This challenge is a continuation of the very successful 'Pay Off as much as you can' challenge 2012.

Link to 2012 thread: http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/....php?t=3642065

In 2012 we managed to pay a total of: £410,030.31 :T :j

The whole point of this challenge is that there is no set amount you can aim to pay off - you set your own target - be it £5 or £500,000.

Everyone is welcome :) and every pound and penny counts.

If you want to join in and set yourself a target let me know and I'll add you to the list.

If you want me to update your total, post it in either of the two formats:

£548 paid off so far
or
£548/£5000 paid.

I don't mind what colours by the way :rotfl:, but if you were able to make it bigger or in colour then that would be great. (Click on 'go advanced' for those who are not sure how to do it). If it's like that I can clearly see it is a total and will add it to the first page.

I will update the totals paid at the beginning of each month. I count all payments posted up to midnight on the last day of the month as being included in that month. Anything posted after counts for the following month.

Happy debtbusting everyone! :beer:

    I will make my goal £10,000 again please. I should have £14k left on my loan and would like to think I could pay it all off but in reality with overpayments will probably manage £8k so £10k is a good goal. It will still be reducing the loan down by nearly 2 years in the long run.
  • I would like to join please, im going to aim for £15,000 which will still leave a massive £18,500 to tackle in 2014. Me and hubby are so fed up of this debt around are necks, we would love eventually to buy a house, but at the moment this seems an eternity away. We have 5 children so sticking to a budget is going to be hard but determined to give it a good go.

    Good luck everyone
