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: It rained all day and night here yesterday. I love rain, but it was more of a cold, icky rain. I did manage to get the girls out of the house to go and watch their cousin’s basketball game. It was a big win, so that was fun. Ro went to BJ’s to get a few things for the week’s lunches. We always buy groceries and a few other items there. We ate all meals at home. Dinner was leftover surprise – the rest of the enchiladas from Friday. I actually have one of the low carb ones left, so I may eat that for lunch today. I spent a good part of the rest of the day helping the girls straighten their hair. They don’t do it very often because they have beautiful curls and we love the curls, but once in awhile… It’s a LONG process and I helped out here and there. I did all of my Bing searches. Kayla and I watched the Sixers/Lakers game before bed. I also listened to some of Chris Hogan’s podcast during the day when I wasn’t
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !!!
