Minnie's Getting Life Sorted Diary

I'm starting a new diary and it will not only focus on getting debt free, as it will cover everything in my life including my aims.

Getting debt free
Getting qualified to do the job that I want
Declutter the house
Decorate the house
Help DH to start his own business

I think my current debt is £7500 but I will need to recalculate and check this figure.

At the moment I am doing a prep course, which should help me to get onto the course that I need to do in order to get qualified.

I really need to get the house decluttered and decorated, as been in over 2 years and not really done anything.

    I think I've started a trend. I saw your first post and thought someone copied mine until I started reading it lol.

    Your list of things seem to be a lot longer than mine lol. Although I haven't collated what else needs doing in my life! Like tidying my mess of a room for example.
