    Today should be a NSD all being well. Although have had to spend £70 on a residents parking scheme that is coming in to effect in our area on the 16th September it's an unfortunate necessity and coming out of the joint account so not counting it. We voted against the permit scheme...£70 for the privilege to park our cars in EXACTLY the same way...thanks...

    No NSD for me today, just about to pop into local shops for a few items, but tomorrow is looking good.


    fruitloop04 I can understand why you are miffed at the parking scheme, doesn't sound like you are getting anything for your money.

    NSD day number 2 /10 for me whoop! On my holidays tomorrow (2am - ouch!) no more NSD's but will be back on it when I get back...I've been lecturing my OH all day about saving money and NSD's and about the frugal year thread I have been reading, can't say he was interested but I carried on regardless I am sure he is glad we have have decided to drive to Italy as a european road trip so he can hear more money saving ideas

    Hello all,

    Just stopping by to declare NSD 2/12 after a super frugal weekend.

    Spendy day today though, as realised I've missed the ultimate essential from the weekly online shop - the toilet rolls

    Roll on tomorrow and hopefully no.3!

    Just caught up on the thread Marmite-yep I miscalculated, I started on 31st August but if it's OK I'll have that as my first (and only do far)...
    Prob not NSD today, at the quiz tonight and Husband normally pays but sometimes I pay for raffle ticket... If I don't ill pop back... Going to have to get myself in gear as I'm on 1/10 do far.. When Husband is back in work it's always easier as temptation to pop out isn't there...

    Not going anywhere tonight (real or virtual!) so I'm declaring NSD 3/10.

    Tomorrow will definitely be a spendy day.
