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: We had a fun, family day yesterday. We are still in Baltimore, MD for a little mini-vacay before school starts back up on Tuesday. We had fun visiting with family. We are staying at a hotel with a room right on the harbor, which is beautiful. We will be home a little later on today, but we had fun. I think we swam together for almost 4 hours in the hotel pool yesterday. We got a great deal on or room because it included a breakfast buffet for each of us each morning and it was luxurious. They had every kind of fresh fruit you could imagine all sliced nice and thin. They also had just about everything else you could want including omelets made to order… It was a fun weekend – a little expensive, but we NEVER go anywhere. As a matter of fact I think our last vacation was 3 years ago and it was only for two days that time too. I did manage to do my Bing searches, but that was about it 🙂
Let’s make 2019 OUR year !!! We can do it !!
