    Hi everyone :)
    Hope you have all had a lovely day.
    I have worked it out that to complete this challenge I need to "raise" £34 a day. That is not going to happen!!
    I should have £200 that I can pay off my card tomorrow and after that I have no idea how I am going to do this!! Any ideas will be greatly received :)

    Anything you can sell on eBay?
    Lloyds OD / Natwest OD / PO CC / Wescott / Argos Card / JD Williams cleared :) thanks to the 1 debt v 100 day challenge

    I do have to have a good clear out so fingers crossed I can find lots of bits.

    I will check out the survey sites too. Thanks both :)

    Sounds obvious, but second job? Walking dogs? Pet sitting?

    Just a quick update to my progress so far. I have started a daily check over my bank account following spends and direct debits and carried out rounding down transfers to the savings account attached to my online banking. I will pay these off my debt on a monthly basis.

    Progress so far is......£19.62
    I have made a few changes to my spending habits which is helping with both of my challenges and I'm generally feeling positive to get these money issues under control.
    Faced my debts in 2012 & 2013 again in 2017 now hitting it in 2018!

    Thanks Amara I might increase my target but I'll hold fire at the moment as I'm thinking of booking a holiday instead :)

    Oh and a second job is a good idea jojitsui. I worked in McDs one or two days a week and this part funded my new bathroom/central heating system and the rewiring of my house. I absolutely hated the job but it was necessary to get the home improvements done even more so when I fell pregnant. The extra cash would have taken a substantial amount off my debt if I had been able to use it towards that.
