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: It rained again all day here. We’ve been wanting to get our outside lights, but all of this rain has been ruining our plans. Several other houses are lit up, so we have to get on our game around here. I made chicken tortilla soup yesterday and it was amazing (if I do say so myself lol). We were all happy with just that for lunch. Ro and I went to meet up with someone to sell an item from the FB yard sale site. After that we stopped at KFC and Ro picked up some food for everyone for dinner. I went to Dollar Tree to grab some newspapers and a few BIG bottles of conditioner that Kayla loves. It’s only sold at Dollar Tree. Liv had an AAU basketball game last night at 7:30. We picked up one of her friends to bring her with us. I did all of my Bing searches and scoped out some deals to do today.
What have YOU done to ditch debt ? Let’s make 2018 our year !!
