Hello :j

Following on from a post of mine called "I need a friend" a whole new "competition/challenge" was borne.

Now lots of people on this site are FANTASTIC, their motivation, upbeat nature and budgetting skills are the envy of many, and then theres a few others...

Those who for one reason or another just cant get on top of that spending diary, who always find a "better" use for that extra bit of change, and who can always find an excuse to spend a fortune in Primark (maybe thats just me:confused: )

So we need motivating, we need a regular kick up the rear to get moving and we need someone/or many people to shout at us and say STAY OUT OF PRIMARK!(again might just be me!)

Now noone is being mean by shouting at another so leave your feelings at the door with your shoes.
It takes a lot to be honest with yourself about whether or not you're doing all that you can, so I'm signing up for (well mannered) words of motivation, to see me get 15k of my outstanding debt paid off...

Day One : 17th October

  • Can I report for duty???

    We have about 16k to pay off.... and I am the "money manager" in the household... so the more I pay off the more impressed my OH will be :D

    Also I want to enrol on some OU courses soon, so need to get rid of the money I owe them first :rolleyes: (oops)
