    Debt-free and Proud!
    Am very happy to include some additions to the balance:

    £1.50 fell out of OH's pocket in the car (I did tell him but I think he felt guilty for the 51p "cheese on toast" scenario so he let me have it);

    £6.29 refund from cc company after closing account;
    £0.01 I found in the street, and
    £0.60 refund from DD1 overpaid dinner money.

    So a grand total of £8.40 to add to my current £14.46 = £22.86...Yeah.
    Am going on holiday for a week and there is no internet, TV, clocks (scales!!!) so will be considerably poorer, heavier and happier by the time I return. Have a great week everyone.

    We have more new challengers, welcome :wave:

    Good to see updates and folks getting off the mark already :D

    No more money for me unfortunately. I need to get a few banking issues sorted out then I'm hoping to move my bank account and get some money for doing that. My car insurance is due in October, so hopefully I'll manage to get some cashback for that. Otherwise I think I'll be selling stuff and hopefully matched betting.

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