September 2014 Update
August has come and gone, and I am concerned that we are not far away from Christmas now. Still, X-Factor has started, which offers a bit of humour. August was an expensive month – we stayed with friends, which was lovely, but we always go over budget (with travel and petrol and all the rest)! Also, my car let the side down with its MOT, apparently brake discs are important, and this set me back over £200. Then, randomly after that, the battery decided to give up the ghost, and that needed replacing! That was my emergency fund blown. Still, enough of my moaning…
Let’s get down to the figures. At the end of August, my debt stood at £17,018.81. After my September payments, my total debt will be £16,763.69. That means that I have reduced my debt by a further £255.12. I’m pleased with that, a pretty solid debt reduction.
I know I keep saying this, but September really should be a quieter month. We have no trips or major expanses planned, so hopefully I can make another sizeable debt repayment at the end of the month.
