Success Story - OG Debt-free Wannabe's 2022 Report

"I've only gone and done it"  

I joined in 2006 carrying more debt than I could cope with.  I've been on the brink of repossession, survived crisis after crisis but I've now done it.  I have no debts, except the one noted in my sig file.  I have savings to survive 6 months in a 'worse case' scenario.   My advice to others is don't give up, keep chipping away at the debts.  I didn't track every penny spent, that would be too depressing, but I use tricks to help me, like a daily £1 accumulator and more recently a daily saving account of £3.33 (arbitrary number) a day and watch my savings grow. I learned from MSE Forums how to pay off one card at a time and keep overpaying at every opportunity and to take advantage of interest free credit cards where possible.
