Saving 3300 diary


I don't know if anyone will be interested in reading this but I have a huge challenge and need somewhere to track my progress, I thought MoneySavingExpert would be the best place for it.

The bad news is my partner is moving to Australia any day now (as soon as his visa comes through) for work and has asked me to go with him.

Unfortunately I have 2 x Credit Cards, 1 x Loan and need 2 x month salary to show the Australian Government that I can support myself and gain a VISA.

I therefore need to clear credit cards, loan and save for VISA before I can join my boyfriend in Australia.

Credit Card 1 - 2254.04
Credit Card 2 - 1873.88
Loan - 2180.97
Overdraft - 168.74
2 x Salary - 2595.02

= 9072.65


ISA 5200.24
Easy Access 600

= 5800.24

Remainder to save 3272.41

I can do it by June 2012 but that would mean not seeing my partner for 6 months so looking to do it a lot lot lot quicker so I can join him.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
