Jolly JANUARY's NSD 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 January.
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.
Remember every little helps :money::money:

    Count me in for 15 again please, beanie. I am not counting the direct debits for household bills but I will count food shopping as a spend. This is because we have loads of stuff in the fridge, freezer and food cupboards, and I want to train myself to only go food shopping when there is a list of several items to get.
