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.
The challenge is to leave a comment about what YOU have done to work on getting debt free each day. One winner will be chosen to win a $50 Amazon gift card at the end of each month. To participate in the challenge you must comment on at least 10 posts during the month.
* I will also be sharing my progress from the day prior.
My Progress : Well, you pretty much know what I did all day yesterday~ yep, pack & move boxes. Ro and my dad worked on building the garage pantry/stockpile area. It’s not totally done, but it looks great so far. I’m really excited to take my saving to the next level. I will post pics once I fill it up a little.
I managed to take back a few things that we don’t need and get $34 back (and change). We ate lunch and dinner at home and went back and forth to the new house two more times after dinner bringing more things. The movers charge $94 an hour and Ro doesn’t want it to cost too much so we’ve been doing all of the little stuff ourselves. We even took over everyone’s dresser drawers. We all laid out an outfit for tomorrow. I’m sure it will still be chaotic, but we’ll survive. Ugghh, he just unplugged the cable to get it all in one box for the cable guys. I guess the internet will be going soon too 🙂
My parents are taking the girls out for a few hours today so that we can get the bulk of the moving done. I will update you guys throughout the day as soon as I get cable in the new house. I have some posts scheduled and of course I will be having fun checking out your moving tips on my phone as I wait for the cable guy so keep ’em comin’. They have really helped me!
What did you do ? I hope you had a blessed day. Leave a comment You could be the December winner.
