    well done its great to hear from sum1 who has made it out the other side of a debt mountain! gives us all hope :)
  • Well done you :j it must be such a relief!

    I'd say carry on paying what you do towards your loan and stick any extra you can afford into a savings account each month in the hope of a full and final... that way you'll get rid of them quicker! :T

    Aw that's such a nice post, well done. Today was an NSD for me, hurray.
  • WELL DONE YOU! It's a great feeling, I paid off all my credit cards almost a year ago now and am still debt free apart from the old mortgage and car loan. This site was a great support and it got me through those bad times. It's still hard work to resist the temptations but it's worth it. We are going on hol in a few weeks paid for in full-far more enjoyable when you haven't just shoved it on the rcedit card. Keep it up! Your post will be inspirational to many-like others have said I loved reading the success stories.

    Well done MP! I'm the same, trying to get debt free but as no-one knows (apart from on here), I will have no-one to celebrate with! Enjoy the holiday, sounds fab and I bet you can do it MSE style!
