The annual January Money Diet, a month-long personal savings event, returns for its 13th year on January 1, 2022.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
On the first day of 2022, thousands of people from around the world will embark on a collective 31-day financial fast for the January Money Diet. Returning for its 13th year, the annual savings event offers encouragement, inspiration and various challenges to help people begin the new year financially strong. Past participants have used the money they saved to pay off debt, increase savings, or simply take a break from spending money after the holidays.
Food and lifestyle author Eliza Cross hosts the January Money Diet each year, posting tips throughout the month for living well, reducing monthly expenses, DIY projects, free ways to have fun, meal planning, and setting up systems for better money management. Participants share their financial challenges and triumphs in a private Money Diet Community Facebook Group.
“The theme of this year’s January Money Diet is ‘Making Space,’” Cross says. “The pandemic has caused many of us to reevaluate the things that really matter, and this year we’ll undertake challenges for reducing physical and digital clutter, developing systems to achieve amazing money goals, and creating more comfortable living and working spaces.”
The challenge is free to join at JanuaryMoneyDiet.com and begins January 1, 2022.
