Nearly There !!

I have just made another payment towards the credit card, the balance now is £201 !!! I am so excited that it is nearly all gone. I had a bit of luck last month. I read the meters and promptly rang the readings through. Usually I tend to ignore the estimations and keep paying the monthly bill, how stupid is that ! Anyway we had overpaid by £166 which they refunded us within a few days. Now I know that energy costs are rising and I could have left the money to act as a buffer , should I need it later, but I wanted the money now to pay towards the credit card. To get rid of that is our top priority. Once that silly card has gone , we can start saving towards other things with our 'own' money. Money that is ours to do with what we want and not to be handed to some corporate giant on a designated day each month. On a lighter note, my daughter has just come home from school and has found £1 along the way. She gave it to me but I gave it her back and told her to put it in the piggy bank.

  5. She is a good girl, some children wouldnt have admitted to finding the money and would have stashed it away !

  6. Well done you are nearly there , very very close.
    When you have paid the last bit will you cut it up & cancel it?. We are cutting up our Argos card and cancelling it. We have always paid whatever we have bought in the 6 month interest free credit period.No temptation. Also it motivates me to build an emergency fund xx
