We did it - we hit the savings target for the month and squirrelled away £755.17 for our future.
It was a bit of a struggle towards the end of the month, but I am so pleased that it has been achieved.
I have started on February's savings by putting the £158 monthly Council Tax payment into the savings account: I budget for 12 payments, but of course we only make 10 to the council, so the other two are ready for the savings pot. I have also added the £50 to the Travel Fund for the EFG's next School bus pass, which means we have made a good start on February's total. £208 down, only £542 to go - and it is a shorter month, so it might be easier.
I will do the end of month analysis over the weekend, as I have to get going now - busy day ahead and the FH still in bed. I had 90 minutes this morning in the EFG's bed, and it was bliss - I slept!
