    Hi everyone, just checking in with my first NSD of the month. Was nearly derailed by a cake sale at work but I managed to resist and this is good not only for my purse but for my waistline too! Aiming for 1 NSD this weekend. Food shopping and a night out planned for Saturday but hoping to keep costs down as much as I can.

    NSD November = 1/12

    Well done Happy Monday :)


    Probably not an NSD for me today - I'll see, but I'm probably going to buy some paint for round the house. :)

    Aiming for at least 15, it’s going to be very strange for me as I usually shop daily
    Stop Buying **** We Don't Need :D

    borollan, is this food shopping mostly? ... I used to do the same but have managed to cut down a lot. This challenge really helps since there is a deli near me selling tempting treats that I now manage to avoid quite a lot of the time!

    Borollan and cathybird, I’m a terrible daily food shopper......or should I say I was �� hopefully the NSD challenge will help me rein in the daily spends. My weakness is yellow labelled food, I just love a bargain and my freezer is full to bursting.

    Picked up some cracking bargains at my local co op today, two pieces of boneless lamb breast reduced from over £8.00 to £3.53 each, these will go in the slow cooker later. Broccoli, carrots, potatoes and green beans which will be lovely with the lamb. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it ��

    Definitely on for a no spend day tomorrow x

    My weakness is more cinnamon buns and chocolate treats lol :) And random ice cream in the summer, luckily not a problem in November. I try to get my grocery shop out the way once a month now, so between that and this thread hopefully I won't be tempted :)
