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 good day yesterday. I took one of the kids to the doctor first thing in the morning. I came home and found out that one of my brothers was having a major asthma attack and needed to go to the ER, so I went over and scooped him up to go. I stayed with him for a few hours and then his wife was able to get there to hang out with him. Hopefully he’ll be feeling better today.
I was actually on my way to the grocery store to get things to make a big dinner when I got the call. I ended up getting everyone a quick dinner because that was the only option, but that was just fine. I watched the Sixers and took my sleepy self to bed 🙂
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !!!
