    Best intentions yesterday, but DS needed a loan of twenty quid so Bank of Mum and Dad came to the rescue. Still got a NSD today though, making 7 altogether.

    Florence you need to sort out a budget and stick to it. We all fall off the budgeting wagon occasionally, but just have to climb back on and continue. Have you looked at the Old Style threads? Lots of good ideas for being frugal on there.

    Some minor spends today, bread, biscuits plus Father's Day gift for my dad. However, I have great hopes for tomorrow as there is no reason whatsoever for me to spend money. Thursday and Friday look like being a bit spendy, but I am working all weekend so two more NSDs should be added to the kitty then. We shall see......

    Hey all,
    So long time no see (speak/write, whatever you call it )
    I have been in hospital so it means I have managed to clock up my NSDs quite nicely! There was no way I was paying the price for a TV card! Iplayer on my phone it was!
    So today marked NSD #14! Target is 15, so almost there - even if it is by default!

    Hope you're all doing well, and you're NSDs are clocking up nicely too!

    Incy x
    SPC no. 462 TOTAL £48.11
    SPC11 No.462 Target: £250
    NSD May - Acheived: 7 NSDs (Started 21/05/17)
    NSD June (Target 15/30) - Achieved: 14/15
    NSD July (Target 18/31) - Achieved: 3/18
