Sorry if I have missed it but is there a challenge about paying off 1% of each debt? Sure someone referred to this on another thread but I can't seem to find it.

KT - I've now added this in to the list at the top, it wasn't on before as I thought it was one person's personal challenge rather than an open challenge.
