yay so excited!!!

So I decided last month to start setting a monthly goal to reduce my overdraft by the last day of the month

My overdraft as of 30th June was a depressing £1234.15 so for july I set my aim as 'reduce my overdraft by 31st july to £1100' Well on the 31st July my overdraft was ........................ drum roll please .................... £972.36! So not only did I reach my goal but I also kicked it's butt by another £130!!!

My August goal is 'reduce my overdraft by August 31st to £850' Fingers crossed for a good month!
