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 pretty good day yesterday. The girls had lots of online schoolwork to do in the morning. I don’t know if I mentioned it or not, but Ro had a nosebleed over the weekend and he ended up going to the hospital where they had to pack it because they couldn’t get it to stop either. He went to the ENT yesterday and he was able to get the packing out. He went to the same doctor that did my thyroid surgery. He had a great appointment.
I made chicken cheesesteaks and fries for dinner. I sat outside with the girls for a few hours so they could shoot their basketball shots (250 each). I looked up free movies the other day on the TV and made notes of a few movies I wanted to watch with the girls. One of the movies was Benny and Joon. We watched it last night. They loved it. Another one on my list is Phenomenon with John Travolta, lol. It’s a good time to expose these kids to the good stuff – he he. I did manage to do all of my Bing searches.
So how about you ? What did you do ?? Let’s make 2020 our year !!
