    I'm still here! So I've paid off the personal loan in full and the next project is my credit card which is now at 4,684.34. I really want to pay off as much as possible in the next 100 days. I went a bit crazy with my spending due to wedding season and falling into old habits i.e eating out a lot.

    I've set up a new standing order and am reviewing my budget for the next month.

    I've paid off £900 this month and my final numbers are £1717.47/£3317.47.

    I still have £5k to pay off until I'm absolutely debt free. I will definitely join the next competition and perhaps post here a little more.

    Well done everyone!

    Hi everyone!

    Sorry I wasn't around much lately, I started my new job and I was really busy. I know I said 10th August, but I'd like to move it to Monday 13th. I'll put the tread straight way.
