  • :rotfl:I really like this and would like to join in! - after all our card balances were once an assortment of random purchases! I will look through my statement when I get home tonight and pick my first "victim".

    Hopefully this will also deter me from adding new items!:rotfl:

  • Hi
    fab idea and one that will motivate me I'm sure, so I'd like to sign up. My first item is in my signature. I'm also joining the Payment a Day challenge and £10K in 2010, so I'm really hoping that this will keep me going. Thanks and good luck Janey
