If you are new to our NSC Series, start here!

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 Week Two:

This past week we focused on how to save money on your grocery bill. We talked about everything from saving bacon grease to growing your own food, making cheap bread and even desserts! 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!

Week 1 Update

We started the week with our week one update on Sunday, which told you all of our meals for the week, our money spent, and how the week was going! This is also where we take some time to give you an answer to any questions you may have.
