    The "Save 12k in 2018" Thread! 5th Dec 17 at 9:10 PM
    So, the title is pretty self explanatory, but this is the place to be in 2018 it's that time of year, again!

    In 2018, the aim is to save 12k (or, any other amount if you like) from 1st January 2018 til 31st December 2018. I know it's early, but it gives you the time to plan for how you are going to do it.

    #70 declaring 225 for September. Feels good to see the total amount increasing, albeit at a slower rate than I would have liked. Onwards and upwards....

    Had a lovely surprise at work - a bonus.
    Saving for the month 220 + 26 + 2250 = 2496

    4096 + 2496 = 6592 for the year.
    Target exceeded.
    Yay!
    New target 8000
