    Well as long as nothing else crops up (have ended up owing the parents another £250. Long story - have teeny bedroom, was sleeping on airbed which went boom. Dad built me a bed, and mum bought a mattress)....Next month :j

    I do have a car debt of £3k, but I owe that to my dad (bought the car off them), and I acrued that after my LBM, so I'm not actually counting that at present - cos otherwise I'll be here forever lol.

    I hope to be free on or before August 2011.
    It seams so far away and by then I will be in my thirties :eek:

    I feel like I wasted most of 20's by being in debt and paying off things and not being able to have any fun. I look forward to my new debt free era.
    In Jan 2007 I had a debt of £27,896.00 :eek:
    In October 2011 I paid it off and owned £0.00 - Kinda proud of this!:T

    Our DFD is 2011, I know that is only another 3 years, but have already been going for nearly 3 years, so to be honest we try not to think about it too much, as too depresssing. Must look at other ways of raising some capital to snowball it.
    :j DEBT FREE FROM 01/01/11 :j

  • October 2014 for me because of a long term loan :mad: , I'm hoping to bring that forward to at least May 2012 though by overpaying and general DFW tactics.
