    Hi, I would love to join too!
    The smallest debt in my snowball is my Halifax CC, £1793.04. I'd like to smash through this over the next 100 days. I doubt I'll get it all paid, but I'm going to work my socks off to get it as low as I can. I'll aim to do this with zero based budgeting, a bit of side hustle cash and surveys. I'll also have two months council tax free, which will go straight to the debt.

    True LBM, December 2019 = £32934. Current Debt = £18277. 1% Challenge = 44%. #304 £1000 EF challenge = £800

    Could I join please. I'll prioritise one window loan which currently has a £995 balance. The interest is quite high...I think I've paid for the windows 2 or 3 times over in interest charges so keen to clear it asap.

    Hi, I'm going to join in with this challenge if I may! My aim is to pay £1000 off my consolidation loan I recently took out.

    I want to be DF by the time I'm 40 in Feb 2025, so 5 years away. The loan is over 6 years, so I need to make overpayments! I'd also really like to clear it in 4 years (or less!), so I can start saving for the future, and look at the mortgage maybe as well:j

    Hi Katie1215. Aim of this challenge is to pay off one debt of your choice within 100 days. I don't know, will you be able to pay off £2226, as I don't know, how much do you earn and what outgoings you've got. But it doesn't matter how big or small debt is, just try to focus and pay off as much as you can.

    Well done for everyone who already started the challenge!
