    Pay ALL your debt off by Xmas 2017

    Pay ALL your debt off by Xmas 2017 13th Dec 16 at 8:02 PM
    Welcome to PART 1 OF Pay ALL Your Debt Off By Xmas 2017!

    Firstly I would like to welcome all new and existing members from last years thread.

    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 27th December 2017.



    To help me run this thread easily, could you please all post your totals in large text and in a bold colour and post the amount you have paid off // target amount

    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 paid off 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!

    Hi!
    I know I'm a bit late, but please could I still join? I have been trying to sort myself out this year and I'm determined to do pay it all off by my 30th birthday which is end of the year so this would tie in great and hold me accountable!
    I've paid a fair chunk off this year so far, but my current official balance as of today is 7,126.98.
    Thanks

    Hello,

    The minimum payment on my 0% card plus a spare 20 I've found in my budget this week:

    #118 758.30 / 4861 (15.6%)

    Not bad considering I wasn't going to join this year because I didn't think I'd be able to pay anything off until our flat sells!
    Total debt at LBM = 4861.03

    DFBXmas2018 #91 - 1757.14 / 3500 (50.2%)

    Only debt we have to clear is our car and that feels manageable (need to do lots of overtime)
