This week I was off work ill for most of it, and as a result I accumulated several No Spend Days (days where I didn’t spend any money) or NSDs as they shall forthwith be known. 4 this week, 5 in total. This year I am aiming to have a minimum of 10 a month so that roughly a third of this year will have involved the money staying in my wallet.
I still managed to spend a lot of money though as we had an online food shop delivered which contained a special treat – a bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin. I only bought it because I had £10 in loyalty points for the Supermarket where I bought it from, so that is the only way I could afford it.
I have never bought a bottle of Bombay Sapphire before and it is my favourite gin (of the limited range I have tried) so I am very happy.
It does mean that even with the discount the food budget ended up being a bit depleted this week.
