As some of you may know, we are in the midst of our first ever No Spend Challenge (NSC) which started January 1.

The short story is that my wife and I racked up a ton of debt (read how HERE) and want to pay it off as quickly as possible so that we can live our dream lives (read about our goals HERE). This challenge will help us learn about living frugal, saving money, and paying off our debt faster.

Visit our post, Frugal Living at its Finest: the No Spend Challenge, to view why we are doing the challenge, what the challenge entails, and the rules.

The hardest thing about budgeting and frugal living is doing it alone and that’s why we want to invite you all to join us on our NSC. Sign up below to opt-in to our email community, filled with exclusive tips and tricks for saving money to survive living frugal during your NSC month.

Follow our rules or make your own! Join for one week or the entire month! We know that not everyone is in the same situation we are in. Stick with the No Spend Challenge for as much or as little as you are able in your situation and don’t be afraid to hop on after the starting date (it’s never too late to join in on the fun!).

We’ll be taking the challenge right alongside you – with daily blog posts, encouragements, and exclusive email information and communication: this will be the single, greatest choice you make to jump start the New Year.




Posts From The First Week:

So far this week, we have had the chance to explore a bunch of different ways to save money and live on less! We talked about everything from homemade cleaning products to lowering your cell phone bill. That being said, it’s easy to forget what we read once we get to the end of the week – therefore, each Saturday during our “Your Turn” posts, we’ll give you a quick snapshot of the week’s posts. We’d love to hear some feedback for them in the comments!

  1. I have learned so much from all these posts this week! There are many things I can implement right now because I have the products on hand and now have the knowledge! My questions is: Is there an order we should start doing things, like a first step, second step type thing? I think it may be easier to break it down so as not be overwhelmed with so many changes.

    1. That’s great! I’m so glad that your’e starting to implement these strategies and take a hard look at finances. It’s difficult to do, but I’m proud of you for doing it! Thanks for the comment 🙂

    2. Also, I’m sorry – I forgot to answer your question! As for order, you can really pick and choose as you go. It doesn’t have to be a specific order, per say. BUT I’ll answer more in depth in our “Your Turn” post for next week (where I’ll add all questions from you guys) and we’ll figure out an order to make it less overwhelming. So glad you asked!
