  • Personally id throw it straight at the debt ,then pretty much every penny is yours and your float.I would not owe any one a penny.Its much more rewarding being paid to have money.(interest etc);) (it has to count either way)
    Your float can then grow by at least 100 a week without having to think about some-one else.

    Edit bellamy did it yeah.

    I think I will keep it out in the float. In I really pull my finger out - which I am doing - the % ROI from MBing will out-weigh the % interest.

    The idea is (as always) - less over-analyising, just constant action.

    I'm still in the process of organising everything so I know exactly what I am doing day to day.

    So how often are you going to bump us with your progress, and what kind of format are you going to have?

    Are you going to have something like totals for Cashback/MB pending/received or ...

    I am not 100% sure yet. I think the format will work itself out over the first few weeks.

    I think I will give a breakdown of daily earnings required, percentage gained in week, a basic breakdown of where it came from (MBing, salary, cashback, 2nd job, random bequeathment etc).

    Personal goals will probably be harder to guage, so maybe a little narrative regarding there progress will be better.

    If there is anything you would like added, changed etc, please feel free. As i said, this is about entertainment, fun and knowledge as much as anything else.

    I feel collate some facts/goals tonight and try and get the first post proper done and update the rolling post.

    Just a thought, but you could always take a punt on the lottery?

    £5 cashback on quidco for first ticket, so jsut get 1, and hopefully tracks you are at least £4 up?

    if not then your not much further away from your target!

    BTW you guys will just have to accept my typos on this thread. I type fast as I am at work or generally busy.

    I would go back and correct them but I would lose the "thanks" at the bottom of the post, and I am far too cyber-vain for that!

    It's all good!

    I will be doing ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING at all to make the £50K.

    I've not had a chance. I was so busy at work today it was stupid, and I got almost no sleep last night at all as I was up late working on things. I got a bit of MBing done tonight - I will try and post an update before I go to bed.

    I pick up the cheque tomorrow! :j :j :j
