Could you go 31 days without spending any money?
If you were successful, what wonderful and significant thing could you do with the cash you saved?
Thousands of people from all over the world have started the year financially strong by participating in the January Money Diet and taking a month-long break from nonessential spending. This no-spend month explores ways to live well and have a fabulous time—without spending cash.
Go On a Money Diet Any Time
If you want to do a month-long money diet on your own, you can start reading the first post and Challenge #1 here and do the exercises at your own speed. (You’ll see links to the next posts right above the Comments on each page, to help you proceed through the articles.)
“The January Money Diet was the perfect spring board for me in my journey of getting out of debt in 2015. I saved a total of $700 by only buying essentials. I’ll be using the extra cash to pay down one of my debts! What a great way to start the year.” – Kris, 2015 January Money Diet participant
The Eighth Annual January Money Diet will begin January 1, 2017. Throughout the challenge, Happy Simple Living posts money-saving tips, photos, recipes, do-it-yourself ideas, moneymaking strategies, challenges and reader suggestions to help you start the new year right.
