Might sound very crazy but between the two of us on average we’re putting away 4k every month. Some months are more but not over 5k.

None, we have a mortgage. Would be stupid to make savings when that money can go onto the mortgage and save us more in the end than ‘savings’.

Same here, we keep a bit of buffer in our everyday account incase of say the washing machine breaking and needing a new one etc. But we don't have 'savings' we pay double on our mortgage instead.
