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. I had an appointment with my endocrinologist yesterday morning. It was a follow up from my thyroid cancer surgery last November. I had a good appointment. He ordered a lot of bloodwork to see if my thyroid meds need to be adjusted or not. The girls were done school by 11am. They just had to go to their closing mass where honors ribbons were awarded. They both got second honors, so we were happy for them. They are officially done with the 6th grade 🙂 We ate all meals at home. I made a huge pot of pasta for dinner. We have some leftovers for today. We had leftover pizza for lunch yesterday. I took the girls out for a $1 ice cream cone from McDonald’s to celebrate their report cards. Ro took them and their cousin to the YMCA to go swimming before bed. I did all of my Bing searches. It was a full, but fun day !
What have YOU done to ditch debt ? Let’s make 2019 our year!!
