  • Hello everyone. May I join in again this month please. I have brought my own china cup for tea unless coffee drinking is essential.

    I was part of this challenge and then stopped because I thought I had got out of the habit of frivolous spending. Foolish me. The rot started with the odd Kindle download (it's only 99p and it's a book I really want to read etc etc), then developed into instant download cross stitch charts from etsy. Then July has been a very spendy month - lots of birthdays, a week's holiday with the grandchildren and suddenly instead of having money left at the end of the month I had to check that I wouldn't go overdrawn :eek:

    So bank balances checked, spreadsheets up to date and tomorrow is a new month. I don't count direct debits or petrol (not optional as needed for work and about half of it is claimed back as expenses) as spending as all are budgeted though if I buy something else when filling up with petrol that blows a NSD (thank goodness for pay at pump).

    I do have a wedding, and a couple of family celebrations so can you put me down for

    15 as my initial target with 3 in a row please.
