## Alternative Methods To Know The Date 1 Month Before Today

Here are two manual ways to find the date one month before today:

### Method 1: Counting Backwards

Step Description
Know Today’s Date Write down the current date (e.g., June 27, 2024).
Consider the Current Day If today’s date is greater than the number of days in the previous month (e.g., 27 is greater than 30 in April), simply subtract the current day from the current month (e.g., 27 – 27 = 0).
Move to Previous Month In this case (day greater than previous month’s days), move to the previous month (May) and use the remaining days in that month as the date (e.g., May 31st, 2024).
Direct Subtraction (if applicable) If today’s date is less than or equal to the number of days in the previous month (e.g., May has 31 days), directly subtract the current day from the current month (e.g., June 5th – 5 = June 1st, 2024).

### Method 2: Calendar Reference

Step Description
Find a Calendar Look at a physical calendar or a digital calendar app.
Locate Today’s Date Find the square with today’s date marked.
Move Back One Month Go back one month on the calendar.
Identify the Same Day Find the square with the same day of the month (e.g., if today is June 27th, find the square with the 27th in the previous month). That’s the date one month before today.

These methods are simple but they do require calculations. Do you want to learn a method that takes no calculations and is very simple? This countdown, duh!
