I am TRYING to save 150 a month so will have 5400 ish So far i have saved
Sep 150=300

Anyone else saving for something, wedding, holiday, car etc? Wanna join me on my journey?

Its really hard saving BUT hopefully will be worth it in long run.

We always save a bit towards our annual sun holiday every June, hoping to go to Portugal next year.
We also save towards Emily's college fund, its quite expensive here in Ireland so we started saving when she was in pre-school, not much really, could do with increasing it.
I have a separate savings account myself from when I was single, my lovely Nanny left me some money in her will & I've kept it, for nothing in particular, just a rainy day fund I suppose.

Saving to go to disney in 2 years for my 30th �� About 60 a month but have been saving for a while so will be about 2500 when we need it (only going to paris so not as expensive as florida!)

Other than that we've just bought a house so need to start saving for a new kitchen and bathroom. Just paid for new boiler, radiators, carpets and windows though so it's going to be a while!

Ive got no savings at all right now. Over the last few years I've dipped into savings for things we haven't really needed and now ended up with nothing!
At the moment I'm saving for Christmas, just a couple of hundred a month and buying stuff as I see it now. After Christmas I want to save hard for our first family holiday abroad, OH has never been abroad and it'll be the boys first time too. I miss sunny holidays but OH isn't a big sun lover. We'll hopefully go November time near OH birthday, somewhere warm at that time of year, not sure where.

I'm hoping to get my bathroom re-done followed by my hallway redecorated and a new front door. I feel like we never get anywhere with savings though, something always comes up

Yep not such a pleasant one but for a very worthwhile cause we are passionate about. Need to save for legal fees, sounds like we’d need about 5,000 just for the solicitor. Our parents offered to pay for us, but that’s so so much that I’d rather borrow and re pay. Thinking of asking them if we can spread this over 12 months or so. After that we’ll possibly want to save up for private medical advice, and after that pay towards braces for my teeth. All worthwhile though
