    I've gone for 15 this month, as my Baby has a birthday towards the end &--fingers X--I am going to see the rellies Have to be honest & say that it wouldn't be happening yet if No1 Offspring wasn't keen to drive all that way [approx 950 miles just to get there ] thereby halving the cost of travel so I'm just hoping our plans work out

    Hi newbieish person here!

    I'm in the 1st month of my DMP and my 1st month in 15 years without a salary. So its time to rack up my DMP days.

    Can i pledge 20 please, as i will be house bound most of the time.

    Thanks x

    Can I join in please? Now that I'm feeling a bit more in control of my finances I'm finding it difficult not to get too complacement and just spend £2 here, £5 there etc so I'd like to try and get a hold on this in March.

    I'll try for 15 no spend days please. Not sure how I'll get on with this but I'd rather aim relatively high and see how it goes. Thanks.

    Can I go for 15 again please BigMummaF? Thanks for running this challenge - doing NSD's along with the grocery challenge really makes me think about how much I'm spending. My OH hasn't commented yet on the lack of food so he's obviously not suffering too much, despite the weird and wonderful meals we've been having to use the random stuff lurking in the back of the cupboard.
    Good luck everyone - heres hoping for a sunny March after all this white stuff!

    Hi, i'm joining again, but after doing two months of NSD's i've really been evaluating how i spend, and i'm going to spend less by having less NSD days!

    Explanation - mainly eat fresh food and found that by cutting down to shopping one day a week - food wasn't as fresh - so was eating not so healthy food!! So by going back to twice a week shopping - mondays and thursday - can still eat fresh.

    Going to try and limit my spend days to these two days - but got daughters b'day this month, so reducing NSD's to 15 this month please and i'll hopeful;ly save even more money this way!!

    Fingers crossed!!

    I went for 12 cos I'll be home visiting my folks last weekend of the month, and I know I'll be spending then....Then I'll be on hols, so it'll be lean whilst I try and get work finished.

    hi

    I'm back again. Can you put me down for 20 this month please. I'm up to 15 already for Feb and i'm not likely to be spending again this week.


    I'm quite organised for March as already bought my Mum's day pressies and it's my niece's birthday too, and that's sorted. Also already bought most of March's groceries (excl F&V and milk) using the savings i'd already got from Feb's GC. There were some good offers on at Mr A so thought i'd stock up as they expire on 2nd.

    I think i've also been paid a visit by Pure dead dopey's aliens

    Hi there BigMummaF!

    I dropped on the challenge at the end of last year but as March is a tight month alongside needing some more debt busting business need to get back on track. I've been doing this unofficially for Feb and am on 8 so far and aiming for a few more this week.

    I am aiming for 15 this month - need to aim high this month and hope I get there!

    Off now to pop it in my siggy

    Please Bigmumma can you put me down for 16 might be a bit ambitious but have made my target for Feb with days to go so I feel the need to really really push my self, it so helps me to keep on budget. Thanks
