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 good day yesterday. The girls had an early practice. I dropped them off at that and then ran around doing some errands. I got some great deals at the grocery store and stocked up on meat, cereal and other items. I came home and entered my receipt on the Kellogg’s Family Rewards website to claim my points and to get credits for 6 more FREE books. I bought 10 Kellogg’s cereals, but I had already claimed 4 free books and there is a 10 book limit per person. I also entered my receipt on Checkout51 since there is currently a $.75 offer for Nabisco crackers and I bought 6 boxes of Wheat Thins.
I made chicken nuggets and fries for dinner. I had made some more elaborate dinners earlier in the week, so I was wanting an easy dinner night.
The mail included some FREE samples and good coupons for full size products. I made a list for some CVS deals that I hope to do today. I may go to one of my favorite grocery stores today to do a few deals before the new grocery store deals start tomorrow. I did all of my Bing searches. I watched the Sixer game before bed.
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !
