  • Morning,

    Can I please join in? I fell off the wagon on the last challenge but am hopping right back on it! I've now decided to save towards a full and final settlement on one of my cards and will set myself a target of £723.08 as that will take me to a total of £2000 saved towards it.

    Afternoon!

    I would like to do a total of £2500 please! Hopefully I'll get 2 or 3 debts completely cleared with that.

    It looks like a scarily high number to me right now, but completely doable if I set my mind to it! I'm committed now!

    Hi
    I would like to join again after having a seriously poor attempt on the last challenge due to a huge unexpected change in circumstances.
    I am aiming to pay £1500 off of various debts and I'd like to start this by making a payment if £500 today.


    £500/£1500
  • I am completely new to this website, but would love to have a go at this challenge.

    The debt I want rid of is my £2600 Overdraft; so that will be what I am working towards over the next 3 months.

    Seems difficult given the amount vs time given that there is also Christmas to budget for, but I am going to give it my best shot and at the very least make a very big dent in it!

    Well going to over stretch myself and set ridiculous figure of 2K includes my spendy credit card which is £560 this month. Hopefully this will make me try harder and keep me out of food shops.

    Direct debit of £50 goes out today towards it so I have made a start:T


    £50/£2000

    Race you towards the finish line folks.:rotfl:
