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 dropped off Ro’s truck to get a new tailpipe because it wouldn’t pass emissions testing without it. We also went to the Dollar Tree to get a few things. We spent the rest of the day doing some cleaning and organizing. We got an air fryer delivered from Amazon. I used my birthday money to buy it. The girls tried it out on tater tots. We had simple meals for lunch and dinner. I took the girls to Goodwill before dinner to get a few T-shirts. With everyone stuck at home organizing, there were a lot of great T-shirts for them to choose from 🙂 I did all of my Bing searches.
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !!0
