    Hi, Can I join this month please? I'd like to try for 8 NSD's.

    NSD's for me are where I haven't spent any money out of my purse or used my debit card or withdrawn money from the bank account. I'm not including any bills or direct debits.

    Thanks!

    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.

    I do hope that you enjoy your time off.Igor is beside himself with joy: he'd love to help you meal plan! Oh lucky you!
    I'm almost jealous.

    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.

    Good luck with the cycling.

    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.

    Hello again,

    Can I join again Marmite? Moving house the beginning of March and got my biggest's and littlest's birthdays a couple of days after so need to rack up a good few NSDs.

    Could you put me down for 15 NSDs and 4 in a row please?

    Have I left anyone out?I don't think so.
    Sorry that it took me so long to update.I've just not been organised these last few days.
    Pleased to announce #1 though.

    Have a good weekend all.

    Here's to getting your first or second nsd under your belt.

    Well,this is interesting.I've just done a bit of adding up ,and can proudly say that we are doing not too bad at all!

    We have 18 nsdsers and have managed to amass a wonderful total of 9 nsds!!!

    I know that it gives us an average of 0.5 nsds each,which doesn't really make sense,but I like working out the averages.

    So,all we need now is to get 9 nsds more to even things out.

    Well here's one NSD for the collection, making me on 2 NSDs so far!

    Meal planning done up to mid February, and not the merest sniff of a Brussels sprout Vindaloo to be found. Tonight we are having chilli con carne and rice, tomorrow roast gammon with mash and veg followed by blackberry and apple sponge and custard. (No, Igor, I use vanilla extract in my custard, not slivers of anchovy. I know, I may be an uneducated and unrefined peasant but I know what I like!)
