    Hi everyone and Ellie,

    First time ever post to any forum in the world and this seems a good place to start.

    I've been reading the various posts on the MSE website since March after discovering the shocking state of my credit file ( well I knew how bad it was so I shouldn't have been shocked really). I generally browsed the credit ratings and other sections. Now I've started looking at debt-free type posts and think this one is a fantastic idea.

    With just over 2 months of the challenge to go I'm assumimg it's too late to join for this year?

    Meanwhile, really enjoying the inspirational posts.

    A few more pounds for me, should be getting a boost soon because M&S vouchers may be on the way (disappeared from online account) and I've purchased something from work which will involve Boots points. I now have four purchases not tracked on TCB so will have to sit and submit claims for them - need to rein it all in for Xmas :rotfl:

    Hello and Welcome :)
    It's never too late MsVincy, you've got a couple of months to squirrel some away and longer if you keep going into December. Some of us save from 1st November each year but most of us from 1st December.
    If I start buying presents earlier I don't detract from my overall total because it's being spent on the things I saved it for. (Clear as mud but I know what I mean!!;))

    Thanks for the greeting triple chocolate.

    In that case I'll make a start now until end of November when I'll then start again. I won't go for a fixed amount over the next 2 months - I'll just see how much I can save until the challenge ends.
