Just wanted to say 'Thanks'

Thanks you all for the great advice/tips etc on MSE!

My debt is minor compared to most people posting on here, ie i have no mortgage etc.....but it was/is a major concern for me as income isn't that high....hubby is working fulltime, but i'm a SAHM of 2 kiddies.....


We seem to have turned a corner, have a good grip on finances now....not saving anything yet but at least bills/debts are reducing :D

My greatest reduction so far is my bt bill (awww poor bt ;) )

in Jan it was £298.00 for that quarter....that included arrears not covered but DD, and broadband.....

Since coming here i've switched ISP to adsl4less.com ...(saving of £30 a quarter straight away :D )
Also now we redirect calls via 18866.com (last 3 mths bills total £8.50 total... saving of about £50)
and we reduced out package with bt to option1...£9.99/mth line rental...

Well today i got my bt bill and it is..............£95.17 :D:D:D a reduction of this debt of just over £200!! in 6 mths! and that wasnt due to increasing my monthly payment plan to bt either!! :j

I'm sooo chuffed!!:T :j

So again a massive THANK YOU!!!!!
