     I won’t meet my target, my own fault as I forgot to take half term into account. 

    Can I be put down for 18 NSDs for March please?

    Up to 23 NSDs :) I am confident that I’ll meet my goal of 26 for Feb - just spending the next few days at work, so no opportunities!

    Thank you for running this challenge @cathybird, it's been quite a revelation to me about my spending habits and it's really making me consider my outgoings.  I feel I am planning better but could improve.  I''ll stick with 14 again for March but like to think I could improve on it! xx
