    Dancing through December NSD challenge

    Dancing through December NSD challenge 3rd Dec 17 at 9:20 PM
    I created this thread as I couldnt see one for December. I dont own this challenge but know others would like to see a december one.

    This is the final No Spend Day thread before 2018 kicks into play.

    Create a target of how many No Spend days you would like to achieve in December. Keep us updated with your progress and have a lovely Christmas / holiday season.

    To join, just post your personal target and you are on your way.

    Tips for the challenge;
    1. Decide on a clear goal weekly or monthly of how many No Spend days you'd like to try and achieve

    2. Create a list of allowances...What counts as a spend and what doesn't. Keep the list on you so you don't fall of the wagon or make exceptions for everything

    3. Keep a tally of how many NSDs you get. See if you can beat your previous amount!

    1st & 2nd wasn't a nsd.

    I'm calling today an NSD because if I wasn't messed around by Asda I wouldn't of spent anything extra and would have had a NSD.

    So 1 for me. Hoping tomorrow is one...

    I haven't had a bad since Monday.

    Tuesday was a planned Christmas shopping spend but brought little bits for my work . Yesterday and today I took an uber to work or had it back to home.

    Hoping tomorrow is one

    well done everyone

    I haven't had an NSD yet.

    Though I may as well claim one today.

    My Christmas shopping is all done now - I went over budget with most things but I should be okay.
    I did take £100 our of my emergency savings, then I put it back in because If it sits in my normal account, i'll be tempted to spend it, I'm trying not to spend anything now until i absolutely need to

    Geesh. Its -2 but feels like this morning.
    Claiming NSD for yesterday.

    I did buy a weekly travel ticket but thats for the week inbetween my last pay and my new pay. I've purchased it now so i didnt have to panic about not having enough money to travel to work.
