because I am finally reaching the end of nearly three years of debt worries, avoiding phone calls, pleading with creditors and generally being in crisis.

Just paid off my last card....now need to make sure I don't go down this road EVER again.

Congrats, PosieParker... you must be feeling so uplifted! grin

Nice one! Tell Martin Lewis, he'll dance along with you and make sure it doesn't happen again. Well Done!

Money worries are the absolute pits - it affects your whole life. Many, many congratulations on getting it all sorted. Onward and upwards!

I must do his budget plan.....in fact we're going to do it this weekend!! Yippee.

I suppose this wouldn't be a good moment to offer you an infallible betting scheme, or the chance to take 30% of a huge sum in a blocked account in Nigeria, or some shares in the Atlantic Tunnel Company? grin

Congratulations!

knittedbreast Wed 20-Jul-11 11:05:21

i just did a dance for you smile

i couldnt quite reach what yo have, but i managed to pay all my bills this month! thats an achievement too!

ThePosieParker Wed 20-Jul-11 11:13:13

WooHoo!! Celebrate good times come on.....and I hate Lionel, well apart from Hello, Easy like a Sunday morning, SAy you say me.....

It was our overspending in the belief that DH would keep on earning good money, instead of counting our blessings and getting secure.....really short sighted. We deserved our debt really, we had been greedy. But to be free of it is soooooooooo liberating and we've crippled our credit so now we can ONLY buy things we have the money for, which is what my parents always did w/o ever being in debt!!

TiaMariaandDietCoke Wed 20-Jul-11 12:57:48

well done Posie! - enjoy your dance, its well deserved! :D

Mollymax Wed 20-Jul-11 13:01:14

Well done, it must be such a relief.
We are the generation of credit though, so not totally your fault.

5inthebed Wed 20-Jul-11 13:02:39
