    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.
