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 yesterday. I know I’m weird, but I love the rain. I ran out to the Dollar Tree to get newspapers. We ran to Aldi to get some things for the week. We ate lunch and dinner at home. I took Olivia to a basketball with her AAU team. She played well and had a good time. Ro made dinner for us while we were gone, which was awesome. I went to visit a friend who is in the hospital. Olivia went with me. We did some things to get ready for the week when we got home. We watched some of the Olympics figure skating before going to bed.
I did all of my Bing searches and met my first Swagbucks goal.
What have YOU done to ditch debt ? Let’s make 2018 our year !!
