Dazzling December'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 December. 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 much 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.
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 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.

    Hi Cathybird, aiming for 10 this month.  I guess it will be a very spendy month, so not expecting to hit target.  But you have got to be in to win!
    It takes a lot of money to look this cheap

    Mortgage outstanding - 31/10/20 - £43,500. 30/11/20 - £42,000. 31/12/20 - £40,650. 29/01/21 - £39,250. 26/02/21 - £37,850. 31/03/21 - £36,450. 30/04/21 - £39,050. 28/05/21 - £41,650. 30/06/21 - £48,200. 31/07/21 - £47,100. 31/08/21 - £48,400. 30/09/21 - £51,400. 17/10/21 - £50,000.

    Still I rise.
