    Hi all
    Not paid anything further from this as I've had a difficult month and nothing to spare. I've managed to make payments on everything which is good but nothing to throw extra at it.

    The good thing is that all Xmas presents have now been bought and so when I get paid at the end of this month I don't have any to worry about.

    I'm not sure how well I am going to do for the rest of the challenge but I am certainly going to throw myself at everything next year. My end goal was to have credit cards, catalogues and loan all paid off in 31 months as this is how long the loan has left on it. I feel this is doable but I really want to try and get this paid sooner than then.

    My original goal was to be debt free apart from mortgage by the time I am 40 and I have just turned 36 so that goal is still in sight. I will the focus on making overpayments on my mortgage as I certainly don't want to be paying that off right up to me retiring. Once I have no debts this is certainly achievable given what I am paying on my debts now.

    Sorry for the long post but I am still here and reading everyone's post and cheering everyone on.

    Thrown £85 at my current spendy credit card. £1366.71/2000

    Unfortunately have to buy PVC doors in the next few weeks not budgeted for- so going to be super frugal - not spending especially not on Black Friday.
