  • I've confused myself with what to count and what not to. I bought petrol today, which is a budgeted expense. And I paid for postage on some eBay items but it was for profit. Would you count these?

    Hi.Petrol is budgeted,so no.
    I hear that most folk don't count eBay postage as the buyer pays for it ultimately,so no,it doesn't count as a spend either.

    Really though,it's whatever YOU are happy with.You make up the rules with nsds.

    Hope this helps.
  • Had a swim tonight which I don't regret but does mean not an NSD day

    I agree.
    I swim most days and have a subscription so don't count it.You could make it an allowed spend?

    I could... maybe exercise spending no longer counts!? That'll give me a fair few more NSDs as currently doing yoga, swim and training each week.
    Thanks for the suggestion!

    I am pleased to report that this week I have achieved (as of 11:59pm yesterday)

    12 NSDs

    and

    3 in a row

    Which I think were both my goals for this month.

    I am about to go on a hen weekend, so it is unlikely, but I am hoping to achieve one more NSD because then I will have a new record!

    No nsd today as I bought breakfast when we went out to get some bits of the wedding, going to try and make the remaining 3 days nsds so will end up 2 short of this months target.
