Happy Publication Day to Michelle McGagh and The No Spend Year

We are wishing a very Happy Publication Day to Michelle McGagh and The No Spend Year: How I spent Less and Lived More which hits bookshelves today!

After ignoring her own finances for years, the shock of her own spending habits made financial journalist Michelle McGagh make a drastic decision: a one year long spending ban. The book The No Spend Year is the story of Michelle’s discovery of how we spend, how we can spend better, and how we can not spend at all, and is essential reading for anyone who wants to get more bang for their buck.

The No Spend Year is Michelle’s honestly written and personal account of her challenge. But it is more than that, it is also a tool for life that will help you get to grips with your own financial situation.

She talks about money in an accessible, unintimidating and often entertaining way and interspersed throughout are really brilliant personal finance tips and life hacks about interest, mortgages, savings, pensions and spending less to help you live a more financially secure life too.

Michelle McGagh is a freelance personal finance journalist. She has been writing about money for over a decade for titles including The Guardian, City Wire, AOL and Money Observer, as well as regular TV appearances as a financial commentator.
