    Right, I've just finished paying off a small overdraft at 25 a month, and have managed to live without this very reasonably, so I'm thinking what would be most useful to do with this 25 a month now. I could:

    a) put it into my e-isa which has a very attractive interest rate, until such time as I have enough to offer f+f to my 4 outstanding creditors

    b) add it to my dmp payments (reducing dfd from 6 years to less than 4)

    c) manually snowball my debts in addition to my dmp (eg. i have a 130 argos card thats only getting 5 a month from DMP, but with cash injection each month could be gone in 5 months, then add it onto the highest priority debt after this)

    Your opinions would be most grateful. I know there is justification for all three options, but I'd like the one that will make my debt shrink the fastest!!!
