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 an okay day yesterday. I woke up with Pink Eye, which I had never had before. Where in the world did I get Pink Eye since I’ve been home for 90% of the time ? Ugh ! I was worried about it being contagious and me possibly giving it to the girls, so I went to see my doctor. I was hesitant to go to the doctor’s office with all that is currently going on. Luckily they had lots of hand sanitizer available and I was very careful. The doctor gave me some eye drops. While I was out I did venture to the grocery store because we needed some things. I was REALLY careful there and I didn’t stick around for long. I went in, got what I needed and I was out of there.
I made pizza for lunch and tacos for dinner. I made menu for the rest of the week based on what we have in the house. I helped the girls a little with their schoolwork. I’m thankful that they have schoolwork to do so that we have some semblance of normalcy. It was announced yesterday that the kids will be off from school for an additional 2 weeks. I think we are also under a Stay at Home Order as of now. I think we can only go out for groceries or for medical reasons. I hope this is over for all of us soon… I know we all miss our normal lives. Some of it is nice though – more time together … I did all of my Bing searches.
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !!
