    Well done Abba!

    Can I join please? Hoping to pay off all debt by Christmas so want to bust the biggest one as much as I can in the next 100 days (which is tricky as I'm self-employed and term-time only so likely not paid til Oct now...) which is 1767.01... not round number at all!

    Thank you!

    Can I join please?? No chance I'll have all my debt paid off but if even I get a small chunk paid off I'll be happy.
    I'll aim for 500 in the 100 days, hopefully it gives me the motivation and the kick up the backside I need.

    Can I join please. I will set my target at 537, which is for a balance transfer on 6 months 0%. Might be a bit high for me but by joining this I might have a higher chance of success.

    First payment made 14 so 14/537

    Afternoon,
    My starting point is 550/2500. I am trying to pay off a 0% credit card so I will be keeping all of my extra money in a separate account until I have enough to pay it all off. This seems risky to me but I do not want to commit all my extra cash in case something else crops up that needs to doing.
    Thanks Amara for running this challenge.
