What if a No Spend Challenge could feel good?

That’s the premise of this month-long, supported virtual group challenge.

No Spend Challenges can be a helpful tool on your financial journey. But often, they can leave us feeling deprived and stressed – and that’s if you finish the challenge at all.

This supported group challenge does more than help you save money. At it’s heart, this is all about identifying the mindsets, habits, and circumstances that make you spend money in ways that are regrettable and forgettable.

In general, this supported group challenge is for:

  • If you’re ready to kickstart a savings goal
  • If you’re ready to find extra cash to throw at your debt
  • If you’re wanting to discover cracks in your spending
  • If you have tried No Spend Challenges in the past and can’t seem to stick with it
  • If you are hungry to understand your spending habits and make more mindful decisions moving forward

While connecting with like-minded peers, you’ll learn:

  • How to set yourself up for a successful No Spend Challenge
  • Your unique spending triggers, and how to work with them in your daily life
  • What makes purchases regrettable or forgettable for you
  • How to celebrate your wins and carry these lessons long after the Challenge is over

What you’ll get:

  • Weekly live virtual support sessions (via Zoom)
  • Weekly encouragement emails to keep you motivated and on track
  • Official 15-page No Spend Challenge workbook

PRICE: $25 deposit + Pay What You Want at the End.

What does this mean?

You pay $25 to secure your spot.

Then you get to enjoy the month-long Challenge, and at the very end, you can pay me whatever you’d like to pay.

No funny business. No hemming and hawing. No gimmicks. Just an honest-to-goodness pay what you can/want deal.

OR: Pay a flat $125 market value fee for the Challenge upfront. If that feels good and convenient for you, please choose this option.

Either way is fine by me.

Frequently Asked Questions

A No Spend Challenge (sometimes called a “spending freeze”) is a way to challenge yourself to cut back on your spending, reset after going over budget, or kickstart your savings/debt goals.

Here are some common reasons you might want to participate in a No Spend Challenge:

  • To kickstart a savings goal
  • To cut back on regrettable/forgettable purchases
  • To reset after a period of overspending
  • To find extra wiggle room in your budget
  • To get a handle on spending triggers
  • To carve out extra funds to throw at debt

This No Spend Challenge is all about providing support, community, and encouragement. Throughout this challenge, you will learn skills to make more mindful spending choices in the future.

In addition to a 15-page workbook (which you can print-at-home, or use digitally on a tablet or computer), you also get:

  • 1 hour live virtual support sessions every Tuesday
  • Weekly encouragement emails with a video “pep-talk” sent straight to your email inbox every Sunday

As a Certified Financial Education Instructor, I care deeply about you getting the most out of this challenge – regardless of your ability to pay. Offering this event with a PWYC ticket option aligns with my ethics and values as a business owner and a human.

Here’s how it works:

If you select the $25 ticket, this holds your seat. I want you to have some skin in the game (and because I am limited to the number of spaces I can offer through Zoom). At the end of the challenge, you’ll be given a link to contribute whatever feels right to your heart and your wallet.

If you select the market value $150 ticket, you don’t need to do anything else. Your spot is saved, and you can ignore the PWYC link at the end.

That’s it. No gimmicks. No pressure. No sales. Whichever you choose is good by me.

While attendance to the live virtual support sessions is highly encouraged, it is not required.

For all attendees to feel safe to share, contribute, and be open with the group, live virtual support sessions will be split into two portions: an educational segment (which will be recorded and shared), and a community segment (not recorded or shared). During the community segment of the live Zoom meeting, attendees will be able to ask questions, share stories from their week, and offer suggestions to those needing additional support.

Refund requests will be accepted (no questions asked) until August 1, 2023.
