    All credit cards (3!) and student overdraft should be paid for Xmas 08 :j

    But I will still be paying my car loan until June 2009 - paying it back a full 6 months early! I don't really see this as 'debt' though, more at usual outgoing like rent.

    Sooner if I can...I'm in it for the long haul.

    November 2009 for me but hopefully with even more hard work this will be brought forward by quite a few months.

    I was so elated that 11/2009 is now our DFD rather than 5/2011 that I've begun a monthly countdown 19 months to go. :cool:

    Hopefully we'll get extra money from new ventures which will help to bring this date considerably nearer.

    Goodness knows what we'll do when we are debt free eventually......

    I'm the same as Daisykinn- hope to have credit cards (2 for me) and my student overdraft paid off by December 2008. I'm not sure about my student loan- I haven't decided what to do with that just yet...

  • Well, I AIMED to be debt free by the end of this year ... to beat my DFD of 2010... but if recent developments don't go my way, Oct 2010 looks correct :(

    Oh well.

    Well I'm hoping for June 2008! And if I really tighten my belt, May 2008, although I should really eat, so that might not be realistic! It's very exciting to be on the home stretch, never thought I'd ever get there!
