  • NSD #2 today - I do need to do some Xmas online shopping but I am determined to declare some NSD to start Dec well.

    There will always be a (beautiful stilettoed) foot in fabulous in LaPlan's life.
    I am choosing to be fabulously frugal to support some wonderful life changing and affirming financial goals including buying a London home I love.

    DON'T BUY STUFF (from Frugalwoods)
    No seriously, just don’t buy things. 99% of our success with our savings rate is attributed to the fact that we don’t buy things. You can’t really hack your way to frugal. You can and should take advantage of discounts, coupons, rewards points, and the like. But at the end of the day, the only way to truly save money is to not buy stuff.    Money doesn’t walk out of your wallet on its own accord.

    My March  streaks to track
    Track Minimalist game  items (Nov 310)   (Dec  95)  (Jan 90)   Feb 50
    Exercise streak  
    YNAB days:: Target 50 days -Age of money 29
    Track my NSD's - Target 13 days/ 0/13

  • I spent on Sunday 3rd but not today - so 1 NSD for me today please :smile:

    I’m afraid that today and tomorrow are very spendy days. I got the ok to return to work so I’m doing half my hours and light duties for the first two weeks and then gradually more  but it means I need to get Xmas sorted, the cards done and sent and the present money sent to the various great nieces and nephews. Luckily I won’t need to break into the credit cards this year as I’ve not spent much while I’ve been off sick.
