    I'd like to join in again in 2017 please. My MFW2016 number was #75 - happy to keep it if it's free. I'll set myself a target of £1,200 again. Due a baby, so it might be a challenge, but I'll give it a good go.
    Peace ☮️

    Hi

    Just logged on for the 1st time in a while (thought you had changed your diary name :eek: and were aiming to pay your mortgage off next year :j ) However,

    Would like to join once again and have a target of £2,400 this year (all my 10% allowance will allow :( )
    However may add a savings target to that once reached :) lets see how it goes.

    Many thanks - oh, and if available would like to keep my no. 27. Let the overpayments begin . . . . . .
    Always have 00.00 at the end of your mortgage and one day it will all be 0's :dance:

  • Hi. I'd love to join this thread. My aim is to overpay £200 a month next year as a minimum. I need motivation to stop spending on trivialities and reign in our bills. i already meal plan but have slipped a bit over the past year overall and could use some motivation. Thank you, FF3 x
    Mortgage: £46,500 @ 1.97% (5 years left, aim for 3)

    Hi, target worked out.

    I'll be reducing my mortgage from 157k to 135k.

    Just 4.3k of that will be from regular payments netted with interest - no wonder it takes people 30 years!

    My OP target is therefore 17.7k! (My OP allowance is £15.7, so i'm combining a £2k savings target with that too) :)

    Cheers,

    Man vs Mortgage
    Baby Step 1 - £1k Emergency Fund - COMPLETE
    Baby Step 2 - Pay off all debts except the Mortgage - £9,326 to go
    Baby Step 3 - Save 6 months of expenses into full Emergency Fund - £4,300 to go

    Baby Step 4 - Put 15% into Pension
    Baby Step 6 - Pay off the Mortgage early
    Baby Step 7 - Live like no-one else :D

    May I join please? I've been lurking on the forum for years and have been gently overpaying since I got my mortgage 3 years ago. Will be trying to up OPs a bit this year so have a target of £2664.
