    Good morning everyone

    Fantastic going with all the NSDs - We are really rocking it this month

    Well I think today will be another NSD, so that'll be No.13 - I'm determined not to spend anything until Monday

    Wishing you all a super NSDay!

    Hi guys .. Thanks for the warm welcome .. I think just being able to post on here will really help as I was starting to slip into that "I'll just pop to home bargains or B&M cos there cheap" trap �� ... I looked over my months bank statement and there were far to many spends in these stores on nothing

    So today is my first official NSD I have no plans to go out until work later this afternoon and I've already told the family no more tesco shops until Sunday lol ..

    Thanks again guys x
    This time I'm sticking with it !!

    No, Igor, when marmite mentioned Guido's huge mullet she wasn't referring to a fish. Now put that dangerously overweight pilchard back in the tin and go and scrub the stains out of her frock, it will do for Mrs Doyle when she's spring cleaning the bathrooms.

    Hi - I'm a newbie here and a bit late to the party, but can I please join for this month? I am terrible at impulse buys and eBay is my downfall!

    I will make a small start with 5 NSDs.

    i hope that you enjoy the thread.i'm also dreadful at impulse buys...this thread does help you think about spending habits,that's for sure.

    Oh guys .. Would I please be able to join in ?
    I've been terrible lately .. I do the grocery challenge over on old style and count my NSD on that but I think this looks really good ��

    If possible could I go for 9 this month (I already have a couple from the GC) so will count these but I want 9 in total and I'm going to see if I can get 3 in a row .. I think this is how it works ?

    I'm also during the PAD challenge but I'm not counting this as a spend .. Hope that's ok ?

    Thanks guys x

    I finally reached 1 NSD and almost got 2, but I forgot to buy milk on our main shop and we ran out today. This is definitely harder than it looks... all these bits and pieces I keep buying must be costing me a fortune!
