A New Year’s Resolution You Can Keep: The January Money Diet

When it comes to New Year’s Resolutions, 42 percent of Americans are considering financial goals this year. If you hope to save more money, reduce debt or spend less during the coming year, here’s an easy resolution that’s guaranteed to help you begin 2011 financially stronger:  join the January Money Diet.

It’s a simple challenge, really; we just don’t spend a nickel on anything but the utmost essentials for 31 days.

In lieu of spending cash, we find other ways to indulge, have fun and live large. Throughout the month, you’ll find postings with a variety of ideas, recipes, photos, links and tips to help you stick to the money diet — and pocket the cash.
