Could you stop spending money for 31 days?
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.
“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

Here’s to a Bright New Year
When we stop mindless spending and focus on what really matters, money can be a means for us to do extraordinary things. If your financial situation is a source of worry or stress, I encourage you to join our like-minded community of people who take a spending break and get back on track.
Your first challenge will be delivered on New Year’s Day. My hope is that by participating in this group endeavor together, we’ll all start the new year a little wiser and a little richer — both personally and financially.
I’m here to support your goals and dreams, and I’m pulling for you.
