    Hi everyone!
    I've done an update.
    Backwards and forwads for me. Big forwards is I've got a new job
    as cashier in the bank, I've wanted job in finances. It's only one day per week, but still. I'm runingmy business for the rest of the week. My first day at work had a disastrous start though. My car packed in just before I went into parking!!! I blocked the road, some lovely postman helped me moved my car on the side To shorten up story: calling for an assistance and work on my car costed me 300. Not good, but it's done now. I'll just my target, ideally I want to clear it off before end of my challenge.
    Keep going, you're so great!

    Hi Sweetcake
    I've studied Economics long time and I enjoyed it. I had other jobs and have been running my own business for eight years, but it's always been in the back of my head I wanted to come back to the finances. I applied for a job I got it

    We see how it will go It's scary but exciting.

    Not been on here much but since I last posted I've paid a whopping 213 off the Next bill!!!128077;!!!128077;!!!128077;

    Payday meant the large payment going through and I've been PADding like mad! This bill that was touching 2100 at Christmas time currently stands at 670! I did buy something from next for 34 but did a PADding of 38 to more than cover it! Interest gets added on the 6th July so I need it sufficiently into the 600's so that it doesn't go back up into the 700's! I'm sure I'll do it!!

    Hi everyone

    After clearing the loan I wanted to I took a break from the challenge to get through sons 18th without using a cc.

    Well he had a lovely birthday weekend, nothing over the top, and no cc was used

    So I'm back and want to clear as much as possible off the new amount (1613) before the end of the challenge
