    Lets Do This...... 17th Oct 16 at 3:43 PM
    I got a letter today from aqua saying they are increasing my rate to 49.90% from 35.% and it got me thinking I am just giving my money away, and its going to stop,
    I have Just been reading some posts from here, and its something I want to do, I am going to include my mortgage as well,

    MY DEBT:
    Mortgage: 44k

    Aqua £ 1,266 / £ 1,266
    Marbles £ 1,466 / £ 1,466
    Capital One £ 185 / £ 185
    Barclaycard £ 951 / £ 951

    Personal loans:
    black horse £1250 / £1250

    I'm not going to give myself a time limit but hoping to do it in 3 years
    I will let you know how I get on.
