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. Olivia woke up wanting to make everyone breakfast, so she made omelets and pancakes from scratch for all of us, which was awesome. I did all of the dishes. I made a huge crockpot of homemade meatballs for dinner. We have some left for today, which makes me happy. I always joke with my family members that meatballs are my “Death Row Meal”. They are my ultimate dinner and they have to be homemade. You’ll never see me ordering them at a restaurant. What’s your DRM ? What’s the one meal that you look forward to eating ?
We went to the YMCA to go swimming and to go in the hot tub. We spent a few hours there and had an awesome time. We were all tired and starving after swimming, so it was good that I had meatballs in the crockpot. I had rolls too, so everyone had a meatball sub for dinner. I did all of my Bing searches.
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !!!
