Approx 15k debt.. This is it this time.. Debt free by 30! (8 months away)

I have previously been on here years ago when I first decided to become debt free.. but that did not go to plan..

Long story but about 18 months ago I changed careers and took a 7.5k wage cut so am now in a worse position that years ago. I think I have about 15k debt, but have not paid some cards for a while so not completely sure :eek:

Today is the beginning of paying all this debt off, on I figure out how much I actually owe!

Wish me luck!
March 2013 LBM so here goes....PAID OFF £6944! Unfortunately have built it all back up again! Amounts to be added up soon! Scare myself into action! 30/05/2018 LBM 2

  • So far tonight I have found details for 5 debts and paid a few pounds off of each to round them to the nearest pound! Hate them sitting with pence..


    Total £16,187.26
    Paid £37.26

    New balance - £16,137
    More than I thought and I know there are still others to add.. My goal is maybe not realistic :rotfl:

    Once you have all the figures and information you can formulate a plan. The lovely people at one of the debt charities are on hand if you need it.
    Well done for starting your debt free journey.
    Good luck!
    It will all be ok in the end - if it's not ok, then it's not the end!
