    Hey Folks

    I'm signing up for Gold, I am aiming to clear my egg card by Christmas (currently £1500) and will be putting all my earnings towards paying that off. I'll be paying it off as I earn though to avoid too much interest!

    Good luck everyone, now going to hunt down the back off the sofa so I can make a start!

    Hope

    ps. Thanks gwen
    LBM 03/07 £44k:eek: DFD 31/12/17 :A 12/17 £2545.50
    Credit Card £2500.00 & Next £45.00
    Savings = £81.21 & Help To Buy ISA = £4700.00

    great idea - can I join for bronze please.

    i wont actually start until Aug as I'm doing make £5 a day for july (not so sucessfully!!) so will concentrate on that till the end of the month then push for this.

    More challengers, excellent! :j

    I've just been watching a programme on iplayer called 'How to beat tough times' which has scared me :eek::eek:

    My £5 from vodafone has tracked, which is good :beer: It all helps :D

    Are people mainly using the extra money to pay off debts or for other things? I need to save up to pay for my holidays coming up. I don't intend to make either expensive, but I have a few days in Europe booked and a week in a cottage with family. Then I'll concentrate on paying off my credit card, then saving up for the house renovations I need to get done.

    I'm wondering if going for a silver cracker is actually realistic as I have a busy few months ahead, but I'll leave it as that for the time being and if it looks totally unrealistic in a couple of months, I can think again.

    Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending

    Hi All

    Can I join please? Will aim for silver - brother gave me £200 he owed me the other day :beer: (was going to go for bronze but bro's cheque will boost it)
  • Hi All, had a right good rummage around the house and found £14.46 in "spare" money around the house. To be fair most of this was in a cash box that I had completely forgotten about last time I did a car boot sale. Does this count? I really hope so, it felt good that I have actually got started!!! There was 51p which my partner cheekily left by the bed this morning, claiming this was "for last night". I am assuming that he meant the cheese on toast I made him for supper!!!
  • Hi can i join please i would like to have a go at Silver. :)
