This challenge is about setting yourself a weekly/monthly target of how many No Spend Days you would like to achieve during May. 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. It is fine to exclude necessary expenses eg petrol, groceries, pet food, etc, when it comes to deciding what is and isn't an NSD.

3. It does help to post every time you notch up an NSD ... it's easy to lose track! If you want to keep track of your NSDs in your MSEsignature, that can be really motivating too

4. It also helps to subscribe to the thread ... that way you get a daily email reminder so you don't lose motivation

5. NSDs are trickier than they seem and easily derailed. It makes the challenge much easier if you notch up as many as you can in the first half of the month.


May

Off to a start =
