The Last Furlong

Been round these parts before , just want a home now for the final push to be debt free . Not putting a definite date on it , but roughly around Summer 2020 would be good.

I have around £2900 left to go ,not a lot in the scheme of things but enough to keep me on with the budgeting and being careful with the spends . Have learnt lots of useful tips and used advice from these forums over the past while.

Here's to getting the Sunshine girl over the finishing line :beer:

    Hello. First time I've been second post I think. I'll be with you for the journey. Small debts can be remarkably persistent but I'm sure with a bit of time and some NSD's you'll get there
    I think I saw you in an ice cream parlour
    Drinking milk shakes, cold and long
    Smiling and waving and looking so fine

  • That's a good amount of cashback. Is that insurance for twelve months?

    Another beautiful sunny morning, it's been a lovely week. Tomorrow I am de cluttering my wardrobe , and hoping to get a capsule wardrobe for the summer. I am sure I will have lots of stuff to put on eBay.

    I find if I have too many clothes I just go for the same things all the time .

    Hoping for NSD 5 today .

    Good luck with the de-cluttering. I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe :). I do try to stick to certain classic styles and colours that I know suit me, won't date quickly and that are good for mixing and matching.

    Hi there - good luck with the final furlong - I've subscribed.


    Nothing like a good old pared down wardrobe - I sorted a few things out myself last weekend - couple of pairs of trousers that was slightly too small initially but now fit - however I found that I didn't really care for them anymore! Off to the charity shop they went!


    Have a good weekend Sunshine. Are you up to anything special apart from the de-cluttering?
