    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

    I like that - Pad Express Choo choo!!!

    yeah newbies - just jump right in with your pads. No hard and fast rules and we're not about kicking you when you're down but reminding you there's life at the end of the tunnel

    For example one of my friends has just learnt to budget - this has taken him 10 years to learn how to budget - I am made up

    and thanks guys my refund got processed but I then went and spent it on a new reduced priced phone I didn't need

    My poor savings

    Have a good week folks

    E

    I believe in the power of PAD
