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 decent day yesterday. I slept until 8:45 when I meant to get up an hour earlier, so that made for a late start. Both of the girls have little colds, which is a bummer. I went over to hang out with my mom for the day so that my dad could go to work. The girls out with their cousins for the day. I told them that I’d cancel with my dad so they could stay home, but they really wanted to go. We got pizza for dinner since I was out all day. The pizza place around the corner has a 2 large pizzas for $18 deal on Thursday nights, so we did that. I was super excited last night to see the first Eagles preseason game. We love football in our house (and basketball). We’re excited for the Fall sports season to get underway !
I did all of my Bing searches and met my first Swagbucks goal.
What have YOU done to ditch debt ? Let’s make 2017 our year !!
