    No worries rosy - we've all posted on the wrong thread at some point I bet! Good luck with your challenge.

    Hi guys, is the "a payment a day challenge" running for 2012? Sorry if it is and I've missed but would love to give this a go...have seen it on older threads for 2010 etc!!

    Every penny helps and makes you feel good for paying £ off no matter how big or small the amount is!!

    Would be happ to start a thread for this and subtotal everyone's together... Thanks guys

    Hey Tixy! Thanks for this Say hi to every-one on the trolls thread from me!

    This isn't a challenge, so wouldn't be listed here, but do you know if there's a thread totalling how much DFWs cleared in 2011? I usually update it about now but can't seem to find it.

    If you have seen it, please point me in the right direction!

    Hi nicca.

    I haven't seen one this year, Lemon Tree did one for 2010 (http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=2947670), which was mentioned in the weekly email but I haven't noticed an equivalent this year.

    Anyone else spotted it?
    Or if not anyone want to start one?

    Being sent home sick can be useful!

    So, just how much did we pay off in 2011? Add your total to the thread.

    Hi Tixy

    I've forgotten to add the NSD thread for the past couple of months, my excuse is premature senility
