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.
* I will also be sharing my progress from the day prior.
My Progress: I had a pretty good day yesterday. I spent the day with my mom so that my dad could go to work. We had lunch together and watched all of her favorite shows. I did a few quick deals at CVS. I was able to get four 50ct. bottles of Aleve Back and Muscle tablets and one bottle of Aleve PM, razors and cough drops for only $6 after coupons, deals and ECB’s. I was really happy with that because we are stocked up for awhile :). I made dinner at home = marinated chicken breast, rice and veggies. The girls had a lacrosse game at their school in the afternoon and Liv is the goalie. She was extremely nervous since it is so new to her. She is getting better day by day and I am so proud of her bravery. Kayla played an awesome game too. She is a force to be dealt with for sure. We had fun watching a show we had DVR’d when we finally got home !!
What have YOU done to ditch debt ? Let’s make 2019 our year!!
