Jubilant June's NSD Challenge!

This challenge is about setting yourself a weekly/monthly target of how many No Spend Days you would like to achieve during June. 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. If you've never done the challenge before, it's really probably better to start with a goal of 10 or (at most) 15.
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. It is also completely fine to exclude automated or recurring payments such as bills, mortgage or direct debits.
3. It does help to post every time you notch up an NSD, or at least every two or three days ... it's easy to lose track! If you want to keep track of your NSDs in your MSE signature, that can be really motivating too image
4. It also helps to bookmark the thread, it's much easier to find image
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.

    Early call for day 1: sunshine here and I think there's a few folks out of town as the kids are quiet...
    Cancel the kitchen scraps for lepers and orphans, no more merciful beheadings, and call off Christmas.

    Not one for me today.  All this hot weather reminded me that babies and heat don't mix, so I ordered another fan for the house.  Also ordered myself a stick on height chart so I can start documenting the children's height on the wall (thought it would be a nice thing to do with them).  Back on the straight and narrow tomorrow!
