  • Thanks for the add, I'm going for the pound one. I'm on week 5 however I've worked it out over the year that some weeks I will pay from the higher amounts and other weeks will be lower depending upon paydays and bills coming out etc. so I won't be following a 'traditional' 1-52 iyswim.


    If I post funny amounts up it's because I'm paying to suit my income dates. I need the motivation and support :)

    Evening all

    Thank you for the new thread Mrs Cheshire

    I'm already on the list. But I went AWOL during last years challenge as I just didn't have enough money to keep with it. However I will try again his year but going for the 50p challenge, as Im already doing the £1 a day challenge too.
