    My wedding is in April and instead of a traditional wedding cake we are having a cheese one - rounds of different cheese sat on top of each other with crackers, grapes and chutneys. It's probably the bit of the day I am most excited about (aside from the lifelong commitment, of course...)

    Hi all :)
    Been a few days since i last reported in, but i'm all up to date now.

    Saturday i was at work so NSD#8

    Sunday we went to the cinema which isn't included, but there's a t*sco next door and i wandered in just to check for reduced goodies, and came out £40 lighter. It does seem a lot but £26 was on Nicotinell lozenges, £13 for 144 (that's usually the price for 96). i got 6 packs of 8 Lincolnshire sausages, 2 packs of 12 reduced fat pork sausages, belly pork, 2 double packs of diced pork, lambs liver. All portioned up and in the freezer ready to add to future meal plans.

    Monday and Tuesday my purse hasn't seen the light of day. Its hidden in a draw to give it a rest after Sunday's impulse purchases. So NSD #9 and #10 locked down too.

    Today I'm hoping for another today, but i haven't quite finalised my plans for the day yet. I'm on the cusp of needing to fill up the car so trying to eek it out until i go shopping on tomorrow. But if the petrol won't last i'll do my shopping today. I'll know more after taking the kids to school.

    NSDs 10/20

    Good luck to all, and keep locking down those elusive NSDs :D

    So yesterday wasn't an NSD as we d ran out of bread. Then opened the fridge this morning and realised we ran out of milk, on the plus side those two trips to mr t express and nothing extra to what we needed was bought so definetly making improvements.

    Don't plan on leaving the house today so should be NSD 5/10 for today (I've paid off the remainder of a student finance overpayment today but decided not to count debt repayments in my NSD's i think whilst we're paying off our honeymoon on my credit card in chunks at the moment.

    hi all :)

    Yesterday i ventured out to the shops. the decision was made for me when at breakfast time we used the last of the cereal (thought i had another stashed in the back of the cupboard). So i fueled up the car at £50. Got the necessary groceries for £33.63 (stuck hard to the list).

    My OH has been working away in central London since Monday, and sneakily came home early last night with food in tow paid from his food budget. He did get a telling off as that money could have gone in the savings pot, but his opinion was that he would have spent it if he was still away so we're no worse off. It was a lovely to have a night off the cooking :D

    Today i've been clearing out the black hole under the stairs ready for our smart meter fitting tomorrow. Busying myself cleaning means no time for spending.
    Tomorrow i'll be waiting my fitting and staying in all day not spending. Saturday i'm at work so more not spending and Sunday i am planning a very lazy day at home with the OH and kids (maybe have a board game championship). So a possible 4 NSDs in a row in the future :j Fingers crossed :j

    Good luck to all and keep tight hold on those purse strings :)
