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 am still struggling with the flu and pneumonia. I was able to get all of the necessary medication. I was also able to get Tamiflu for Ro and the girls. It would be a nightmare for them to get sick right now, especially because their birthday is on Thursday. I’m going to do whatever I can to make sure they still healthy. I can’t believe I am getting ready to have twin teenagers. I’m going to enjoy my final two days of having tweens (sigh). Time is precious and goes too quickly for sure.
I had to isolate myself yesterday, so I couldn’t go out and do much. I did get a few Amazon items that I had ordered last week with an Amazon. I also managed to do my Bing searches. I had blown my long streak, but oh well, you can’t help it when you’re sick. I’m hoping I feel better today…
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !!!
