    Hi all, I’m new to this but my debt is causing me untold stress so I’m gonna start small with this and the grocery challenge. I’m not counting general bills that come out every month or the kids £1 that they get for sweets on a Friday lol so apart from that I’m gonna say 10no spend days this month and see what I can achieve. Thanks

    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!)
    as of yesterday 0/2.
    today might be a spend day as might be socializing tonight but kinda hoping it gets cancelled haha so i can have a NSD ... is that sad!? :rotfl:

    Still, still trying to achieve 10 NSDs...the puppies have chewed my purse a little, so have decided that rather than replace it, I will put elastic bands around it in the hope that having to take the bands off will deter spending!!

    yesterday i managed 1 day from possible 6 days, it being 6th of may).
    but 1/14 of my target.
    i'll report in the format of:
    1/6
    1/14
    going forward where the top is how many NSDs from days that have passed in the month & below that days out of my target, hope that makes sense.
    today might be a spend day, probably will. Not the strong start to may that I was hoping for.
  • Won't be one today, got physio and need to buy some dry shampoo as we have no hot water :mad:
