    Please could I join? My target is 12,000 which is achievable but still going to be difficult.

    I plan to continue with frugal living and working extra. I have also joined the make 2,019 challenge to help reach my target.

    12,000 was a little too ambitious in 2018

    I am in. It is my dissertation year of my degree, so I am going to let saving take a back seat until May when that is handed in. However, I should also be starting proper full time work come October, so saving can happen more then. I am going to keep my target at 3,000, but it will be unequal through the year again. Thanks SF!

    Hello


    Could I have a goal of 6k please, last years was too optimistic and as I have never saved 6k it'll still be something to focus on.


    Many thanks

    Please sign me up again.6000
    Have learnt so much about my saving and spending habits in the last year.
    A more realistic 6K this time, to build up my cash buffer / emergency fund.
    Thank you for running this.
