Getting serious

I have made a plan (snowball spreadsheet stylee) to clear up the last of our debt. We borrowed some non mortgage debt to pay the last stage payment on the house in Crete, due to a few changes in exchange rate.  So to kick off the next stage in our financial evolution I am chopping up my credit cards.
