    Payment A Day Chapter 18

    Payment A Day Chapter 18 22nd Jan 17 at 3:05 PM
    *The principles of PADding*

    Emily Hallett started a fantastic thread called 'a payment a day' which you can find via going to this webpage (sorry it won't work for me right now)

    The thread is extremely supportive and friendly, with lots of madness and smileys to boot! It is ever increasing, which is why having hit 200 pages, challenge is continuing on a brand new thread.

    The principle of the idea is that you pay any extra money you have against a debt to clear it a little bit quicker. Not everyone makes a daily payment, but instead they save money to make a lump sum at the end of the month. You can do it anyway you want to, but join the thread and let us know how you are getting on.

    Some PaD-ers have cleared their debts and are now focusing on saving following the same principal, so they still post on the thread. Anyone is welcome to join in at anytime.

    Best wishes to everyone

    PS. Here are the rules


    *The Rules*
    1) To assist the monthly 'counter-upper' please post your PaD in Bold, colour, large, or all three
    2) Once you join, you cannot leave

    Just a bank round down for me today. £3.61 off my cc.

    Gutted to see my cc balance somewhat higher than what I had calculated myself. So I've been back through my cc statement, my bank statement and what I've posted on here to find that on 4-5 occasions I've posted on here, and not followed it up with an actual payment. Means I'm £40 lower than I thought I was.
    Credit Card: 1st Aug 2017 --> £1,371.04 NOW --> £1,077.53
    Make a Payment a Day: £213.51 in Aug, £80.00 in Sep
    Make £200 September Challenge: £258.87 / £200 (£613.31 since Aug '17)
