    Default Monthly Debt Reduction Challenge, let's bring it back!

    A few months ago, I had asked about starting a monthly debt reduction thread, which we did and there were a lot of responses. Needless to say, it kinda went away! I take complete responsibility for letting it slack and I am ready to get back on with it again. Does anyone want to join me for June? We got another week or so but I thought I better prepare everyone. Anyone in with me again?

    Now that school is close to be over for the school year, I need to get back on track myself. I am willing to jump in too!

    I'm in! I want to pay off my new-to-me car around September! That means that I need to get my butt in gear! I want to pay off about 1000 euros before July 15th.

    My main goal for June is to track my grocery spending, and cut back. I want to learn to budget well enough that I can do without child support for when the ex slacks off.
