September 2011 Update
For those of you who are regular readers, I’m sure you’ll be delighted and relieved to know that my best man’s speech went down a storm, and the groom is still talking to me – which is a bonus! Autumn is here, and after what is apparently the coolest summer for 16 years, it’s time to see how hot my finances are at the moment. So how have I done this month?
After August payments, my total debt stood at £24,450.13. Now, after September repayments, the total is £23,077.84. That means my debt has reduced by £1372.29!! I expect some of you are picking your jaws up off the table/floor/mouse mat. Let me explain, I have not been left a massive inheritance, won the lottery, or built a sterling printing press. During the last month I have received my annual student loan statement, which tells me how much I have paid off that debt over the last year. I only get this information once a year, so I can only update my records once a year. Anyway, enough about me. So, how are you……?
