    Smile March Savings Challenge :)

    Hey guys,

    I would love to build up a little emergency savings pot, and thought maybe a monthly goal would help keep me on track.

    My goal is 2000 by the end of the year which works out at 200 a month.

    So I'm off to start looking for things to chuck on eBay and to check out quidco etc.

    Does anyone want to join me? It can be for anything, maybe you have a little holiday coming up, or a night out, or you want a new computer etc

    There is no failing, it's not a competition, all about ideas, tips, advice and support xx
    Happy Holidays and sparty like this.

    I'm in, at the mo I save money for our holidays, but it looks like some of my savings will be going in our Spanish account, I need about 2500 for Peru in Sept and that is my goal. I know you posted a link for selling books so I'm going to look at that over the nxt few weekends, I'm going to see if there is anything I can sell on eBay but don't think so.

    if anyone hears when there is a fee free weekend on eBay I'd love to know about it.

    HAPPY SAVING

    I want to save for a weekend away with my sister and another friend. I need 300ish so that will be my target. But bf and I are concentrating a lot on paying our debts at the moment so it's gonna be a slow journey to get there.

    Shall I start a general money thread for March to keep this separate??

    Well it was going to be June/July but my sister now wants to postpone to October as her childcare costs go down in September.

    I think the plan is to put the money aside so that we can book it when we see something we like.

    So it will be up to 200 for an all inclusive weekend and a bit of spending money as well. We are planning to do it on a budget which is good lol.
