It’s September’s answer to the No Spend Challenge. Here’s how to start it:
If you really want to commit to the challenge, though, lock your pots
With the changes to the way locked pots work, I wouldn’t have bothered putting this in the article.
You can unlock them early now, removing most of the friction and therefore their entire point.
Like what do you mean changes
Oh yep this. I mean there is still the point because that might be enough to make people think twice since it closes the pot as well - mainly for people who are doing this challenge with a current savings pot with other money in it
I just gave this a test, and unlocking the pot did not also close the pot. Just turned it into a normal unlocked pot.
I’m looking forward to giving this a go
I’m a pro at this not buying useless crap, I’ve already done:
Not working out as well as I hoped in saving money.
I’m hoping No Spendtember is the one.
9th is the charm as the people say
Don’t buy plus you save money every month
I save money with plus compared to where I get my content insurance now by going the plus route
I take it you splurged out last Spendcember?
Spember as I like to call it is a double month of splurging in Nov/Dec for useless Xmas tat.
Shouldn’t people spend like this every month though?
Spend like what?
Do you mean only pay for essentials and nothing else? If so I imagine it would mean your life would be quite dull
Interesting. Which platform/app version are you using? On mine it only allows me to ‘Unlock and withdraw’ which closes the pot.
