Thanks eyebright! Hopefully I can get some more moved into the EF and fingers crossed no emergencies until it's built back up!

I just read about it being "blue Monday", surprisingly I'm feeling quite chipper today. I think I had my blue Monday a couple of weeks ago! I think today should be called "cold Monday, cos I'm freezing today!
What's Zipzero please? Sounds interesting? I'm at £11ish on Prolific, sitting on it for now, but maybe when it gets up to £20 I'll throw it at the loan.
Plodding on is boring but good! Well done on not dipping into your wages until Sunday.
I have to write a meal plan and associated shopping list on my to-do list for tonight too! Hoping to keep it as low as possible as reducing my grocery spends is my top target for making some savings in the budget that can free up money for my saving pots and overpaying the loan.
Good luck on the job hunting front. Maybe there will be an uptick in jobs available in the next few months, as a lot of places will be doing their budgets and forecasts for the next financial year, and I know where I work that's when the business cases to take on new staff get approved.

Wooooooo woooooo my debt total has just gone into the next thousand bracket. £17,697 Literally cannot wait until it's in the £15,000's.
No overpayments this month, need to concentrate on topping my EF back up to £300 first. So it's going to take a little while to get there.

Hi Poppy, I've been quietly following your story with interest as there are parallels with mine! Just wanted to say congratulations for going down a debt bracket! I've just experienced something similar and it is a small but very encouraging win along the way isn't it! Keep going! :T

Thought it was time I posted on your diary as you kindly post on mine
When you do your meal plan, would you be so kind to throw some ideas on here so that I can pinch from you
Good luck with the job hunting too. Hope something comes your way real soon so you can smash that £15k barrier down.
