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 started to feel a little better yesterday. Before I got the flu and pneumonia we asked the girls to make a menu for the week since it’s their birthday week. On Monday I wasn’t able to make anything on the list because I was feeling really lousy. Yesterday I made it a priority to get something on their list made. I ended up making the taco salad that Kayla requested. I also had tortilla chips and salsa and rice to go along with it. I also got them a special treat for when they got off of the bus. I spent the rest of the day resting and recovering. I did manage to do my Bing searches. I also entered some receipts on the Fetch Rewards app (use code XH3HB to get 2000 points to start you off). I have enough points for a $10 Amazon gift card right now.
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !!!
