    Hi Amara

    My target for this challenge is £520 which will see the end of a debt that is showing as a default on my record.

    I know this is cheating a little but tomorrow I'll be banking £10 that I've saved up in 20p.

    Hi Amara

    Thank you for running this challenge.

    Please count me in again and put me down for £1000.

    The last challenge I managed to clear a dreaded 29.9% store card so this time I will make a dent in a loan, approx. balance £2100 although it only has 12 months to run...it's days are numbered thanks to this challenge.

    Tomorrow I am paying in £100 to start me off.

    Good luck to everyone...we can do this!!!

    Hi Amara

    Thanks for running the challenge again.

    I have a target of £1193 which is probably pushing it but I want to pay off what I didn't manage last time and clear another card.

    I have a few days overtime coming up which should give me a head start and a cashback payment, otherwise I think it would be lower.

    Roll on the 10th, well roll on payday as I'm skint until then.

    Hi folks!
    To these ones, who already started paying: I admire your dedication, but I'll update your statuses on 10th, when challenge really starts, to give everyone equal chances.

    Hello Amara and fellow challengers

    I would like to join, to aim to have an emergency fund of a 1000 pounds.

    (and maybe aim to pay back my car insurance what ever that is)

    thanks for running the challenge again XX
