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. We hung out around the house for most of the day. We spent a few hours at the YMCA swimming, which was SO nice. We haven’t been there for awhile, so it felt great to be back. When we were getting ready to leave we heard the AWFUL news about Kobe Bryant dying. As you guys know our family is all about basketball, so we, like most of you, are mourning a terrible loss. That put a black cloud over the day. Of course my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and to the families of the other people on the plane. I still can’t believe it…
We ate all meals at home. I watched most of the Grammy’s with Liv. She has been looking forward to it for weeks now. I probably let her stay up too late on a school night, but hey, she LOVES music and she was so thrilled to watch it. I did all of my Bing searches.
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !!!
