The January Money Diet starts soon at Happy Simple Living

In three weeks, we’ll embark on the third annual January Money Diet. Care to join us? If you’d like to save more money, reduce debt and spend less during the coming year,  join now and start 2012 financially strong.

It’s a simple challenge, really; starting January 1, 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.

To participate, simply leave a comment over on the January Money Diet page confirming your participation. You’ll find a button you can post on your own website if you like, and you’ll be automatically entered for the drawing of a deluxe Happy Simple Living prize basket at the end of the month. I hope you’ll join us, and here’s to a financially fit, fun-filled 2012!

    I think everyone should think more seriously about how they spend their money. With the cost of food and fuel skyrocketing should drive us to be more frugal. I am exciting about see your ideas and not spending unless it is an absolute necessity or emergency. Thanks for allowing us to follow along.

  • Just found out that I am losing 703 dollars a month. Although I am 100% disabled by social security, my former employment’s long term disability has denied me further benefits. I wish I could work! This money diet is very timely given my new money loss. Thank you for the opportunity.

    Perfect timing for such a topic! Yesterday, I had a heated discussion with a fellow board member of a non-profit writers’ group. She wanted to take $50 and buy “little cute things” to give out at our holiday party (pencils, magnets, etc.) I argued that as board members, we are responsible to use other people’s money in a prudent manner. She argued that she was generous (with other people’s money) and I was stingy. I am going to suggest all the board members participate in the January Money Diet! Thank you.
