Week 1 – Debt Smashing Stats (Monday 3rd March to Sunday 10th March)

So, every week on Sunday I will post a summary of my income, expenses and current debt. I get paid fortnightly so I pay the majority of my expenses and debt repayment for the fortnight on my pay date. So next weeks update will look a little different to this one.

I had this info all nice and fabulous on a little excel spreadsheet but I can’t insert it into this post. Im a bit computer challenged on these types of things so if anyone can suggest how I can add an excel spreadsheet please let me know!

    YAY! congrats! I personally always hate seeing how much I pay on my credit cards..but like looking at the spreadsheet I keep and seeing how far they come down. lol

    • Thanks! Yes, its horrible to see how much of your hard earned cash you are paying to some financial institution. But every repayment will make my resolve stronger to never get in this situation again! Thanks for your comment and encouragement 🙂
