    Hi there have been eagerly awaiting the end of the previous challenge to sign up for the next one.

    Well done everyone and fab challenge.

    I am going to commit to clearing £316.60 Its not the biggest amount but it has the highest interest rate and will feel better psychologically once it is gone.

    At the moment my snowball says it will be paid up March '16 but hopefully sooner with this challenge.

    Thanks
    NST#14/2

    I'm in as well.

    My target is £521 which will clear the remaining debt off my challenge 19 debt and half of the next debt to be swept up.

    I do have one question though. The debt that I want to use Challenge 20 for is on a sort of repayment plan, practically on zero interest.

    If I pay the money directly to the debt, then I'm worried they bump up the interest rate so would you save the money until I can clear it entirely?

    could i join in please, i am paying off a larger debt as part of pay by xmas challenge but i want to run one of my smaller debts in this challenge to help clear another bill.

    i need to clear £531 so £5.31 a day. hoping to do this through clearing out and selling a lot of the really useful things ( rubbish and tatt ) that i bought throughout the years.

    Could I join please? I have been on a MSE sabbatical for a while as the Internet was taking over my life but I have taken my eye off the ball. One of the early versions of this challenge helped me clear a debt and when I have tried other times I have failed. I was going to try a very small debt of £136 but have decided to go for a higher one of £576.56 which will be £5.76 per day. I really need to start hitting this debt hard.

    At the end of November I will have paid off a loan and can start hitting the bigger card debts.
