Hi everyone!

Let's do it again, our 1 Debt vs 100 days challenge chapter 35.
There's one, simple rule: choose one debt and do whatever you can, to pay it off within 100 days.
This challenge starts on 30th of April and finishes on 7th of August 2020.

Everyone who wants to take part, please reply with your name and target.

P.S Hope I'm not stepping on any toes posting this, I just found the last challenge so great at getting me to focus on paying off my debt. 

1. MidsHollie £1140 / £1140
2. SuperSavingD £2240/£2100
3. Amara £100 / £300

    Hi MidsHollie, you bit me to it. I'd like to pay off remaining £300 overdraft. It's not going to be easy , when my hours are reduced and we live on one wage.

    Welcome Everyone! 
    This is my first time running a challenge thread, so please be gentle!
    Amara, times are tough, but I love how a challenge like this helps with focus. Over 100 days, your aim can be for £3 a day. It sometimes feels more manageable then. 

    Good luck everyone!

    Hi, 
    I'd love to join Iv got 4 cards that I keep bouncing around but seem to make no progress on. Iv got  my £1000 emergency fund sorted, and money for car insurance for next year so now I want to start knocking down the debt. Not sure how.... Thinking I need a second income that will just go straight on it so this first 100 days challenge will give me motivation to work out what to do! 
    I want to clear smallest card first £1861.80... So let's see what happens!
