How much you'll likely pay from AprilMSE Tools
Just read about your achievement in my MSE email. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! You're an inspiration. :A
I too have a ridiculous amount of CC debt - not spent on anything extravagant - it just builds up. I also have student loans from being a mature student training to be a teacher - no jobs in my part of the country so not a lot of money coming in - single parent too and having "discussions" with tax credits over alleged overpayment. :mad:
BUT, through MSE, I've got 0% interest and low interest 'life of balance' deals - and no longer make the mistake of spending on these cards
I'm now making a real effort to get debt free, though it's going to take some time. Your story is a real incentive. Thank you.
It's cool being a single parent and mature student, but I don't agree that they should make you go into debt with student loans before you can claim any dependent grant, seems ridiculous to me as I just didn't want a loan in the first place......hey ho, that's the way of the world eh :rolleyes:
As I've said before if you want any support, let me know and good luck with the rest of the debt reduction :j
