Default I am now debt free!

Wahey! I posted a thread about three months ago about wanting to get debt free, and I've done it! Through hard work, scrimping, saving and this wonderful site, me and my partner have raised £8550 - enough to pay off all of our debt

Chuffed to bits! We were lucky in one way - we got a £2200 tax rebate and I got a considerable payrise, but still - three months chuffed!
