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 decent day yesterday. I spent most of the day with my momma so my dad could go to work. I made her lunch She is a major bread snob. She was ready to throw away bread that was only a few days old. She gave it to me instead of the trash can. If she buys a new loaf, no matter how old the previous loaf is, it’s history. I made dinner. I ran out to CVS to do a few deals because I had a 32% off one coupon in my account and $23 ECB’s to use before they expired last night. I stocked UP on vitamins because we were out and I had all kinds of coupons that worked for an awesome deal. I also got a few other items. My total before coupons, deals and ECB’s was $68. I got it down to under $20, which was pretty good. I did all of my Bing searches 🙂
Let’s make 2019 OUR year !!! We can do it !!
