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 had a good day yesterday. The girls and I had lunch with my parents. After lunch we ran to Walgreens to do some deals. I ended up with 4 toothpastes, 1 Oral B dental floss, 3 candy bars, 1 Tide liquid detergent and 1 pack of Tide Pods for $4 after coupons and rewards. I was pretty happy with that. I made sausage, peppers & onions and mac ‘n cheese for dinner. I did all of my Bing searches. I listened to a few of my favorite financial podcasts in between things yesterday. That always keeps me motivated and gives me new ideas. The girls and I watched a FREE movie that I had DVR’d a few weeks ago. They only have less than a week left before they start 7th grade, so they are having a few more nights of staying up later than during the school year 🙂
Let’s make 2019 OUR year !!! We can do it !!
