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 uneventful day yesterday. I did some cleaning and organizing. I also made all meals at home including cheeseburgers and hot dogs on the grill for dinner. I spent a good chunk of time helping the girls with their summer math packets. They did the work, but I had to read over their packets and make sure everything was correct. The only problem was that I have to reteach myself fractions every once in awhile and I’m a teacher, lol. To be fair I taught special education and we never got to the fractions phase. We concentrated on the basic operations. It all worked out well and their both nearly finished. They finished their summer reading book reports, so after the packets are done we’re all set. They go back to school next Tuesday, so just in the nick of time 🙂 I did all of my Bing searches and watched a show on TV with Liv before bed. I also spent some time investigating a side hustle I’m interested in. More in that to come (if it works out)…
Let’s make 2019 OUR year !!! We can do it !!
