    Just curious as weve just started saving and we put away 800/1000 per month. How long did you save for? Were hoping 10 months time we will be ready....

    That is an amazing amount of money to put away! Well done!

    I can't wait to start saving for a mortgage, I have about £500 saved so far lol and that is for life after baby is born! xx

    How exciting, I would need £40,000 plus to buy where I live as me and my partner could only get a £150,000 mortgage between us so we would need to save about 40 grand before we even start asking for a mortgage!

    Good luck, I would love to be in your position!

    You're very good at saving! Don't think I could manage that :0 when I was saving for a place me and my husband contributed around £200 each a month. It was tough but helped us move quite quickly!

    We were lucky enough to inherit our deposit and we used £20k and then some towards fees and furniture etc. My friend who is currently saving is aiming for about £15k so with the amount you're saving each month you're doing really well! x
