    That's a relief that you can postpone it.

    It's a silly question maybe,but does that mean that it's already paid for?
    Most of my kit is bought and paid for (but will still be fit for purpose next year) and I'd only just renewed my passport before I broke my wrist (would have waited if I'd known this was going to happen ;)), but I hadn't booked transport (was waiting until I had my passport in my hands) and it's not a walking holiday where you can book accommodation in advance (or not the budget hostels anyway).

    OMG! Yes this is the right place Marmite, I was reading a different thread before I posted and on that one they are SFD's (spend free days) not NSD's!

    It's just as well that you can postpone it.

    It's been a while, haven't been on the forum for a couple of days. I've finally found myself a job, and have also managed to successfully keep up the no spending. I'm on NSD 13 this month, so only one away from my overall target!

    Could I please be put down for 20 NDSs in August which seems slightly optamisitic but I think it is very do able! :D

    Hello,


    I threaten to do this challenge in my head fairly often but now I am having a last minute push towards getting debt free by the end of the year I need to plan spending and stop this going out on a whim.


    So can you put me down for 8 no spend days please. I know it isn't a lot but am on holiday at the moment so am starting off s l o w l y!


    thanks for running the thread XXXX

    Yes, Igor we have some new people joining us. Yes, you can offer them a cuppa and something to eat. No, they will definitely not be wanting your leftover ferret and chutney sandwiches.....ye gods, Igor, they've even got your teethmarks in....get back to July 's thread and get on with preparing for the end of month party.......

    Sorry about that, folks, you just can't get the staff these days.....
