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 decent day yesterday. It was actually a pretty low key day. I did run into both of my local grocery stores to get a few items at each store. One of them was offering a free 16oz. sour cream. Unfortunately they were out of the brand that was free, but they gave me a raincheck. I ate/made all meals at home. I made cheeseburgers and tater tot crowns for dinner. I forgot to mention yesterday that I got newspapers at the Dollar Store. I organized my coupons.
The mail was good to me yesterday. I got the remaining $300 rebate from the electric company = woo hoo ! I also got another $100 rebate. I’ll be heading to the bank today to get those in the bank. I did all of my Bing searches.
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !!!
