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. The girls had a 2 hour delay because the roads were a little rough. I had to spend a little time helping out a family member mid-day. I did a few things around the house. I had lunch at home and packed lunches for the girls today. We had leftover lasagna with garlic bread for dinner. The girls and Ro had a playoff basketball game after dinner. We won by 4 points, but it was a nail biter. I needed a nap when I came home, lol. After the game the girls, their cousin and a few other girls from the team and their brothers had fun shooting around for 1/2 hour. They had the best time and it was fun to watch. I did all of my Bing searches and I earned a few Swagbucks during the day. I sold an item on Amazon and an item on Ebay, so I’ll have to ship that out.
What have YOU done to ditch debt ? Let’s make 2019 our year!!
