Michelle McGagh has been writing about money for over a decade. You'd think that would make her a whizz with her own cash, right? Wrong!

Spending with abandon and ignoring bank statements were her modus operandi. Just because she wasn't in serious debt, apart from her massive London mortgage, she thought she was in control. 

She wasn't.

Something needed to be done but rather than cut back here and there, Michelle's approach was more radical. She set herself a challenge to NOT SPEND ANYTHING FOR AN ENTIRE YEAR.  She pays her bills and she has a minimal budget for her weekly groceries and household essentials but otherwise Michelle doesn't spend any money at all. 

Yet she STILL found creative ways to get the things she needs, to travel and most of all enjoy her time. 

Not only has she saved £22,000 in one year, but she no longer feels the desire to buy things all the time or the pressure of being sold to. 

Her relationship with money, with things, with time, with others has changed for the better.

Michelle's been featured by The Guardian, The Telegraph, The DailyMail, Cosmopolitan, and TEDxManchester.  She will be sharing with us her witty and honest personal account of The No Spend Year.  

It's an evening that will help you get to grips with your own financial situation, with personal finance tips and life hacks about mortgages, savings, pensions and spending less to help you find your personal financial freedom!
