Marvelous May's NO Spend Day'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 May.
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.

    Hi, can I join I haven't joined before either.

    I'll need to exclude birthday presents/cake/cards excluded this month as have my 2 kids and hubby's birthday.

    I'll go for 15 days as first time so totally unsure if this is doable or not..

    aiming for 14. Less than my normal target of half but have a few days away this month so have accounted for those.
    Today was an unplanned spend day on luxury items (damn going into shops!)
