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: Rough day yesterday ! I didn’t leave the house. I didn’t save any money. I didn’t spend any money. I didn’t feel good all day. I was still throwing up as of 12:15am, but hopefully I’m done with that now. I still have way too much to do and I really wanted to be able to relax and enjoy the day and night. I LOVE Christmas Eve. I was so sick yesterday I just couldn’t make myself wrap any presents and now I have entirely too much to do to really enjoy it the way I wanted to. My hubby promised that he will help wrap gifts, but we have to wait until tonight unless we can get the twins to take a nap.
Sorry to be such a downer, but I had higher hopes for the day. I hope that you had a better one. Inspire me ~ Please 🙂
What did you do ? I hope you had a blessed day. Leave a comment You could be the December winner.
