350 challenge

Options
Hi all

I need some buddies. I have a small but modest challenge. I am hoping to pay off the remaining £350 of my 0% apr Post Office credit card bill in 3 months. I don't need to pay it off so soon but things have got pretty difficult at home and when things get tough I tend to dig deep as it gives me hope. In terms of a plan to pay it off I am thinking about selling a few bits and bobs but mainly I will be looking to take a 2nd job. If anyone would like to join me - I would love it. You of course can do it your way - any helpful tips appreciated.

Thanks

LYM

    Thanks Bobarella :D:D

    Sooo got the debt down to the starting point of £350 on the 1st. Then last night as a starter for eating away at the remaining debt I managed to sell my exercise bike which I bought 2nd hand. I got £10 more than I paid for it! So off to a good start :T

    £290 and counting...

    Hi Jellie. Was on Gumtree - has been a revelation buying and selling stuff on there. I am now scratching around seeing if we have any other bits and bobs to sell but there isn't much left...hmmm...
