    Earning about £700 soon to be £800 due to pay rise
    ATM paying off about £200 pm, which is salary plus selling things

    This will fall to a more stable £150 (bizarrely) when I earn more as I would like to replace some of my horrible old clothes and also join the college gym. And do some more nice things :)

    So about 33%

    earn 26.5K

    owe £6355.55 on HSBC loan, £400 overdraft and £400 on egg card.

    I save £500 a month so I can pay off the loan at the end of the year. the overdraft and egg card are very low interest so just paying the minimum on the egg card and will tackle early next year.

    Just wanna get that loan cleared!!!!

    Reclaimed my bank charges - got £250 back from HSBC and £88 from First Direct :)
  • total income approx £55K, debt is bout 60% of that, pay off between £700-900 per month.

  • Well I earn about £1,380 a month net.

    Debt is £24,780.68.

    Last year I paid an average of £850 odd a month to debts. But this included money from ebay, matched betting, reclaimed bank charges.

    I normally pay around the £750 mark a month.

    I only earn £7,200 per year which amounts to £150 per week. I don't claim any benefit and I have 2 children. I am mortgage free and now debt free. When I was paying my mortgage and debts I was paying about £90 per week out on them.
