    Can I be a late joiner?

    By 13.09.17 I'd like to have paid off £780.

    It's a bit ambitious but I know I can do it

    Another 50 pounds off for me. 370/1400. Horrified that I need to clear 500 pounds on my spendy cc this month before I can get stuck into this, not a big shopping spree mainly car expense last month. Oh well no point moaning.

    Onwards and upwards ;-)

    Evening All...

    So - my target this challenge was as follows:

    Target: By 13/09/17 I will aim to repay £2000.00
    • 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.
    Things didn't go quite as planned. When I attempted to move my £2000 on to my new 0% interest card - it wouldn't let me. Apparently cards owned by 'Newday' which my Amazon Card is aren't transferable! What a git. Suddenly I was faced with interest charges I hadn't counted on. Best laid plans... right?

    Fate has been kind - just when I needed it most. My family out the blue - decided to gift me and my siblings with some money. Together with money I had saved in an EF I have been able to clear it TOTALLY!!!

    So - I am now progressing on to Phase 2:

    Amara - My new challenge for the remainder of this is to £500.00. Could you amend my goal as £2000 - completed. Additional £500 target added - Thank you!

    Keep up the good work everyone
    Repay Car : Phase 2 : £0/£500 by 13/09
    Follow your heart & be true to yourself always
    Help To Buy ISA = £4283.65. EF = £750/£4500
    NST July : NSD=13/16 : Food £100.00/£100 : Spends £100/£100
    365 Day 1p Challenge = £408.57/£667.95. £1.00 a Day = £212.00/£365.00
    Spiritual Practice =13/31. Exercise Sessions 16/14. Cash Bonus = £25/£150 + £219/£399
