    It's final, the debt must go....... 16th Apr 19 at 12:01 PM
    Hi All,

    After many years of just treading water with our debt I have decided that it has to go as we are fast approaching our retirement and it needs to be way gone before then. In addition, we need to learn to live frugally and within our means so this diary is a combination of our journey to becoming debt free and changing our lifestyle so it is adaptable for our retirement.

    We have substantial debt but I am treating it in stages so my first aim is clear the first 7500. I will add a SOA to my diary as soon as I have all the information to make it correct as April is a month when so many slight increases happen in my household bills.

    See you soon x
