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 battling the flu and pneumonia, but the flu seems to be getting better. I am not sleeping because I am coughing all night and worried about waking up Ro. He’s super sweet about it, but I just worry about him being tired at work. I made a big dinner for everyone (Mississippi Crock Pot Roast Beef, Mashed Potatoes and Asparagus). I stayed in the house all day cooking and resting in between. I did manage to do my Bing searches.
So, enough about yesterday ! TODAY my babies turn 13. I cannot believe I am getting ready to have teenagers – ACK ! Please take a moment to pray for me… just kidding, my girlies are wonderful (so far). We will have a dinner of their choice and a little cake. We will have a bigger celebration on Saturday. For today I am sending in cake pops with Kayla and Dunkin’ Donuts Munchkins with Liv. All of the kids at school will sing to them at lunch and many of their friends have little surprises in store for them. They make a big deal about birthdays at their school, which is really sweet. I am very blessed to be their momma. I always tell people that I felt like I had little souls calling me from Heaven before they were born. They are and will always be the best Valentine’s Day gift Ro ever gave me…
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !!!
