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 good day yesterday. I got dinner ready early in the day and then I put it in the fridge so it could just be popped in the oven and warmed up. That made the day go very smoothly. I met my parents for lunch. I did a few deals at Walgreens and met someone from the FB yard sale site to sell them a $30 item. Kayla made a cake after dinner. Ro took the girls to a 2 hour basketball practice. I cleaned up the kitchen and packed lunches while they were gone. A few items from Amazon arrived. The girls and I wrapped a few family gifts. I didn’t meet my Swagbucks goals again, but I did do my Bing searches. I listed a few more things for sale on the FB yard sale site.
What have YOU done to ditch debt ? Let’s make 2017 our year !!
