The No Spend Year
Published later this week The No Spend Year : How I spent less and lived more by Michelle McGagh is really an inspirational read.
Michelle is a freelance personal finance journalist who has been writing about money for over 10 years. But this didn’t stop her having money problems. She wasspending with abandon and getting stuck in the rat race, eventually she realised her aspirational spending was getting out of control. She decided that enough was enough and that she was going to take a radical approach to her finances.
She writes about her journey to her no spend year with a real clarity and insight that saw me nodding along.
It’s one thing to write about how to manage your money and quite another to do it.
But Michelle had a plan!
She discovered minimalism and sold 80% of her belongings and then she took her minimalist mindset and applied it to her spending.
The book is an account of her journey; her highs lows, what she missed, what she didn’t and the lessons she will take going forward. It is a fun and accessible read and it will really make you think about what you waste money on and how you too could seriously reduce your spending.
Michelle managed to reduce her grocery spending (food/house/toiletries) to £31.60 a week!!! Now that’s impressive
Do you fancy stepping outside the consumer cycle? If so this might be a really good read for you.
