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 getting debt free each day. One winner will be chosen to win a $25 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: We had a fun, family day yesterday. I actually didn’t leave the house or spend any money. We cooked out on the BBQ for my parents, my brother and his family and one of my sisters and her family. I think we had company for about 4 or 5 hours. Ro sang karaoke for us and then he did a duet of an Elvis Presley song with my mom. It was really sweet. My brother and I also did a few songs from our childhood. It was really fun. Everyone brought something and we ate leftovers for dinner. I think we still have some leftovers to put with dinner tonight.
I earned 96 Swagbucks yesterday, which was good since I didn’t devote a lot of time to it. Before and after the party we cleaned, cleaned, cleaned. It’s nice to start out the week with a clean house
