I had my creditors meeting today at 10.20. Just had a call from Stepchange to say that is was approved by 100% of the creditors that voted (only ones not to vote were NHS Dental and British Gas)
Barclays (Loan and overdraft)
The relief is unbelievable! so happy to finally be on this journey and living a semi normal life rather than hiding from calls
I have been on the forum so much in the last few months and have got some great ideas on budgeting etc.

I used to withdraw cash and put into envelopes each month for food, fuel, dentist/clothes etc that way when it was gone it was gone .. if anything was left each month then i would put it into a pot for xmas or for a weekend away even if it were only a few £s ..they all add up
That's what I have been thinking of doing, as I receive tax credits I was going to put that money in an envelope as that is what I use to live on for the week. It just seems odd that it has come to the end of a month and I still have money in my bank and money hidden away in cash (not a lot but it feels like I'm doing something wrong and shouldn't be able to do this)
