    Awesome August's NSD challange. 31st Jul 18 at 9:55 AM
    This challenge is about setting yourself a weekly / monthly target of how many No Spend Days you would like to try and achieve during the month of August.
    Keep us updated with your progress and hope you all enjoy the challange.

    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

    2. Create a list of allowances...What counts as a spend and what doesn't. Keep the list on you so you don't fall of the wagon or make exceptions for everything

    3. Keep a tally of how many NSDs you get. See if you can beat your previous amount!

    We CAN do it

    Hi All!


    Catching up from the weekend.


    Saturday was meant to be a NSD but the sun was shinning and we just couldn't stay in. Money spent on a few too many ciders... I made sure Sunday was an NSD because of the money spent on Saturday.


    Monday & Tuesday both NSD, food shop done but this was within budget.


    Hoping for another one today!

    Yesterday was #6 and today is #7.
    I payed two bills today but don't count this as a spend since it's essential.
