We’ve updated the blog about an easy way to save £1,000 in one year….
Remember, if you haven’t started this challenge yet, it’s never too late – start now!
Here’s how some of us got on in January:
HoneyBea – Decided to do this as a monthly amount to match the timing of income – thanks for updating the helpful chart – it suggests how much you can put aside monthly now! So I’ve done the January amount – it’s only £15 so that was easy. Am a bit worried about how I will keep my hands of the larger amounts suggested to save over later months so I might put a bit more aside now… this is exciting!!!!
Copperz – £125 : I’m still going with the large lumps every month. I’ll probably save £100 each month until November – this money is going to be presents for the family and a holiday next year. I don’t think I need to do thisby standing order – I do mobile banking … and I never forget things like this.
Kate – £60 so far: I’m retired but I want to do this challenge and so I’m saving £20 each week
Anonymous Pete – I still think this savings method is fundamentally flawed and should be adjusted…. I haven’t saved anything yet – I’m looking at different options on savings that are out there
Anonymous 2 – I saved some money but the kids need shoes and I’ve bought a few things for the house and then I loaned some to a friend at work – hopefully I’ll get it back next month…
How would you do this challenge?
