    Can you put me down for a modest £450? I'm going onto a part time wage in July plus starting driving lessons so I'm expecting money to be tighter.

    Please can you put me down for £900 please. This will pay off one of my credit cards and the one with the highest interest rate.

    Hi Amara,

    Thank you again for running this challenge. I'm back with a new goal.

    Target: By 13/09/17 I will aim to repay £2000.00

    Last challenge was to clear my cards. I ran into trouble last month with my car, and the long and short of it was, I ended up deciding to buy a new one. I can afford the monthly repayments fine, but at the end of 3 years I either give the car back or repay the final amount (~£5000). I want to pay it off as early as I can.

    Plan: Alongside regular monthly payments:
    • Phase 1: Repay Deposit (at 0%): £2000.00
    • Phase 2: Save £500 - £1000 every '1 debt vs 100 days' Challenge. I will set goal nearer the time depending on budget.
    Good luck everyone!!! Start saving
    Ask do I 'want' or 'need' this before I spend
    Follow your heart & be true to yourself always

    I was nowhere near last attempt. Have had no motivation these last few months

    This time I want to go for some of my £2700 cc at

    £1600

    Our car is finally paid off but had to put an extra £1600 on this one to make up the shortfall. It does mean we have an extra £300 a month though so putting this and the usually £100 to it means there'll be £1200 easily paid off it by September so just need to find an extra £400 in 3 months Need to do some ebaying and sell some books/dvds anyway.
