    First update...
    Hi, I've joined this MSE forum today... Is it possible for me to sign up to this challenge even though we're nearly half-way through the year? I have some serious decluttering to do and a need to transform my financial situation.

    I'm a mature student who is hoping to find work in a few months time and return to my research Master's course in September if my back issue is resolved with treatment! Living on benefit is sending my finances through the floor... I need to clear the debts that are accumulating.

    Is that okay? Can you also explain how this works, please?

    Thanks in advance.
