    Interesting concept, I have a Barclays Boiler agreement that is 2800, over 100 days, I have 28 per day would completely clear of this (2800 includes the interest also..)

    I might join in on this... I'm not overly sure, but at the moment, this debt is killing me from remortgaging (apparently coming from a broker..)

    Alright,

    I'm going to join this but not actually make the payment until day 100. I do not want to leave my self-short at all, I will be putting this 28 per day into my savings account (196 per week). So just in case, so I can still use it.

    I'm sort of expecting something similar in the 2k bracket that will easily clear all of my debt and give me small emergency fund. Should find out for sure in the next 2 weeks.

    Hi Amara and other challengers

    I was going to wait for the next challenge, but seeing as there are 59 days left of this challenge, please can I join?

    I've got a debt of 1,492 to clear, which seeing as I would have to pay 25 a day, I doubt I'll clear in time (especially with the big C just around the corner ) - but you never know!!
    Earn 10 a day November - 5.70/300
