    Pay ALL your debt off by Xmas 2018

    Pay ALL your debt off by Xmas 2018 4th Dec 17 at 4:17 AM
    Welcome to PART 1 OF Pay ALL Your Debt Off By Xmas 2018!

    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 2018.



    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!

    Hello, another 50 to my debts this morning.

    Got great news this week, I've got a new role at work and get a bit of a pay rise, should get new wage from end of Nov but they've just started a sharesave scheme so I think I'll pop the 100ish a month into that, never know, might really pay off!
