Wow.

After a frugal month, I've been able to move my DFD forward from the 25th September to the 24th August. That's in two days' time!

I am in shock. I remember updating my figures to 8% paid off and how daunting the task seemed. But budgeting has changed my life completely, and I've paid off £24k in two years whilst having more ££ in my purse and having learnt the real value of a pound.

Good luck to all of you starting your journeys, or coming to the end as I am. This site has allowed me to become financially literate for the first time in my adult life, and I couldn't be more grateful.
