Just used some savings from my credit union to pay off my loan from them. That's another loan paid off, so I can now focus on my credit card.
My new amount is #57 £1120/£3500

I'll not get the credit card paid off by Christmas, however I'll definitely have it gone by next Christmas.

On a side note, I've noticed that the 1st page still hasn't been updated:( Can anyone advise me on how I figure out my percentage paid off please?, as it really did give me more focus and determination to carry on.

Percentage is your amount paid divided by your total you want to pay off, then multiply by 100. So your figures give you:

1120/3500 = 0.32 = 32%

Hope that makes sense.
2nd attempt to be debt free!!
Current Debt Progress - Start date 10/8/20 = £3,078
10/10/20 - £536/£3,078 = 17%

Thank you so much for that. :beer: you've just given me the kick up the bum I needed, as I want to make it at least over half way come Christmas.
