  • New to the forum, very happy to be here! Lots of debt to clear so I can look to then buying a house and all that life stuff with my wonderful fianc!e :D. Got my monthly payments set up but want to speed it up with weekly savings, so this thread is perfect!

    Anyway, enough rambling-

    Mon- Lunch £3, Cat food £5, After work social £20
    Tues- Lunch £3, house bits and bobs £10
    Wed - Lunch £3

    So £70 is my opening gambit- hoping to reduce this more and more as the weeks go on!

    Sunday was a NSD:). I'm hoping today will be too. Since I managed to stay in the green last week, I decided to put the difference into my VSP to help that along. (I started the. VSP challenge late). Thanks to the poster that suggested doing something like that in an earlier thread.

    Good luck everyone!

    GC- June £0/£150

    £0/£1500 OD £6.23/£900
