Hope you all had great weekends!
It would be really great to understand what kind of money goals everyone was working towards at the moment? Or even if setting goals/ targets is something you like to do?!
For me, my next big financial goal is saving enough money to put down a deposit on a London flat
@rebekah - I’ve just completed that goal and it’s good fun but hard work.
My current goal is 6 months salary saved just in case. I have always kept a little aside just in case, but Covid-19 despite largely not affecting the company I work at, got me worrying about “what if” suddenly I wasn’t able to work or was furloughed.
Next up after that is buying a little boat to get back on the water.
@jase Six months salary sounds like a really solid savings goal
I think the “what if” scenario has been playing on a lot of people’s minds lately! Job security is something that most people probably haven’t had to think about too much, but at the moment it could happen to anyone…
And a little boat what kind of boat would you get? and where would you take it?
I am a sailor, but I’m not going to buy another sail boat, I can’t afford to waste that amount of money. I want a little speed boat for the Thames, but the nice ones (without holes) are a little pricey, so I may need to buy an older one and repair it a little.
Haha my knowledge of boats is pretty limited, but I never knew people sold boats with holes in them
Amazing way to get a bargain if you know how to fix them up though!
Nobody said they would tell you the holes were there… That’s part of the fun! But only in warm weather.
