I'm pledging 14NSDs this month. I'm abroad for 10 days otherwise I'd aim higher!

Main goal this month is saving for the trip. Ill be meal planning weekly with no top up shops allowed in between. Total grocery budget for the 18 days we will be home is £25 as cupboards are looking healthy. We are having a family cinema day in Saturday (£25 for two 3d movies for 3 people) I also need to advance book the bus to airport so I get discounted rate. (£16) and DD needs guide and swim money.

Should be under £80 spend this month ( excl bills!)

I've had another one today, so now 8/10.

Half term looms next week, so I odubt there'll be many nsds for me - will more than likely be popping out ot the shops on a daily basis for lunch bits, or just for something to do!

MamaTo2FabBoys Sun 17-Feb-13 17:14:18

Managed a nsd today so 9/12, only 3 more to go. Hows everyone else doing?

MamaTo2FabBoys Fri 15-Feb-13 16:01:51

yeepee 8/12 today

silverfrog Fri 15-Feb-13 14:38:16

looks like today will be a nsd, so 7/10 for me.

the weekend is a write-off (dd2's birthday, so bound to spend on something), and next week is half term <gulp>

still, only just over half way through the month, and not far from my target of 10 smile

Today is heading to be a NSD. Yesterday nearly was but needed bread so spent £1.25. If I manage today then I'll have done 7/10

MamaTo2FabBoys Fri 15-Feb-13 06:20:09

Had to spend some money on shopping yesterday so still on 7/12.will try today though

TinyDiamond Fri 15-Feb-13 01:42:53

7/12 now

stormforce10 Wed 13-Feb-13 18:48:59

Have also just done my 6th NSD so 6/10

We are off to London on Saturday and I think NSDs will suddenly become extremely hard to achieve as its also half term next week. I'll try to have another one tomorrow then will have to have an extremely frugal time the last few days of February. Tuesday may be a possiblity as we'll be home with nothing planned but I have a feeling it won't turn out that way

silverfrog Wed 13-Feb-13 15:59:02

Am up to 6/10, and have done all dd2's birthday shopping. Now just need to finish off getting bits for her party...

but pleased to have managed 6 by this point - still more than 2 weeks left to achieve 4 more nsds smile

MamaTo2FabBoys Wed 13-Feb-13 15:48:34

Managed another nsd as went into town on the bus with our bus passes and went to Hamleys where they had loads of free entertainment. We took our own lunch so boys had a great day and are now tired and in a bath ready for a relaxing night before going back to school tomorrow

MamaTo2FabBoys Tue 12-Feb-13 18:39:10

6/12 today as we had friends over to play and for lunch

Twinkletoes91 Mon 11-Feb-13 20:28:21

Spent a bit on good and house hold necessities on Saturday, but Sunday and today have been no spend days smile
7/10 (really chuffed!) :D

MamaTo2FabBoys Mon 11-Feb-13 19:04:26

5/12 today, nearly half way there

TinyDiamond Mon 11-Feb-13 09:44:01

yesterday was a spend day as we went out for brunch and I did a top up shop. today will be nsd as I've woken up poorly so me and dd are having a quiet day at home
