## Alternative Methods For Knowing Days Until May 1st

### 1. The Pen and Paper Method

This classic approach involves writing down today’s date and then May 1st. Next, subtract the day of the month from 1 (e.g., June 14th – May 1st = 13 days remaining). For months with different lengths, you’ll need to factor that in as well.

### 2. Using Excel

`=DATEDIF(start_date, end_date, "D")`
