New to this. Just had a shock. Went online to tot up all my credit card debts.£17,000 in total :(!
Would like to pay a large chunk off by Xmas 2019, but due to study and part-time work will probably be a struggle :) .
No mortgage. Have a part time job.
Student (may have to leave for a year to concentrate on finances : () :o
