Splendid September's NSD's challange

This challenge is about setting yourself a weekly / monthly target of how many No Spend Days you would like to try and achieve during the month of SEptember.
Keep us updated with your progress and hope you all enjoy the challange.

To join,
just post your personal target and you are on your way.

Tips for the challenge;
1. Decide on a clear goal weekly or monthly of how many No Spend days you'd like to try and achieve

2. Create a list of allowances...What counts as a spend and what doesn't. Keep the list on you so you don't fall of the wagon or make exceptions for everything

3. Keep a tally of how many NSDs you get. See if you can beat your previous amount!

We CAN do it :money::money::money:

    Thanks beanie for setting up the challenge. :A

    I'm going for an ambitious 26 nsds this month.

    Today was #1.
  • There are only 12 days this month where I am not already committed to paying for things :eek: so I'm going to set a target of 10 NSDs.

    Same rules as usual for me, if it comes out my wallet it counts as a spend, whether it's cash or card.

    Happy September everyone!!
