    Maybe I'll just let you off with a warning.

    Yes,I'm feeling benevolent today.

    NOT THAT F WORD, IGOR!!!!!!. The one that starts with F, ends with L and has A and I in the middle. We do not "fail" on this challenge, ever!

    Hi Marmite!

    May I play again this month please? I found the challenge last month really made January a bit more fun that it could've been!

    Another 12 days for me please, and I'm going to try for a 3 in a row this time! ( I actually managed 3 in a row in January but hadn't signed up for that part of the challenge)

    Thank you so much for looking after us Marmite!

    HI, this is my first time on any MSE challenge! I'm determined to get this debt under control this year, though. I got married in December and after all the good work we did paying off debt over the last 2 years it feels like we're back at square one (in fact, in a worse position!). Weddings are expensive (but being married is lovely!)

    Anyway - could you put me down for 10 NSDs in February please? Thanks!

    First NSD of the month for me!

    I did have a DD come out today but in my rules I don't count them as they have come out of my 'bills' bank account which I pay into in full every pay day.

    I realise that it's only 6pm but as I work V early mornings I will be in bed in an hour and therefore am pretty sure I won't be spending anything today!

    So that's 1/12

    Thanks Marmite!

    I had hoped that today might be an nsd,but I ended up buying a birthday present (in the sales so half price).

    There's always tomorrow.

    Off the starting blocks with NSD number 1 today! Must watch temptation over the next couple of weeks, as I am on leave so will have freedom to go shopping. I did well in January because we used up a lot of Christmas stuff, so I had better get my head down and start meal planning.

    Yay, day 1 was NSD! Just 9 more to go...

    Used my city bike for the first time in ages, hopefully I'll be able to do that more as we get into spring rather than paying for transport.

    Morning Everyone,
    1st NSD for me yesterday, no plans spend today, but its still a bit early to fully declare. I've planned a trip to sainsburys tomorrow so fingers crossed i can keep my purse tightly zipped until then.
