One of the biggest reasons for creating MommyLuvs2save was to create a community of moms and dads who want to help their family save money when buying essentials in order to free up money for debt repayment. My own family has paid off over $111,500 in consumer debt including credit cards, student loan debt and 2 vehicles. I am a teacher at heart. I want to use the skills that I have learned to help YOU ditch debt. I want to encourage each of you in your efforts so that one day you can feel the freedom of being debt free. I’m not quite there yet either (we still have a mortgage) so I need encouragement as well
It can be very difficult to pay down debt. There are many temptations to spend money. We live in a culture that encourages debt and spending. In addition, expenses come up and there never seems to be any extra money for paying down debt. I want to urge each of you to participate in a challenge. Just leave a comment about one positive step you’ve taken for your family each day. Did you eat in instead of going out? Did you save money at the grocery store? Did you pay extra on your credit card? Leave a comment below and we will cheer one another on every day and every step of the way.
The challenge is to leave a comment about what YOU have done to work on getItting debt free each day. One winner will be chosen to win a $50 Amazon gift card at the end of each month. To participate in the challenge you must comment on at least 10 posts during the month.
* I will also be sharing my progress from the day prior.
My Progress: Ro was off yesterday. We did start out the day at our favorite little diner. We got the $1.79 special and had water to drink, so it wasn’t too bad. I did run into the grocery store afterwards to grab the fixings for Halloweenies for tonight. My store has a cool deal this week where you can ”write your own coupons”. There are 5 one dollar coupons that you can write for whichever products you want in the store. I only needed 5 things for the Halloweenies, so it worked out great. I got out of there really cheap. The mail was good because I got a Minties bone sample for the dog. I also got a few Amazon items in the mail that I used a credit to buy.
Ro made dinner. It’s always nice when he’s home because he helps out with the cooking. I took the girls over to my sister’s house after dinner so they could play with their favorite cousin. They all had a great time together – as usual. I did some surveys and earned some Swagbucks after the girls went to bed. I’m going to hangout with my mom today so that my dad can go to work. We’re going to make Halloweenies and sugar cookies. It should be a crazy busy, fun day.
I hope you guys have fun with all of your super heroes and princesses ! Happy Halloween my friends !
