WOW you are amazing!!!! Keep it up!!!!! :T :T :T
Must admit, i did the PO card thru them, although not sure about the loans/cards tho, might get them all agreed and then i would have sooooooo much temptation, and im nearly at my last loan to pay off!!!! (not going to over pay that one tho, the redemption is a couple of months payments, and its a good rate, so will concentrate on my mortgage once my littlewoods is paid off!)
My overall balance is still below £20k and I am aiming to keep it that way!
We have some cash I need to get in the bank account, hoping to do that today while in town.. actually I could pay cash for my purchases and put what is left in the bank instead of putting it all on my C/card and paying it when I get home!! now there's insight!
Still waiting for my greasypalm payment and another 2 (3 in total) transfers from paypal (£60, £65 & £85.. my £55 cleared on friday) it is all coming off the infernal credit card and maybe a bit off the mortgage!
I also bought boots out of some reduced/discontinued deodourant.. it will all get used and I did get points on that too which is my christmas budget. I am getting pigsback vouchers to use for christmas shopping at boots too.. I just love the fact they sell ELC stuff now!! lol
I am hoping to get some more stuff listed on ebay tomorrow while the children are at church with dad.
You are definitely an inspiration - how do you find time for everything you do with 8 kids?
Congrats on the sub £20 thou!
I've just parcelled up my last 7 ebay parcels.. waiting on 2 payments before the last couple are sent now.
I have another box full to photograph and list which I am hoping to get done shortly.. when I remember where I put the camera!! How come nothing is ever left where I put it???
I can't believe how much I have sold the last 2 months.. I have posted 3 binbags of stuff in the last 2 weeks so in total I have no idea how much has gone.. why is my house not emptier??? The money I have made has paid off one credit card!!!! (american express) Money which would otherwise had to come from our household budget. It is all such a mixture of stuff too!!
My next challenge is paying off my Ace (like studio cards.. I owe them £600 *shame*) Not the highest interest but you can't pay online so I keep forgetting to phone to pay and incur charges for late payments.. so it HAS to go!! I will not pay amy more interest I refuse!!
I am also working on paying odd the debts in my name first.. so I don't have anything to take with me should I decide I don't like the current living arrangement and need out myself.
I have sold masses of stuff over the last 6 months. My house appears no emptier at all! And I can't even remember most of what I sold...shows I didn't really need it in the first place!
Hmmm...it wouldn't really help me to send my children to school if I had eight of them... as that's where I work. DD is in my class so she gets to see me all the time (luckily she thinks that's a good thing!). Anyway i can't see DH agreeing to me having eight children. He's agreed to a third but even that is proving tricky!
