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: We had a really busy day yesterday. I did a bunch of paperwork for the morning. I returned 2 items to Amazon and I already got my money back, which amazes me. I dropped the items off to UPS and I didn’t even have to box them up or print a label. I just showed them a code on my phone. I picked the girls up early from school to take them to the dentist. They had to go right to basketball practice after the dentist. I fed everyone dinner and then we ran over to my sister’s house to give my niece a birthday present. Her birthday is actually today, but we can’t see her today. I did all of my Bing searches and I set up a mystery shopping trip for this weekend. I’m excited because it’s one that I can take the girls to and it’s for a smoothie shop, so I know they’ll love that.
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !!!
