    Pay ALL your debt off by Xmas 2016 - Part 2

    Pay ALL your debt off by Xmas 2016 - Part 2 24th Sep 16 at 8:32 AM
    Welcome to PART 2 OF Pay ALL Your Debt Off By Xmas 2016!

    Firstly I would like to apologise, to everyone from part 1, who thought they were going mad when they couldn't find the thread. It seems that the thread has been deleted. I have no idea why, I did contact the admins but heard nothing back from them. Not only did they take away our thread, they took away my post count.

    Now to get back to our debt busting.
    Anyone is welcome to join this challenge and it is NEVER too late. There is also no amount of money too small or too large that will stop you from joining this challenge. We have several members who will be on their debt journey for several years to come, but they are part of this thread to pay off a fixed amount of their debt as the support on here is fantastic!
    So, if you think you can pay off all your debts by Christmas or have a goal to pay off a certain amount then please join in!

    This challenge runs until 26th December 2016.



    To help me run this thread easily, could you please all post your totals in large text and in a bold colour.

    It would also be a big help if you could also put with it your challenge number.
    i.e. another 50 paid off so now the total for

    #001 is 315.43/7685.67
    By the way, don't worry about working out your % paid as I can do that for you!

    Still going strong the next few months are where the big bucks get paid off so should see the amount coming down quicker

    Thanks muppets, it's very frustrating with the lack of sick pay when I feel that I go above and beyond whenever I'm asked to. I guess that's my personal opinion though. I got payslip this afternoon and have been given 2 days pay back as a thank you for going on an overnight work trip when I hadn't fully recovered which has made me feel a bit better. Still not great, but a bit better

    And at least it means we are looking less horrific for PADs this month. In fact, for reasons shortly to be revealed my PADs may well increase.... although it's not a nice shiny new better paid job so don't get too excited for me

    Woop woop! My FINAL student loan payment went out today, meaning that it's COMPLETELY GONE FOREVER!!! It stood at a whopping 22k when I left Uni.

    But the journey isn't over yet, of course... I'm still on track to be debt free (not including house and car) by early 2017. My next goal is to buy my replacement car with cash, which has meant a slight dialling back of my 'expectations' about what car I'll be getting! The mortgage is here to stay for quite a while yet, unfortunately.

    Anyway, total update...
