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 productive day yesterday. I went to the grocery store after the kids got on the bus. I decided early in the day that I wanted to make low carb chicken quesadillas for dinner. I spent a good bit of time during the rest of the day making 2 trays of quesadillas, rice (for the carb lovers) and a huge salad. I found peppers and cucumbers on the discount cart at the grocery store. Everyone LOVED dinner and I have enough leftover for lunch or dinner today. I love cooking once and being able to feed everyone twice. I actually had all meals at home. After dinner the girls and I went over to hang out with my brother and his family. We had fun chatting while the kids all played. We also watched a basketball game while were there. I did all of my Bing searches.
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !!!
