    Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. Resisted the urge to order a take out and decided to add 15 to my personal loan debt instead.

    Only 385 left to pay from the 799 I started this challenge with and then I can move on to tackling my credit card debt.

    Paid another 5 today! I've totally lost track of what I've paid since starting this challenge! I'll have to go back through the thread and calculate it!!

    The important thing is the debt is decreasing! My aim is for it to be below 1000 by the end of May!

    Hey everyone

    Well I cheated a bit. After getting down to 500 on the loan we decided to clear it using part of the EF. Checked online this morning and showing as a nil balance

    Putting the 150 this frees up now towards other debts.

    Target is now my cc at 1613
    1DV100 1200/1200 + 0/1613
