    £189.66 Topcashback today! If anyone's broadband is up for renewal, V have a great deal on for £49 including an O2 sim and loads of channels. They have got a deal this week so you don't pay the set-up and through Topcashback, £181 on this particular package! So, for me, I'm paying £11 less than my old package, over 4 times the Mb, more channels, and from next month when my mobile is out of contract, another £42 per month saved with the SIM.

    I'm feeling DELIGHTED with myself!!
    Wow - well done 👍 you're doing brilliantly ☺️

    My renewal not due until January so will have to check it out couple of weeks beforehand.
    That was this morning.... I've made another £250 since then!!  :o

    I need to count it all up properly. I've got an extra days work Saturday too.

    I'm always in it, it's only the depth that varies....

    Current debt: £10,806.75
    Debt free date April 2025 (though expecting this to come forward)

    Okay! I've counted it all up.

    I was on £245.59
    Mobile 1 £165
    Mobile 2 £35
    Cashback  for selling mobiles £8.66

    Broadband cashback £181
    Home Insurance cashback £33
    TSB Savings account cashback £40 (this comes with Money Pots!!)
    Switching banks (again!!) £175
    Mystery Shop £10

    So my running total for September is £893.25! £439 of that I've made today. AND, as I said before, I've now reduce my monthly costs by £53 pm as well

    This is winning at life!! (Shame I'm still 15.5k in debt...but you know!)

  • £127 overtime but that's probably the last of the OT for a little while so need to get cracking in other areas 😊

    That's great! You're actually well ahead of hitting your target already!  <3

  • I’m annoyingly waiting for 2.91 to clear on Prolific so I can claim a fiver off it. Come onnnnn!

    I’ve realised, though, that I did a bunch of effective overtime this week. I’ll try to work it out and post it here later, but it’s over £100 for sure. In the meantime, I’ve received £1.60 cash back from the bank. Going to list a few items of clothing on Vinted this weekend too (stupidly took photos and put them back in the wardrobe without taking a note of the size 🤦🏻‍♀️)
    My debt free journey starts on 09/01/2024:

    CC1 - £0,000.00 (cleared, 29 February 2024)
    CC2 - £1,993.91
    CC3 - £4,089.70
    CC4 - £4,783.14

    Current outstanding total: £10,866.75

    So it turns out I’ve done in the region of £380 of overtime! Plus another £0.11 cash back that cleared immediately after my last post (naturally) that puts me at an unexpected £398.99 😱
