's probably not attainable - I prefer to aim high. :A

    I bombed out last year, I spent a large amount in the second quarter on a holiday/car repairs and worked for the rest of the year to get it back. I couldn't face updating as I felt like a bit of a failure but next year I'm coming back strong!

    Ideally I would love to save £17k but I'm going to go for £12k
