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, but boring day yesterday. Olivia wasn’t feeling very well, so I stayed home with her all day while Ro went out with Kayla for awhile. I made all meals at home and dyed Easter eggs with the girls. They informed me that they no longer believe in the EB among other things, which is a bummer. They are 10 now, so I guess it’s to be expected lol. We kind of had fun with it during the day. The new washer and dryer finally came for our rental. The old set there was about 15 years old, so it was time. We had some major issues with Best Buy delivering them to a rental, which is another story, but it’s there and working great now. I did all of my Bing searches, but no luck with Swagbucks once again.
Happy Easter everyone. I hope you have a peaceful one with your families. There are NO coupons this week, so relax and enjoy !!!
What have YOU done to ditch debt ? Let’s make 2017 our year !!
